Diddy sued by ex-chef over ‘post-coital’ dining chores
LOS ANGELES: Rap mogul Diddy has been sued by a personal chef who says she worked long hours without extra pay and was made uneasy by serving meals after sex parties.
Cindy Rueda sought an unspecified amount in damages for allegations — denied by Diddy — that include sexual harassment and failure to pay overtime wages.
Rueda said she sometimes worked from 9am to 2am as she cooked at the home of Diddy here, whose real name is Sean Combs and was formerly known as Puff Daddy.
The suit filed on Monday in said the rapper would ask Rueda “to prepare and serve entrees and appetizers to him and his guests while Mr Combs and his guests were engaged in or immediately following sexual activity”.
The suit said she at least once “was summoned by Mr Combs to serve him a postcoital meal” in which he made suggestive remarks.
On at least one other occasion, she said a naked male visitor entered the kitchen as she cooked and asked her “to look at and admire his genitals after he had engaged in sexual activity with another house guest”.
A representative for Diddy dismissed the accusations, saying: “This is a frivolous suit by a disgruntled ex-employee who was fired for cause.”
Rueda said she was fired last year after being accused of theft.
