Alleged Diddy Assault Victim Says Mogul is “Engulfed in Fantasy”

An attorney representing a man who claims to have been punched by Sean “Diddy” Combs at a post-Oscars party last year has responded to a declaration outlining the mogul’s version of the events. On February 15, Diddy’s legal team submitted a statement from Combs claiming that the alleged victim, Gerard Rechnitzer, lunged at the Bad Boy founder and that “any contact between Mr. Rechnitzer and myself was caused by his forward motion against my stationary open hand.” According to the Los Angeles Independent, the man’s attorney filed a response to the declaration on February 20. “People do not bounce off hands with their face/body, they get punched,’’ Rechnitzer’s attorney Michael Marzban countered in his response. “The defense is engulfed in fantasy and not reality.’’ Marzban also wants statements made by Diddy concerning Mr. Rechnitzer’s medical condition to be disregarded and has asked that the mogul’s financial records be made available. Diddy has reportedly filed a cross-complaint denying any responsibility for the plaintiff’s injuries and placing the blame on a number of as-yet unnamed defendants.

    What is there to say about Diddy. I mean we all know he’s responsible for Biggie’s death(don’t hate yet, just my opinion, no fact). Just look, Both opponents in Pac v.s Biggie beef end up dead, and out of it all, Diddy’s the only one who comes out rich as hell. Just suspicious.
