LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA: Days before Homeland Security officials barraged Sean "Diddy" Combs' Los Angeles and Miami houses, he received legal paperwork pertaining to one of several lawsuits brought against him. 

According to records obtained by Radar Online, a process server showed up at the troubled music mogul's $40 million Beverly Hills estate on March 19 to deliver documents related to Liza Gardner's lawsuit to a person who refused to divulge his identity.

The 54-year-old music tycoon has been facing a litany of sexual assault lawsuits since November 2023, alleging abuse, rape, among other major offenses. Diddy has, however, refuted every accusation.

Sean 'Diddy' Combs 'served a true copy of a summons' at Beverly Hills mansion

According to the process server, they "served a true copy of a SUMMONS, FIRST AMENDED COMPLAINT, ATTORNEY VERIFICATION upon SEAN COMBS" at his Beverly Hills residence at 1.50 pm on March 19. 

They said that they left the documents with a "John Doe," adding that the individual "refused to provide" their name but "is known to be the RESIDENT" and that they are more than 14 years old.

The individual in question was identified by the process server as a 35-year-old Black male with brown eyes and black hair who stands at a height of 6 ft 1 in (185 cm).

A separate process server revealed that they mailed Diddy a copy of the documents and had it delivered to his Beverly Hills address alongside serving him with the paperwork at the same house that was searched by federal officials a few days later. 

The document read, "On 03/20/2024 at 2:00 PM, I deposited in the United States mail another true copy of aforementioned documents properly enclosed and sealed in a post-paid wrapper addressed upon SEAN COMBS."

It added, "The envelope was marked 'personal and confidential' and not indicating on the outside thereof, by return address or otherwise, that the communication is from an attorney or concerns an action against the person to be served."

Liza Gardner's alleged Diddy sexually assaulted her when she was a teen

Gardner alleged Diddy and his friend Aaron Hall had sexually assaulted her in the 1990s when she was a teenager. She is one of the four purported victims who have brought lawsuits against the Bad Boy Records mogul. 

Gardner, who was referred to as Jane Doe in the court documents, alleged to have met the men at an event hosted by Uptown Records distributor MCA Records.

As per the lawsuit, later while in Hall’s apartment, Gardner "laid in bed, shocked and traumatized" after she "was coerced into having sex with Combs," as per PEOPLE Magazine. She further alleged, "As she was in the process of getting dressed, Hall barged into the room, pinned her down, and forced Jane Doe to have sex with him."

The complaint also added that days after the alleged sexual assault, Diddy choked her "to the point that she passed out."

After the lawsuit was filed, one of Diddy's spokespersons asserted that it was "nothing but a money grab" and claimed Gardner's claims were "fabricated."

Diddy's ex-girlfriend Casandra "Cassie" Ventura was the first to sue the rapper, alleging that during their ten-year romance, he battered, sexually assaulted, and sex trafficked her.

Soon after they reached a settlement, noting that the terms of the agreement won't be released publicly. 

Diddy's former videographer and producer, Rodney "Lil Rod" Jone, also filed a lawsuit alleging that for more than a year the rapper sexually harassed, drugged, and threatened him.
