*Sean “Diddy” Combs is facing a lawsuit from a concert-goer who claims he was hit in the stomach with a microphone during a 2008 taping of his former MTV reality show “Making The Band.”
Kevin Faraday has filed suit claiming he was in the audience at the Hammerstein Ballroom in New York during filming and alleging he was injured by a man who ran onstage in between the performances, according to TMZ.com.
The website reports Faraday has named Diddy in the legal papers along with his Bad Boy Entertainment company and Danity Kane, the band that formed on the show.
Faraday is reportedly seeking unspecified damages.
*Former Danity Kane lead vocalist Aubrey O’Day returns to reality TV in a new series for the women’s cable channel Oxygen.
O’Day was discovered in 2004 as part of Sean “Diddy” Combs’ MTV’s series “Making the Band.” Diddy famously fired O’Day during an episode of the show two years ago.
Now, Oxygen’s “The Aubrey O’Day Project” will chronicle her attempt to make a comeback in the music industry while working with a demanding team of industry professionals.
Since leaving Danity Kane, O’Day has appeared in musicals on Broadway and in Las Vegas. No airdate or episode count has been announced, reports Billboard.
Oxygen continues to expand its reality efforts, last week picking up Season 2 of “Bad Girls Club” spinoff “Love Games,” which became the network’s most-watched freshman season of a series among its target 18-34 demographic.
