Sean “Diddy” Combs has been hit with a $12 million dollar lawsuit by a former employee, who claims he fired her from Bad Boy Records over her age and medical condition.
TMZ.com reports that Francesca Spero filed the lawsuit in New York Federal Court today (September 1st).
According to the lawsuit Spero identifies herself as a “51-year-old-white woman” who clashed with Combs after she revealed she needed hip surgery in 2008.
Spero, who was Vice President of Management and Publishing at Bad Boy Records, “suffered a relapse” into an addition to prescription medication and alcohol abuse.
She claims that Combs attempted to freeze her out of her position at Bad Boy until she was fired in March of 2010 and allegedly replaced with a woman who lacked her skill set, in addition to being 10-15-years younger.
Spero seeks $12 million from Combs and Bad Boy for age and disability discrimination.
