Warning: This article contains descriptions of alleged sexual assault.
A woman who is claiming that Snoop Dogg forced her to perform oral sex on him in 2013 has filed a lawsuit against the rapper, TMZ reports. The unidentified woman said the alleged incident occurred after she attended a Snoop Dogg show in Anaheim, California on May 29, 2013.
The woman, who is a model and dancer, said she was offered a ride home by Snoop’s friend Bishop Don “Magic” Juan but was instead driven to his house after falling asleep in his car. After dozing off again while at his home, the woman alleged that Don Juan “removed his penis from his pants and forced his penis in Plaintiff’s face” and “repeatedly shoved his penis into Plaintiff’s mouth.”
She then claimed that Don Juan gave her a dress and told her that they should go and meet up with Snoop to see about getting her a part in a television show that the From tha Streets 2 tha Suites artist was working on. After arriving at Snoop’s, the woman said she was feeling ill and went to the bathroom. She said it was then that the rapper came into the bathroom and forced her to perform oral sex on him “while Plaintiff was defecating on the toilet.” The woman said she didn’t end up getting the TV role because Snoop didn’t like that she “refused to willingly and enthusiastically give oral sex.”
Per TMZ, Snoop has denied the story and referenced the woman in a post he made to Instagram about “gold digger season.” Meanwhile, Wednesday’s report also says that a “source representing” Snoop has questioned the timing of the suit, which arrives mere days ahead of this weekend’s Super Bowl festivities, where Snoop will be involved as a performer.
A source is also said to have told the publication that the woman asked for close to $10 million, a request that was ultimately turned down. She is suing both Snoop and Bishop Don Juan for unspecified damages.
Snoop, real name Calvin Cordozar Broadus Jr., was also sued for sexual assault in 2005 after makeup artist Kylie Bell claimed she was drugged and assaulted by the rapper and other men following a taping of Jimmy Kimmel Live! in 2003, MTV News reported at the time. The rapper denied Bell’s claims and accused the woman of attempting to extort him for $5 million, with the suit ultimately being dropped.
A separate report from Rolling Stone, published Thursday, states that the accuser has said that the alleged assaults in question took place following a 2013 Snoop show at Club Heat Ultra Lounge. Also clarified in that report is that the Snoop-focused TV project mentioned in the suit was Snoop Dogg’s Double G News Network. The woman has alleged that Snoop was considering making her the “weather girl” for that project.
Also given more attention in the RS report is the “gold digger” comment on Instagram, with an attorney for the accuser arguing that the post—which is allegedly a reference to unsuccessful mediation—was “obviously threatening.”
Complex has reached out to a rep for Snoop for comment and will update this post accordingly.
News of the sexual assault lawsuit arrived amid coverage of Snoop Dogg having acquired Death Row Records from MNRK Music Group. This weekend, as mentioned above, Snoop is set to perform at the Pepsi Super Bowl LVI Halftime Show alongside Dr. Dre, Kendrick Lamar, Mary J. Blige, and Eminem. Ahead of the performance, Snoop was featured in an F. Gary Gray-directed narrative trailer.
