Snoop Dogg sued for sexual assault
Rapper Snoop Dogg (real name Calvin Cordozar Broadus Jr.) is set to appear in Sunday’s Super Bowl halftime show. However, he was hit by a sexual assault lawsuit, filed Wednesday in federal court in Los Angeles.
The lawsuit, filed by an accuser of Jane Doe who says she worked as a stage dancer for the star, claims she was assaulted by Snoop Dogg and his associate Bishop Don “Magic” Juan (real name Donald Campbell) in May 2013.
According to the lawsuit, as seen by Rolling Stone and others, Bishop was offered and agreed to drive her home, who instead took her to his home, where he sexually assaulted her. The lawsuit then alleges that Campbell demanded that she accompany him to a recording studio where Snoop Dogg was filming a television series. At the studio, according to the suit, plaintiff Jane Doe was feeling unwell and using the bathroom when Snoop Dogg entered and sexually assaulted her.
A Snoop Dogg source reportedly told the TMZ website that the lawsuit was deliberately filed this week before the Super Bowl. because the rapper will be performing at the halftime show.
In the filing, plaintiff Jane Doe says she attempted to resolve the dispute through a private mediation that took place on February 8, 2022. “Immediately after the mediation ended,” according to the lawsuit, Snoop Dogg posted an image on Instagram reading “Gold digger season is here”. The lawsuit alleges that Snoop Dogg’s message is “obviously threatening.”
So far there has been no public reaction to the NFL lawsuit.
