Cassie Alleges Decade-Long Abuse and Rape by Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs in Lawsuit”

R&B singer Cassie, born Casandra Ventura, has filed a lawsuit accusing music mogul Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs of subjecting her to a years-long abusive relationship, including beatings and rape.

The suit, filed in New York federal court, claims Combs initiated the abuse when she was 19 and he was 37, introducing her to a fast-paced and drug-fueled lifestyle. Combs vehemently denies the allegations, calling them lies and part of a $30 million extortion attempt.

Cassie’s lawyer, Douglas Wigdor, states that Combs offered her eight figures to remain silent. The influential hip-hop figure and Cassie had an on-and-off relationship for over a decade.

Combs, a three-time Grammy winner and founder of Bad Boy Records, has worked with numerous top-tier artists and expanded his empire with ventures like Sean John clothing and Revolt TV.

The lawsuit references a 2022 BET Awards speech where Combs thanked Cassie for “holding me down in the dark times,” alleging a stark contrast to the reality of her enduring years of violent behavior.

As the legal battle unfolds, the industry watches closely, recognizing the potential impact on Combs’ legacy and the broader conversation around abuse in high-profile relationships. (Credit: France 24)
