Diddy Settles Party Punch-Out Lawsuit

3/24/2008 7:09 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Sean Combs has settled a lawsuit brought by a man who said the rap impresario punched him at a 2007 Oscar party.

In the lawsuit filed last year, Gerard Rechnitzer says he and his girlfriend were leaving an event at Teddy's at the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel around 2:00 AM when Combs punched him without warning while the rapper was talking to his girlfriend.

The suit also alleged that Combs pushed Rechnitzer's girlfriend and tried to spit on another woman in the parking lot. As he left, Rechnitzer says Combs climbed halfway out of a car window and stared him down.

Combs' lawyers filed a document in Los Angeles on Friday indicating the case had settled, but the terms were not disclosed.

you know, really, do we need the racial comments & slurs ?

at least be creative about it or humorous;

just flat out common calls show ignorance.

in PUFF the magic dragon's case, he bought off a real estate guy,
paid legal fees and proved his STILL form the ghetto.

it's when the thug side gets a whole lot greener,
people tend to think they're above the law.

at least this little episode more
than likely cost him over $50 grand.

in his eyes it was probably worth it.

all in all, the guy who got punched, the girl wasn't worth

fighting over is gone and P. DIPSTICK has already

punk another dude like this again somewhere else.

The case was settled. Somebody got smacked in the wallet, and will control themselves around someone else's girlfriend next time.

#13 I don't agree with you, because this is at least the third "next time" for Combs. He might have a pending assault matter back East, if I recall correctly.

Kim Porter should've learned when he left her and her child for J.Lo. Instead she gave him yet another chance. D-uh.

I admire how he created a name for himself and became a powerful mogul, but it's way past time to grow up already.

Is Sean John his real name? Was his mama so stupid that she didn't know that Sean is the same name as John? Or was she just babbling when she named him?
