Social media believes Usher and Meek Mill are separate from the Diddy lawsuit

First, let's be clear that these internet sleuths may be wrong. Despite all the clues they think they see in this lawsuit, there is no way to tell what is true and what isn't because most of us weren't there to see it.

In any case, the allegations against Diddy continue to pile up. Here's some background: We've all heard about music producer Rodney “Lil Rod” Jones' recent lawsuit against the hip-hop mogul. In the lengthy 73-page complaint, which can be read here, Jones claims he made audio and video recordings of Diddy and his associates engaging in “illegal activities.”

He also claims that Diddy forced him to gather sex workers and engage in unwanted sexual acts with them. The lawsuit names several people associated with the Bad Boy founder, including his son Justin Combs, his chief of staff Kristina Khorram, former Motown Records CEO Ethiopia Habtemariam and Universal Music Group CEO Sir Lucian Grainge.

According to NBC News, Jones didn't just file this lawsuit to expose people, he's seeking nearly $30 million.

This is where things get tricky and ugly:

Despite all of “Lil Rod's” claims, people on social media are speculating about people not named in the lawsuit, particularly Meek Mill and Usher.

None of the artists are named or accused of any crime in the document. However, since some newsrooms appear to be referring to two people who fit the descriptions of Usher and Meek Mill, social media detectives have taken notice.

For example, the lawsuit states: “Rapper (REDACTED) on Mr. Combs's yacht, having sex with underage girls and sex workers.”

Later in the complaint, the redacted name is described as a “Philadelphia rapper who dated Nicki Minaj.”

Here people are claiming that Meek Mill is involved since he doesn't hide the fact that he is from Philadelphia and dated Nicki Minaj in 2015.

But the claims about a “rapper (REDACTED)” only get worse when the lawsuit refers to Diddy and Stevie J's relationship.

We must add that both Diddy and Stevie J. vehemently deny that anything Jones says is true.

Jones claims in the lawsuit that Diddy groomed the former Bad Boy Records producer for sex and even includes a photo that allegedly shows Stevie J having sexual intercourse with another man.

The adult film star Knockout, however comment on a post on X has since claimed the alleged photo of Stevie J having sex was him in a video: “That's me smh.”

So what does this have to do with Meek Mill and Usher?

The lawsuit states: “Mr. Combs told Mr. Jones that he had had sexual intercourse with rapper (REDACTED), R&B singer (REDACTED) and Stevie J.”

The mysterious R&B singer is described as someone who performed at the Super Bowl and had a “successful stint in Las Vegas.”

We reached out to attorneys for Universal Music Group and Diddy for comment and did not receive a response.

Meek Mill and Usher's response to the speculation

While Usher hasn't addressed the speculation at all, Meek Mill went on a rant on social media Wednesday, attacking anyone who questioned his sexuality and claiming he wasn't involved in any illegal activity with Diddy.

He particularly directed his frustration at DJ Akademiks, who read the 73-page lawsuit in a clip shared on social media.

That one clip led Meek Mill to post countless posts on X targeting the controversial blogger.

He later addresses speculation that he has had sex with men and denies it, writing: “I'm from Philly, I don't drink Coke or Freaky Ass Molly… no one will even offer me Coke because I'm so heavy am..” No man or watt would ever approach me about gay activities and the whole place won't be turned around… I woke up and saw this on every blog like they knew I was coming! Lol.”

This led to a complete back and forth between Meek Mill and DJ Akademiks (which we won't get into here).
