According to TMZ, the former FIT goer, April Lampros, sued the rapper in the Supreme Court of New York County on Thursday. She alleges that the relationship began when the rapper began offering her a chance to learn about the fashion industry from him.

Lampros, 51, said she met with Combs at a SoHo Bar in 1995, and the self-proclaimed ‘ShSegue’ singer allegedly got her drunk on alcohol before taking her to his room at the Millennium Hotel.

Per court docs, what happened with April Lampros

She described the night as if “the walls were closing in on her” as the music mogul, 54, allegedly began to force himself on her.

The plaintiff claimed she was unable to defend herself and woke up the following day “nude, sore, and confused.”

According to the court documents, Lampros distanced herself from Combs for months until he reached out and invited her to events in the music industry.

Described as a “hopeful yet naive college student” in the filing, Lampros “took Mr. Combs at his word and believed that the first rape was a possible mulligan and decided to give him a second chance.”

She then recalled heading to dinner with the ‘I’ll Be Missing You’ singer when he forced her to perform oral sex in the parking garage.

The filing says they were spotted by a garage attendant, but Combs reportedly didn’t care.

After that night, Lampros avoided Combs, which led him to become angry and develop a “mobster persona,” and threatened to blacklist her from the industry.

In 1996, Lampros said she was “ordered” to Combs’s apartment, where she was introduced to his now ex-girlfriend, Kim Porter.

She alleged ecstasy was forced down her throat, and she was coerced to have sex with Porter as Combs masturbated.

Lampros claimed she was raped once again by Combs.

In 1998, Lampros severed her relations with Combs but recalled Porter, who died in November 2018, found her working at a restaurant.

Per the paperwork, Porter claimed to the restaurant owner that Lampros tried to poison her as a prerequisite to being fired, or she would close the restaurant together with Combs. Later that day, she was fired.

Lampros also named the record companies Bad Boy Records, Arista, and Sony Music Entertainment as defendants in the suit for compensation.

This new lawsuit is fresh on the heels days after a new lawsuit filed by a former model who accused Combs of drugging and sexually assaulting her too.
