NEW YORK (WABC) -- Sean "Diddy" Combs' former producer has come forward with explosive new allegations against the music mogul just days after federal agents raided his homes.

In an updated Manhattan federal lawsuit first filed in February, Diddy's former producer, Rodney Jones, says he was groped, threatened and witnessed sex trafficking.

It is also alleged in the lawsuit that Combs had employees like maids and butlers carry fanny packs to supply cocaine.

Jones said he lived with Diddy for almost a year to work on the project and it was during that time he witnessed the alleged criminal activity and was the victim of threats.

The complaint also connects embattled actor Cuba Gooding Jr. and rapper Yung Miami to the alleged wrongdoing.

The news comes just days after Homeland Security agents raided the music mogul's homes in Los Angeles and Miami.

Combs has not been charged with any crimes and is said to be cooperating with federal investigators.

After the federal raids this week, his attorney released the following statement:

"Yesterday, there was a gross overuse of military-level force as search warrants were executed at Mr. Combs' residences," Diddy's attorney Aaron Dyer said. "There is no excuse for the excessive show of force and hostility exhibited by authorities or the way his children and employees were treated. Mr. Combs was never detained but spoke to and cooperated with authorities. Despite media speculation, neither Mr. Combs nor any of his family members have been arrested nor has their ability to travel been restricted in any way. This unprecedented ambush -- paired with an advanced, coordinated media presence -- leads to a premature rush to judgment of Mr. Combs and is nothing more than a witch hunt based on meritless accusations made in civil lawsuits. There has been no finding of criminal or civil liability with any of these allegations. Mr. Combs is innocent and will continue to fight every single day to clear his name."
