Diddy

'Making the Band' Lawsuit

Is a Real Pain in the Abs

12/27/2011 12:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

DiddyA guy who claims he got hit in the stomach with a microphone during the taping of an episode "Making the Band" back in 2008 is suing Diddy, MTV, and everyone involved with the event that day ... and we mean EVERYONE.

Kevin Faraday claims he was in the crowd at the Hammerstein Ballroom that day when a guy ran on stage between acts, grabbed the mic, and (somehow) hit him in the abdomen with it.

Faraday is suing ... (deep breath) ... Diddy, MTV, Danity Kane, Day26, Donnie Klang, Cheri Dennis, "Making the Band," Bad Boy Touring, Bad Boy Entertainment, Bad Boy FIlms, Live Nation Touring, Live Nation Family Entertainment, Manhattan Center Studio, Manhattan Center New Yorker Group, The Holy Spirit Association for the Unification of World Christianity, Strike Force Protective Services, John Doe and Jane Doe ... and he's seeking unspecified damages.

We reached out to MTV and Diddy for comment ... haven't heard back.
