Now we know why Sean "Puffy" Combs is suddenly extra affectionate with his longtime concubine Cassie in paparazzi photos lately.
A lawsuit filed by Combs' former chef appears to blow the lid on the rap mogul's heretofore secret down low lifestyle.
Cindy Rueda filed a lawsuit against Combs in Los Angeles County Superior Court on Monday, alleging she was regularly asked to serve meals to the hip-hop star or his male friends while they were "engaged in or immediately following sexual activity."
Rueda says she was wrongly framed for theft and fired after she complained about it to Combs. Rueda cooked meals for Combs and his family from the beginning of 2015 until May, 2016.
In court documents, Rueda claims she sometimes served the music producer a "post-coital meal" while he was naked in bed, and he asked her if "she was attracted to or liked his naked body."
On a separate occasion, one of Combs' male friends allegedly wandered into the kitchen naked and asked her to "look at and admire his genitals."
The chef claims she routinely complained about the incidents to Combs' estate director Stacy Friend. Rueda also complained about not being paid for working overtime.
Rueda states she was "lured into" a situation where she was set up and accused of stealing.
According to Rueda, the rapper's executive housekeeper, Iris, offered her a watch that she said she found in the trash. Rueda says she took the watch, but she was later accused of stealing the pricey timepiece.
She says she was "told that she would not be prosecuted if she returned the watch and signed a waiver of all rights and claims against Defendants."
She said she returned the watch but refused to the sign the waiver and was fired a year ago.
The chef is suing the rapper for wrongful termination, sexual harassment, retaliation, defamation, failure to pay overtime and intentional infliction of emotional distress, among other claims. She is also seeking damages to cover unpaid wages and overtime as well as punitive damages.
Combs' representative vigorously denies the claims, telling TMZ.com, "This is a frivolous lawsuit by a disgruntled ex-employee who was fired for cause."
