Music legend and business mogul Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs is being sued by a former nanny for allegedly firing her after he learnt she was pregnant.
According to legal documents, Diddy was sued by a woman identifying as “Jane Roe” who worked for the rapper as a full-time nanny. She is reportedly the niece of Diddy’s ex-girlfriend Kim Porter, who is now deceased.
The suit claims that Jane Roe became a full-time nanny to Diddy’s twins after Kim passed away in November 2018. She claims that Diddy personally asked her to come to live at his estate…and become a full-time nanny to the twins.” However, she was fired 2 years later when she requested maternity leave.
She claims that she “provided stability during an extremely challenging time for the twins, who had just lost their mother, and contributed to a safe, nurturing, and stimulating environment in which they felt secure and loved.”Jane says she got pregnant in August 2020 and told Diddy she needed to take maternity leave, but says Diddy was “infuriated” and terminated her employment around the time she was set to begin her time off.
The nanny said she was told through Diddy’s reps she was terminated because she was pregnant and unmarried.
According to TMZ, sources to Diddy said that Jane was not terminated because she was pregnant, and that she was terminated for cause. They also claim that she is not related to Diddy or Kim.
