After the Oscars last February, P Diddy was involved in a alleged beat down. Although four seperate witnesses have came forward to say he did it, no charges were ever filed against P Diddy. The witnesses alleged Diddy hit Gerard Rechnitzer and now Rechnitzer is sueing P Diddy in civil court. Rechnitzer says Diddy hit him outside the Roosevelt Hotel. "I just kind of remember seeing [Rechnitzer] go flying, not flying as in like feet off the ground, but he went back significantly," on witness, Marianna Ruiz, said in her deposition. "I was just in shock that somebody would … just kind of strike somebody out of nowhere."
Another witness, Michael Sherman said, "All of a sudden, [Diddy] hit him. And there was a taxi behind Gerard. Gerard got knocked into the taxi." Diddy's lawyer stated "is no way legally responsible for what happened to Rechnitzer" and called the suit "completely baseless," while prosecutors also declined to press charges against the mogul. Rechnitzer is seeking unspecified damages in the suit.
