Bad Boy Entertainment and its former president, Harve Pierre, were sued for sexual assault and solicitation less than a week after the company’s CEO, Diddy, settled a lawsuit filed by his ex-girlfriend Cassie, accusing the entertainment mogul of rape music, sex trafficking, and physical abuse.

Pierre is accused by a former employee known as Jane Doe of using “his position of authority as Plaintiff’s boss to groom, exploit and sexually assault her,” according to a complaint.

The lawsuit was filed on Tuesday, November 21, in New York Supreme Court.

The former employee alleged that “Pierre engaged in a year-long pattern of grooming” that led to sexual harassment and sexual assault “on multiple occasions” between 2016 and 2017, the lawsuit adds.

The anonymous assistant also named Bad Boy Entertainment, Bad Boy Records and Combs Enterprises as co-defendants for alleged negligence and gender-based violence.

The former employee said he “knew or should have known that Pierre was not suitable to hold a position of authority” before the alleged sexual assault.

A spokesperson for Bad Boy Entertainment told USA TODAY that the allegations were “never brought to the company’s attention.”

“Neither the plaintiff nor the executive are current employees of the company,” the spokesperson added. “We are now investigating the allegations and our top priority is the safety and well-being of our employees.”

Pierre, who has been with Diddy’s company since its inception in 1993, held several roles at Bad Boy Entertainment from 1991 to 2017, including head of music publishing, head of A&R and president, according to his LinkedIn profile.
