Diddy’s Former Nanny Withdraws Wrongful Termination Lawsuit, Ending One Legal Battle for the Hip-Hop Mogul

Music mogul Diddy is off the hook in at least one of his legal battles, finding some respite as his former nanny has withdrawn her wrongful termination lawsuit.

Initially reported by The Los Angeles Times as “Jane Roe” back in 2022, the nanny, who was hired in August 2020 and fired in January 2021, had previously asserted claims that Diddy discriminated against her based on her pregnancy and the stigma of being an unmarried mother-to-be.

What Happened to the Lawsuit

On April 10, as reported by My News LA, the woman was identified as Raven Wales-Walden, and her allegations of setting a “bad example” for his daughters were dismissed with prejudice. This legal action effectively bars its re-filing in the future.

However, details regarding whether a private settlement was reached between the parties remain undisclosed.

Diddy’s initial response to the lawsuit was a vehement denial. He contested the allegations as false, asserting that the nanny was terminated based on her purported failure to meet job expectations and misconduct in the workplace.

He adamantly refuted any claims of discrimination, labeling the lawsuit as a “meritless shakedown.”

Wales-Walden’s role as a full-time nanny to Diddy’s twin daughters, both of whom were 11 at the time, commenced following the passing of their mother, Kim Porter, in 2018. Porter tragically passed away from pneumonia at the age of 47.

Despite this, neither party has issued statements following the dismissal of the lawsuit, HipHopDX reported.

His nanny settlement also differs from his myriad of other legal entanglements, including accusations of rape, sexual assault, and sex trafficking, after Homeland Security raided his mansions in California and Miami.

In an official statement released through his attorneys, Diddy decried the “gross overuse of military-level force” during the property raids, NPR quoted the exact wording.

According to legal representatives of the mogul, neither Diddy nor any family members have been arrested or faced travel restrictions in connection with the allegations.

He characterized the investigations as a “witch hunt” fueled by baseless accusations made in civil lawsuits, asserting his unwavering commitment to clearing his name.
