Combs’ legal team denounced Jones’ allegations as “absolute lies.”

“Lil Rod is nothing more than a liar who sued for $30 million shamelessly seeking an unearned payday. His reckless name-dropping of events that are pure fiction and simply did not happen is nothing more than a transparent attempt to garner headlines,” Combs’ attorney Sean Holley previously told Fox News Digital.

“We have compelling, irrefutable evidence that his claims are complete lies.” Our attempts to share this evidence with Mr. Jones’ attorney, Tyrone Blackburn, were ignored as Mr. Blackburn refused to return our calls. We will look into these outlandish claims in court and take all necessary action against those who make them.”
