Singer Aaron Hall is also named in the lawsuit. The woman, identified as Jane Doe, accused Combs and Hall of assaulting her and her friend in the early 1990s.

Sean “Diddy” Combs is being accused of sexual assault by another woman, who alleged in a lawsuit that the music mogul and the R&B singer Aaron Hall assaulted her and her friend at Hall’s apartment in 1990 or 1991.

The alleged assault happened following an event at the offices of MCA Records, according to a lawsuit filed Thursday in New York Supreme Court, one day before the expiration of the New York Adult Survivors Act, which allows adult sexual assault survivors one year to sue regardless of when the original statute of limitations expired.

A spokesperson for Combs told NBC News: “These are fabricated claims falsely alleging misconduct from over 30 years ago and filed at the last minute. This is nothing but a money grab. Because of Mr. Combs’ fame and success, he is an easy target for anonymous accusers who lie without conscience or consequence for financial benefit. The New York Legislature surely did not intend or expect the Adult Survivors Act to be exploited by scammers. The public should be skeptical and not rush to accept these bogus allegations.”

Hall could not immediately be reached for comment.

Jane Doe says she was ‘shocked and traumatized’

The woman, identified only as Jane Doe, said she and a friend met Combs and Hall, who was a member of the R&B group Guy, at the record label’s offices for an event MCA was hosting. The friend is not named as a plaintiff in the lawsuit.

The suit alleges that Combs and Hall were “very flirtatious and handsy with Jane Doe and her friend” and offered them drinks throughout the event. Toward the end of the night, Combs and Hall invited Jane Doe and her friend back to Hall’s apartment for an after-party, according to the lawsuit.

“While at Hall’s apartment, Jane Doe was offered more drinks and was coerced into having sex with Combs,” the suit says. “After Combs finished doing his business, Jane Doe laid in bed, shocked and traumatized.”

While Jane Doe was trying to get dressed, Hall allegedly “barged into the room, pinned her down, and forced Jane Doe to have sex with him,” the suit says.

Following the alleged assaults, Jane Doe got dressed and ran from the home, according to the lawsuit.

The lawsuit accuses both men of sexually assaulting Jane Doe’s friend that same evening at Hall’s home.

“Upon information and belief, when Combs finished with Jane Doe, he and Hall switched, and they commenced assaulting Jane Doe’s friend,” the lawsuit alleges.

Days later, Combs went to the home where Jane Doe and her friend were staying, became “irate” and allegedly assaulted and choked Jane Doe until she passed out, according to the suit. It says that Combs was allegedly looking for the friend because he feared she would tell the “girl he was with at the time.”

In addition to Combs and Hall, the lawsuit names MCA Music Entertainment Group and Geffen Records as defendants. NBC News reached out to Universal Music Group, the owner of Geffen and now defunct MCA. A spokesperson there did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
