LOS ANGELES (CNS) - Complying with a judge's order, a former nanny for Sean ``Diddy'' Combs who is suing the singer regarding her 2021 firing identifies herself by her real name in an amended complaint rather than through the ``Jane Roe'' moniker she previously used.

The plaintiff, Raven Wales-Walden, filed the revised complaint Tuesday with Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Maureen Duffy-Lewis. The judge ruled during a March 22 hearing that the woman had basically revealed who she is in a state Department of Fair Employment and Housing document as well as through the ``extremely detailed'' information in her papers, so she could no longer use the ``Jane Roe'' identification in her court papers. Wales-Walden maintained she was entitled to go by ``Jane Roe'' in order to protect her privacy and that of her children.

In a separate ruling that same day, the judge said plaintiff's facts in support of her request for punitive damages were vague and needed shoring up in a revised complaint. Wales-Walden originally sued Diddy, Combs Enterprises LLC and three other companies Sept. 27, alleging pregnancy discrimination, violation of the pregnancy disability law, retaliation and various state Labor Code violations. The amended complaint states that Wales-Walden's bid for punitive damages are anchored in the alleged choices by Diddy and the other defendants to deny Wales-Walden pregnancy leave and to retaliate by firing her because she was unmarried and expecting. Those decisions were made with ``malice, fraud and/or oppression,'' justifying the plaintiff's claim for punitive damages, the amended complaint states.

Wales-Walden was a ``niece-like figure'' to the late Kim Porter, Diddy's former romantic partner and the mother of his twin daughters, the amended suit states. Wales-Walden was hired as Porter's personal assistant in September 2018 and helped Porter with creative projects in addition to helping her nanny at the time with the care of Porter's daughters, the amended suit states.  A day after Porter died in November 2018 of pneumonia at age 47, Diddy personally asked Wales-Walden to live at his estate and be a full-time nanny to the then-11-year-old twins, D'Lila and Jessie, an offer the plaintiff agreed to in honor of Porter, with whom she was extremely close, the revised complaint further states. Diddy fired Wales-Walden in January 2021 ``because she was pregnant and unmarried, which purportedly set a bad example for (Diddy's) daughters,'' the amended suit states.
