Diddy sued by ex-chef over ‘post-coital’ din­ing chores

New Straits Times - - World -

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.
