A woman who claims she used to work for Snoop Dogg and his associate Bishop Don "Magic" Juan as an onstage dancer is now suing the pair over accusations that they sexually assaulted her in 2013. According to Rolling Stone, in a lawsuit filed in federal court in Los Angeles Wednesday, the woman—identified only as "Jane Doe"—said her alleged assaults by the men occurred after she and a friend attended a Snoop Dogg concert at Club Heat Ultra Lounge in Anaheim, California on May 29, 2013. There, Doe said, she ran into Juan—whose real name is Donald Campbell—and ended up hanging out with him and the rapper at Snoop Dogg’s studio.

Doe claims she asked Campbell to drop her off at home, reports VICE. However, she fell asleep in the car and woke up at Campbell's residence against her wishes. At the residence, she claims he assaulted her when he "removed his penis from his pants" and "repeatedly shoved his penis into (her) mouth." Afterward, the unidentified accuser says in the lawsuit, Campbell demanded that she accompany him to a recording studio where Snoop Dogg was purportedly filming his TV series, Snoop Dogg's Double G News Network.

According to the complaint, Campbell told her, "I want to see if he will make you the weather girl." She complied "in hopes of advancing her career," the filing further states. The Jane Doe plaintiff says she felt sick and was using a bathroom at the studio when Snoop Dogg entered the room unexpectedly. He shut the door, grabbed her shoulder and ordered the woman to put his penis in her mouth, the complaint states. "After a few minutes, defendant Snoop Dogg withdrew his penis from plaintiff's mouth, visibly unsatisfied with plaintiff's reluctance and disgust of being forced to engage in oral sex," it alleges.

The rapper then allegedly "proceeded to masturbate and ejaculated on plaintiff's upper chest and lower neck" and purportedly said, "I'll get you something to clean up with" before leaving the accuser "humiliated, terrified and panicked" in the bathroom without returning. The lawsuit states that Doe "has suffered anxiety, stress, depression, nightmares, sleep disturbances, post-traumatic stress, headaches, severe emotional distress and physical ailments" since the alleged assaults. The woman claims she didn't report the alleged assaults at the time out of fear for "her job security if she displeased" the rapper. She reportedly worked for various companies owned by or associated with Snoop Dogg for several years. As per the complaint, Doe obtained a right to sue from the Department of Fair Employment and Housing on December 20, 2021, and agreed to "attempt to resolve this dispute through a private mediation" that took place on February 8, 2022.

However, the "mediation was unsuccessful," the filing states, and "immediately after the mediation ended," the rapper posted an image on Instagram that read "Gold digger" alongside emojis of a judge and a police officer. The complaint describes the post as "obviously threatening" against the Jane Doe plaintiff. Meanwhile, a source representing Snoop Dogg told TMZ that the accuser intentionally filed her lawsuit ahead of this weekend's Super Bowl as the rapper is scheduled to perform at the halftime show.

This isn’t the first time the Drop It Like It's Hot rapper has been accused of assault. Back in 2005, he was sued by makeup artist Kylie Bell, who alleged the rapper and members of his entourage sexually assaulted her in 2003. Shortly before filing her complaint, Bell was sued by Snoop—born Calvin Broadus—for extortion. She later dropped her lawsuit, explaining in a statement that "the matter has been resolved amicably."
