“Diddy” Combs assaulting Cassandra!


Washington, May 17 (EFE).-

A surveillance video obtained by CNN and shared on Friday shows rapper Sean “Diddy” Combs assaulting his then-partner, R&B singer Casandra Ventura, in a hallway of a Los Angeles hotel in March 2016.

The artist known as Cassie sued Combs, with whom she was in a relationship between 2007 and 2018, accused him of physical violence and sexual abuse, alleging he raped and beat her over a decade. The two reached a monetary settlement a few days after the lawsuit was filed.

The lawsuit also claimed that Combs used his influence to control Ventura, whom he met when she was 19 years old and he was 37.

The newly released footage dates back to Mar. 5, 2016, and shows the rapper and producer (with a towel wrapped around his waist) running after Ventura in a hallway of the InterContinental Hotel in Century City, California.

When he catches her, he grabs her by the neck, throws her to the ground, and begins to kick her while she remains still. When the woman tries to use a wall phone in the hallway, Combs pushes her again and throws an object towards her.

At the end of 2023, the founder of Bad Boy Records was sued on four other occasions for alleged rape, the latest (filed on Dec. 6) claiming that the rapper drugged a minor at his studio in New York City and then raped her.

Combs denied the accusations against him, stating in a post on Instagram last December that the plaintiffs were attempting to defame him, destroy his reputation, and tarnish his legacy.

“The gut-wrenching video has only further confirmed the disturbing and predatory behavior of Mr. Combs,” Ventura’s lawyer, Douglas H. Wigdor, said in a statement to CNN.

In addition, Homeland Security Investigations agents raided mansions in Los Angeles and Miami associated with “Diddy” Combs and his production company last March as part of a federal investigation related to human trafficking, according to US media reports. EFE
