Diddy Sued For Discriminating Against Old, Disabled People
According to TMZ, Sean “Diddy” Combs is being sued for discriminating against old, disabled people. In a recent lawsuit filed in New York federal court, a woman by the name of Francesca Spero alleges she and the hip-hop impresario “butted heads after she informed him that she needed major hip surgery in 2008…and then later ‘suffered a relapse’ to an addiction to prescription medication and alcohol.”
Spero, who describes herself as a “51-year-old white woman,” claims an “unsympathetic” Combs ultimately removed her from her post as an executive at Bad Boy Records and replaced her with a woman 10 to 15 years her junior who “lacked the skill set and experience [she] brought to the position.” Spero worked for Bad Boy for 12 years, and is seeking $12 million in for age and disability discrimination.
In response to the allegations, a representative for Combs told TMZ, “This is a grab for money by someone who concedes in her complaint to having had a drug relapse while on the job and an employer who was not satisfied with her work.”
Uh…yeah, it may not have been such a hot idea for this broad to mention her drug and alcohol problems in the lawsuit, SMH.
