Snoop Dogg is being sued for alleged sexual assault by a woman who claims the rapper forced her to perform oral sex in 2013.

On Wednesday (9 February), a lawsuit was filed against the rapper in federal court by an anonymous woman using the name Jane Doe.

The accuser, who allegedly worked as a model and danced on stage with Snoop, claims she was sexually assaulted by the rapper and his associate Don “Magic” Juan nearly nine years ago on 29 May 2013.

According to legal documents, she claims she was forced to perform oral sex on Juan after accepting a lift from him and ending up in his home against her wishes.

The woman alleges that Juan then demanded she go with him to the recording studio where he’d been filming Snoop Dogg’s Double G News Network. She says that she was told she might be given a spot on the show and went “in hopes of advancing her career”.

However, once there, Snoop allegedly followed her to the bathroom where he shut her in and forced her to perform oral sex before masturbating in front of her.

The lawsuit states that Doe was left “humiliated, terrified and panicked” in the bathroom.

She also claims that Snoop wouldn’t hire her because she “refused to willingly and enthusiastically give oral sex”.

In a statement shared with The Independent, Snoop’s lawyers said that the allegations were “simply meritless” and “appeared to be part of a self-enrichment shakedown scheme” before the Super Bowl.

They said that the plaintiff had “manufactured an occurrence of more than 8 years ago, in 2013, for her false allegations”, adding: “They are similar to what she filed using her own name as the plaintiff in December 2021 with the California Department of Fair Employment and Housing.”

They then claimed that the rapper “has never has had any sexual encounter whatsoever” with his accuser.

“Her attempt to use the courts to advance this scheme is shameful too, and does a disservice to real victims who deserve to be believed,” they said.

The Independent was unable to reach Juan for comment.
