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.".

If this story is true, Sean Combs should be ashamed, embarassed, and disgusted with his behavior. His is too too old to go around acting foolish. Just because you have money does not give yuo the right to disrespect and degrade people.

To all of you people throwing out your racist comments. Do you think that when life ends and we are all judged on our deeds God is going to separate us into the Blacks, Hispanics, Asians and whites??? No he will not we will be separated into the saved and the unsaved!! You strip away the skin and the whites nor the blocks have any extra organs....we're all humans placed on this earth by God to test our ability to have a love for all mankind irrespective of race, or ethnic background.

OK, Let's track this idiots principles for a moment. He is a known fellon (gun carring ghetto huckster), He was involved in a shooting, he allows his 12 year old to get a lap dance, and does it surprise me he would be involved in a rukus at a bar. Combs does what he wants when he wants.

Don't give me this crap he has respect or integrity. The guy is a joker and needs to go the way of the neanderthal.

What the hell is this loser famous for? Being a thug, just like all the others?
He'll be just another MC Hammer in a year or two. What's that old expression? Something that starts with an "n" rich? So true.

Standards are badly needed.    

to PrettyX2 #61 - No, it does not eat at me that Diddy is young, black, and wealthy, What eats at me and should eat at you too is a big shot with bodygaurds throwing his weight around and bullying / assaulting a skinny guy and his girlfriend while she waits outside a rest room, when he has brand new babies at home. If Diddy is college educated, then he needs to use what he learned. If he is your American Dream, then your thinking needs readjusting, as does his. He behaved like a bad act.

I do not believe this sh** at all! Black people DON'T say " I will smack the flames out of your ass", instead we may say "I'll knock da sh** out cha a**" and we do not say dude! Maybe just a simple "what da f*** u looking at" Sorry but this guy rechnitzer or whatever needs to fall back, get your own money, he stated himself that his girlfriend was talking to Combs when he came out the restroom, so he just looking for something to get back at Combs.

On one end of the spectrum you have Will Smith- a class act all the way, who deserves everything he has. And then you have Combs, which proves money can't buy class quite clearly. And what the hell is this guy's "talent" exactly?
