Your briefing on the latest headlines from across the US

The record label named in Rodney “Lil Rod” Jones’ lawsuit accusing Sean “Diddy” Combs of sexual abuse has fired back at the allegations against the label and its executives.

Attorneys for UMG Recordings and its Motown Records division sent a letter to a federal judge seeking their dismissal from the lawsuit.

This comes as a victim of the infamous 1999 Club New York shooting spoke out to reveal the extreme lengths she will go to prove that Diddy was her attacker.

Natania Reuben was shot in the face that night. She told NewsNation that she’d allow doctors to remove the pieces of a bullet still embedded in her head to get to the bottom of the truth. Diddy was acquitted of all charges after a 2001 trial.

Diddy’s past is back in the spotlight after his homes in Miami and Los Angeles were raided by federal agents on March 25, in connection to a federal sex trafficking investigation. Diddy has described the actions of agents as a “gross overuse of military-level force” and insisted he is innocent of any wrongdoing.

Universal Music Group fires back at producer’s Diddy sexual assault lawsuit

Lawyers acting for record label giant Universal Music Group are pushing for their clients to be dismissed from the case brought by producer Rodney Jones, who has accused Sean “Diddy” Combs of sexual abuse.

The lawsuit was filed in a federal court in New York in February, and accuses the music mogul of repeated instances of unsolicited groping and sexual touching. It also claims that Jones was made to work in a bathroom while Diddy showered and walked around naked, and that he was forced to sleep with sex workers.

Diddy’s lawyer branded the events described in the suit as “pure fiction” and said his team had “overwhelming, indisputable proof” that Jones’ claims “are complete lies.”

Donald Zakarin, representing UMG Recordings and its Motown Records division, is now asking the court to have the allegations against the label and former executives, including UMG’s CEO Lucian Grainge, dismissed.

Music industry giants named in recent lawsuit against Diddy

Rodney Jones named both Universal Music Group (UMG) CEO Lucian Grainge and Ethiopia Habtemariam, former CEO of Motown Records — owned by UMG — in his February lawsuit against Diddy.

Mr Grainge and Ms Habtemariam, along with their music labels and others, “are 100% responsible for the actions of Sean Combs,” Mr Jones claimed in his lawsuit. The producer said Diddy would threaten him with isolation from the music industry, using his connections with these CEOs as leverage.

The lawsuit states Diddy and his associates used “threats of isolation from the music and entertainment industry: parading powerful music industry executives such as Defendants Lucian Charles Grainge, Ethiopian Habtemariam at his parties filled with sex workers, minors, and illegal drugs, such as ecstasy , cocaine, GHB, ketamine, marijuana, and mushrooms.”

Earlier this week, Ms Habtemariam said she would be willing to testify about the contact Mr Jones signed to produce Diddy’s “The Love Album.” Meanwhile, Mr Grainge’s lawyers have filed a motion to dismiss the lawsuit.

“A license to practice law is a privilege,” Donald Zakarin, the attorney who represents UMG and Grainge, wrote per Billboard. “Mr. Blackburn, plaintiff’s lawyer, has misused that license to self-promote, gratuitously, falsely and recklessly accusing the UMG defendants of criminal behavior.”
