P. Diddy Sued by Ex-Employee for Alleged Age Discrimination

September 2, 2010 (7:55 am) GMT
Francesca Spero, 51, is seeking $12 million in damages from P. Diddy for an alleged age and disability discrimination.

Rap mogul Sean "Diddy" Combs has been dragged into a new legal battle by a former employee who alleges she was dismissed because she was too old and disabled. Francesca Spero, 51, claims fired her from her executive position at Bad Boy Records label earlier this year after she "suffered a relapse" of an addiction to prescription medication and alcohol following a painful hip operation.

According to her suit, filed in New York and obtained by TMZ.com, Spero alleges Diddy was "unsympathetic to her condition" and attempted to get rid of her. She was eventually replaced by a woman at least 10 years her junior, who she claims "lacked the skill set and experience Spero brought to the position."

Spero claims Diddy and his partners owe her $12 million in damages for age and disability discrimination.
