Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs has been hit with a lawsuit by a man who alleges he was attacked by the rapper’s bodyguards at a party following the BET Hip Hop Awards in October.
Jabari Tilgham claims he was beaten while working as a photographer at an afterparty hosted by Combs in Club Mansion in Atlanta, Georgia, according to a lawsuit filed in DeKalb County State Court on Friday.

The 30 year old maintains he was targeted by Combs’ personal security and assaulted while snapping celebrity guests at the bash.

A security guard who was working at the venue has confirmed Tilgham’s story in a signed affidavit, attorney Jeffrey Gewirtz tells the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

The suit includes Combs, four unnamed bodyguards and nightclub bosses as defendants.
