ddy Sued for Age Discrimination After Firing 51-Year-Old


A New York woman has sued rapper-producer Sean “Diddy” Combs, 40, saying he fired her because of her age two decades after she helped launch his career.

Fifty-one-year-old Francesca Spero filed the age discrimination lawsuit Wednesday in federal court in Manhattan.

The lawsuit says the Malverne resident introduced Combs to hip-hop mogul Russell Simmons and Uptown Records after meeting Combs in 1988. It says she worked at Combs’ Bad Boy Entertainment record label as an executive for 12 years before being fired in March.

The lawsuit says Spero was fired after having hip surgery and confiding to an executive that she was treated for a drug dependency relapse.

A publicist for Combs says “there are many reasons why Ms. Spero is no longer employed by Bad Boy, but age discrimination is not one of them.”
