P.Diddy Sued for Discrimination

P. Diddy has found himself in hot water after letting an "old and disabled" employee go from his Bad Boy firm.

51 year old Francesca Spero is suing Diddy for $12 million, alleging she was sacked for being old and disabled, after she was laid up with hip surgery in 2008.

According to Francesca, Diddy was “unsympathetic to her condition” and tried to push her out of the company.

In March 2010, she was fired and replaced by a woman much younger who "lacked the skill set and experience Spero brought to the position." So what's a girl to do? Sue sue sue!

Her lawyer Laurie Berke-Weiss said: "Francesca Spero opened the door for Combs' career and, now that she's 51, he showed her the door at Bad Boy."

In his defense he says she earned too much money for "someone who could no longer keep up with his fast-paced lifestyle" and fired her.

Spero also admitted to checking herself into a substance abuse treatment facility in December 2008 after problems with prescription painkillers and alcohol. However, she insisted she had been clean and sober from 1987 until two years ago after being treated for opiate addiction.

Sounds like a messy situation. And Diddy doesn't like a mess. We're willing to bet he's just going to throw a bunch of money at the situation and make it go away as fast as possible.
