  • A new lawsuit alleges Sean "Diddy" Combs participated in the "gang rape" of a high school student.

  • He denies the allegations.

  • It's the fourth lawsuit accusing him of sexual misconduct in less than a month.

Sean "Diddy" Combs now faces his fourth sexual misconduct lawsuit in three weeks — this time from a woman who says she was raped as a teenager.

A woman alleges Combs, his longtime producing partner Harve Pierre, and an unnamed third man raped her in 2003 when she was a 17-year-old high school junior.

The lawsuit, filed Wednesday under a "Jane Doe" pseudonym, alleges the three "sex trafficked and gang raped" her after Pierre met her in Detroit, where she lived, and flew her to Combs's studio in New York City on a private jet.

"While at the studio, Mr. Combs and his associates, including Mr. Pierre, plied Ms. Doe with drugs and alcohol. As the night wore on, the 17-year-old Ms. Doe became more and more inebriated, eventually to the point that she could not possibly have consented to having sex with anyone, much less someone twice her age," the lawsuit says. "While at the studio, Ms. Doe was gang raped by Mr. Combs, the Third Assailant and Mr. Pierre, in that order."

Over the past month, Combs has been accused of sexual misconduct in three other lawsuits and is a co-defendant in another suit brought against Pierre.

The first of those lawsuits was brought by Casandra "Cassie" Ventura, an R&B singer who alleged Combs sexually abused her during a years-long relationship. The two settled the lawsuit a day after it was filed.

Wednesday's lawsuit is brought by Wigdor LLP, the same law firm that represented Ventura in her case.

Seeing those lawsuits gave the accuser to bring her own case againt Combs, the lawsuit says.

"Doe obviously understands that she too had been sex trafficked, and that Mr. Combs' behavior in forcing women into nonconsensual sex was not an isolated incident or unique only to Ms. Ventura," the suit says.

In a statement provided to media outlets, Combs denied the allegations against him, declaring, "ENOUGH IS ENOUGH" and that he "will fight for my name, my family and for the truth."

"For the last couple of weeks, I have sat silently and watched people try to assassinate my character, destroy my reputation and my legacy," he said. "Sickening allegations have been made against me by individuals looking for a quick payday."

Pierre didn't immediately respond to a request for comment.

The new lawsuit includes photos of the accuser, with her face blurred, in the New York studio, including one with Combs.

Combs, Pierre, and the third man took turns raping her, the suit alleges.

"When Mr. Pierre finished, he left Ms. Doe in the bathroom alone,"
the lawsuit alleges. "Ms. Doe fell into the fetal position and lay on the floor. Her vagina was in pain."

The accuser "could barely stand up following the gang rape, and had to be helped to walk out of the building and back into a car," where she was driven to an airport and flown back home, the suit says. Her underwear was missing, according to the lawsuit.
