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.".

Mad Balls    

Leave it to this poor excuse for a rapper to inspire great debate on racial affairs in our nation and abroad . P-diddy is not talented or not a fun guy to be around . He does think he is gods' gift to woman . He can't sing or dance . I sure as hell would'nt go to his overpriced , underproduced partys loaded with local chicks trying to get laid by his millionare ass . If you want to blow about 200 to 1,000 dollars at one of his parties ... I suggest giving that money to the poor in Africa or donate it to the red cross . It'll do alot' more good than suporting this selfish overblown asswipe .

Nope, ALL the money from the catalog is GOING TO PAY OFF DEBTS. Are you too stupid to understand simple English?? Wait, don't answer that. He'll have next to nothing left. Broke baby!!

You still can't answer the Zimbabwe question can you? You can dance around it all you want. The country was RICH with resources when the blacks took over. It is now in a STATE OF COLLAPSE. THEY RUINED IT. Why did this happen?? Perfect example of why, no matter whether whites are the majority or the minority, we will always rule YOU.
