P. Diddy: "I'll Smack Flames Out of Your Ass"

3/5/2007 5:02 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Diddy Lawsuit -- Click to ViewSean "Puffy" Combs has been sued by a man who claims the music mogul "unlawfully attacked, assaulted and battered" him during a post-Oscar party.

In a lawsuit, filed March 2 in Los Angeles County Superior Court, Gerald Rechnitzer claims he was at Teddy's nightclub at the Roosevelt Hotel in Hollywood with his girlfriend after the Academy Awards. Rechnitzer says that as he was leaving, he stopped in the restroom. When he came out, he saw that his girlfriend was speaking with Combs, who was surrounded by his private security detail.

The suit claims "Combs, also known as 'Diddy,' also known as 'P. Diddy,' also known as 'Puff Daddy,' also known as 'Puffy,' hereinafter Defendant Combs," suddenly said to the Plaintiff, "What the f**k you looking at dude?'" Combs then allegedly followed up by yelling, "I'll smack flames out of your ass!"

The suit claims Combs then attacked Rechnitzer. His lawyer tells TMZ Combs punched his client in the jaw, causing him to fly backwards. The suit claims, "At no time was Plaintiff, who is five feet, seven inches tall with a slim build, ever a threat to Defendant...."

The suit alleges "after attacking Plaintiff, Defendant Combs intentionally, willfully and knowingly pushed Plaintiff's girlfriend and attempted to spit on another female member of Plaintiff's group."

The lawsuit seeks unspecified compensatory and punitive damages.

The LAPD tells TMZ they are investigating the allegations against Combs.

A rep for Combs tells TMZ "These claims are completely false and ridiculous. It is pitiful that Mr. Rechnitzer is stooping so low to prey on Mr. Combs celebrity. Mr. Combs will not stand for such ludicrous accusations.".

What a wimp Puffy must be.... smacking a little guy around like that while surrounded by his bodyguards.

I guess he is hoping to improve his 'street cred'. What a joke.

TRUE DIDDY /PUFF DADDY/WHATEVER IS RUDE & THINKS HE OWNS THE WORLD --
MANY CELEBRITIES ARE LIKE HIM BECAUSE THEY THINK THEY ARE GODS AND WE WORSHIP THEM---NOT! Did any consider he should be sued for spitting on someone --
keep in mind many celebrities especially males tend to sleep around, have sex parties,/
orgies, are bisexual,etc. ----so for any of them to spit on someone should be considered a health hazard to the general public. This is what happens when celebrities are overpaid.

Whatever    

This bozo thug-wanna be needs to park his ass at home with his babies. He wouldn't be such a bad ass if he couldn't afford huge security guards.

Diddy is just a pretentious, poor man's Jay Z. He seems like the cowardly kind of person who acts tough when they're with their friends but if you catch them alone in the hall coming toward you they turn the corner and away from you like a little b**ch.

He's just mad because he used to matter (slightly) but Bad Boy got slapped around by every other label and now he's even less relevant than Mase.
