Things seem to be going Diddy’s way in the ongoing lawsuit a former nanny has filed against the hip-hop billionaire for unlawful termination.
The nanny, who was once a nanny to Sean “P. Diddy” Combs’ twin daughters, wanted the judge to grant her anonymity in her lawsuit.
Now Doe has been ordered to reveal her identity in court, RadarOnline has reported.
Court documents reportedly show a judge ruled in his favor.
The ex-nanny, referred to as Jane Roe in court papers, asked a judge to conceal her identity. This request came after she claimed Diddy accused her of extortion, with Diddy’s spokesperson telling TMZ the lawsuit is a “meritless shakedown.”
Roe says she believes she will face harassment from Diddy’s fans if her identity is discovered.
When Jane Roe sued Diddy in Los Angeles Superior Court in 2022, she said she was a niece of Diddy’s late girlfriend Kim Porter, who is the mother of the twin girls. Porter died at 47 in November 2018 of pneumonia.
Diddy has said this is untrue, that Roe is not a niece of Porter.
Roe said Diddy “personally asked” her to work as his nanny and hired her after Porter’s death in 2018 to care for the twins, Jessie James and D’Lila. They were 11 years old at the time.
Roe, who moved into Diddy’s home, said she was “responsible for the twins’ 24/7 care.”
The woman said she fired in January 2021 “because she was pregnant and unmarried, which purportedly set a bad example for [Combs’] daughters.”
Roe says she was fired without cause after she got pregnant in 2021 and is seeking unspecified damages. The termination caused her “intangible loss of employment-related opportunities and damage to her professional reputation” and has suffered “emotional distress,” she says.
Soon after the lawsuit was filed, Diddy issued a statement to TMZ that said Roe was not fired because she was pregnant and unmarried, but because it was a short-term gig.
“Her babysitting services were always intended to be temporary, especially since the girls were getting older and spending most of the day at school,” Diddy’s statement said.
It continued, “In fact, Raven’s transition out of her role was planned and agreed to by her long before she even mentioned that she was pregnant. Mr. Combs will take swift and immediate action to protect his family against these false claims.”
