15 Jul A new legal action filed against Diplo
A new legal action filed against Diplo declares that he intimidated a woman into carrying out oral sex on him and also recorded the encounter without her permission, according to lawful records acquired by TMZ. In the legal action, the female declares that she and her friends attended Diplo’s afterparty at The Wynn following one of his Las Vegas shows in 2019. At the afterparty, Diplo is said to have offered alcohol as well as cannabis to the already intoxicated group, and later on asked the plaintiff to accompany him in his personal area at the hotel, at which point Diplo’s safety and security started to eliminate people from the celebration. This included one of the lady’s male close friends, who was apparently punched in the face since he declined to leave without her.
In the files, the lady mentions that Diplo barred her from leaving the private space until she carried out foreplay on him. The manufacturer, real name Thomas Wesley, also filmed the act without her approval, the legal action affirms. The woman has submitted the legal action to seek problems, TMZ reported.
Diplo’s attorney Bryan Freedman shot down the cases made in the suit, calling the complaint “entirely outrageous”:
” This complaint is completely shocking, wildly false as well as yet also totally predictable, considered that it simply duplicates the specific same insurance claim already made by the plaintiff’s good friend Shelly Auguste, a person that has actually been pestering Mr. Pentz as well as his family members for more than a year and also currently has repeatedly broken the limiting order released against her.
We have irrefutable evidence that this is a completely meritless claim and also we will certainly be supplying it to a court as promptly as we perhaps can to put an end to this shakedown by Ms. Auguste and her associates finally.”
Freedman is significant for representing Diplo in a 2020 sex-related battery legal action submitted by Shelly Auguste, who charged the DJ of harassing her with vengeance pornography derived from among their sex-related experiences, said to be recorded without Auguste’s expertise or authorization. At the time, Freedman insisted that Auguste’s insurance claim belonged of an “ongoing campaign of harassment” targeting Diplo. Both Diplo and also Auguste applied for restraining orders against each other.
The new accusations have since led The Baltimore Orioles to terminate Diplo’s July 24 postgame performance at Camden Yards.
