Puffy Sued Over 'Infested' Beverly Hills Home

Spokesperson for rapper/mogul calls lawsuit 'completely frivolous.'

Another day, another legal woe for Sean "Puffy" Combs.

A lawsuit reportedly filed against the hip-hop mogul on Thursday in the U.S. District Court of Los Angeles claims a Beverly Hills home he was renting out for $25,000 a month was "infested with insects, rodents and vermin."

Inge Bongo alleges that a broken front door lock forced her to use a dog door to come and go, according to the Associated Press. She also claims to have received death threats addressed to Combs and a message warning the rapper to stay away from girlfriend Jennifer Lopez.

The lawsuit seeks unspecified damages.

Nathalie Moar, a spokesperson for Combs, told AP the lawsuit was "completely frivolous," and that, "if anyone had a right to sue, it was Mr. Combs."

Moar said Bongo owes Combs $50,000 in back rent and about $40,000 in damage she caused to the home. Bongo said she moved into the home after signing a year lease in November 1999 but moved out last August because of the horrible living conditions.

Combs is on trial in New York on charges of gun possession and bribery stemming from a December 26, 1999, shooting at Club New York in which three people were injured (see "Next Week's Witnesses To Claim Puffy Fired Gun,

Bribed Driver").

Last month, a talent agency claiming to have discovered Dream, the hit teen singers on Puffy's Bad Boy Records, filed a lawsuit against Combs in Los Angeles Superior Court for unfair competition (see "Talent Agency Sues Puff

Daddy Over Dream").
