  • Sean "Diddy" Combs and his son Christian "King" Combs are co-defendants in a sexual assault lawsuit.

  • The plaintiff claims Christian assaulted her on a yacht chartered by his father in December 2022.

  • Aaron Dyer, attorney for Sean and Christian Combs, discredited the lawsuit as "lewd and meritless."

Music mogul Sean "Diddy" Combs is once again entangled in legal problems related to sex crimes, AP reports.

Sean Combs, who is the subject of a federal sex trafficking investigation, has been named as a co-defendant in a new lawsuit accusing his son of sexual assault.

The plaintiff, Grace O'Marcaigh, filed a lawsuit against Sean Combs and his son, rapper Christian "King" Combs.

In the suit, she alleges that Christian Combs assaulted her on a yacht chartered by his father in December 2022.

O'Marcaigh was working on Victorious, a luxury superyacht built by Akyacht and owned and operated by Fraser.

The 278-foot superyacht sleeps 12 guests and can be chartered for $950,000 a week during the winter season when the $117 million vessel cruises the Caribbean and The Bahamas.

Christian Combs was 24 at the time, and his accuser was 25.

O'Marcaigh's attorneys filed the suit on Thursday in the Los Angeles Superior Court.

The lawsuit, reviewed by BI, states that O'Marcaigh worked as a steward in the yachting industry since 2018.

It states her planned career in hospitality and the yachting industry was derailed due to the "trauma" she has suffered as a result of the alleged assault.

The suit accuses the defendants of assault, battery, sexual assault, premises liability, aiding and abetting, intentional infliction of emotional distress, and negligent infliction of emotional distress.

Aaron Dyer, attorney for Sean and Christian Combs, discredited the lawsuit as "lewd and meritless" and said they would be "filing a motion to dismiss this outrageous claim."

Sean Combs leased the yacht in December 2022 and fully controlled the vessel's staff, including O'Marcaigh, said the suit.

During one shift, O'Marcaigh waited on Christian Combs, who she suspected was "intoxicated from a mixture of narcotics and alcohol."

He reportedly became "aggressive" and violently grabbed her arm and began hurting her.

The suit claims O'Marcaigh was then drugged and sexually assaulted by Christian Combs.

Producer Rodney Jones obtained an audio recording of the incident.

A transcript of the recording is included in the document, indicating that O'Marcaigh attempted to leave the situation as Christian Combs forced her to take tequila shots.

"I'm going to stop. Stop. I have to go. I have to go. Honestly, I'm like already losing sleep. I have to go now," said O'Marcaigh, per the transcript.

Later in the interaction, she asked him to stop touching her inappropriately: "Excuse me, you don't touch my legs like that. I'll move my legs where I want to."

At another point, she told the music mogul's son to "take your hand off my ass."

O'Marcaigh fought Christian Combs off when he stripped down and tried to force her into a nonconsensual sex act.

Christian Combs' "penis was erect, and he grabbed her arms," trying to force O'Marcaigh to "perform oral sex on him," the suit states.

The document shows photos of the injuries O'Marcaigh sustained during the altercation, including bruises on her arms.

The suit accuses Sean Combs of intentionally failing to ensure a safe environment on the yacht. It alleges he allowed his son to "behave carelessly" as he "observed and mimicked his actions."

The allegations against Christian Combs follow a slew of sexual misconduct allegations and lawsuits against his father.

"The apple does not fall far from the tree," reads the lawsuit.
