Following the allegation of sexual misconduct against Diplo last November by Shelly Auguste, several women have shared their experiences with allegations, including Azealia Banks.
Today, an unnamed woman announced that she had sued Diplo after he allegedly filmed her while exploiting her sexually after a 2019 Las Vegas concert while intoxicated and unable to consent.
Her claim is that Diplo “invited her to a room, kicked out her friends, and wouldn’t let her leave until she performed oral sex.”
In an Instagram post, Diplo has finally narrated an incident resulting in his public statement.
“Culture is quick to follow unsubstantiated claims. I’m a public figure and this comes with the territory and I understand that. The previous claims have been dropped or abandoned and those facts go unreported. I am not this person and I won’t be extruded by anyone no matter how stinging the press can be. If anything, it has made me stronger and smarter. All of my friends and partners have neither questioned me and that was what has been important to me.
The people in my life know me for who I am. I will continue to do everything I can to put to end this most respectfully but I will not give in to the lies and harassment.” Said Diplo via his Instagram post.
