According to several media outlets, Sean "Diddy" Combs' former girlfriend, Cassie, has sued "Diddy" for $30 million for years of sexual assault, physical assault, and other forms of abuse that she endured during their relationship. Page Six reports, "the "Me & U" singer — born Casandra Ventura — claimed that after she met the Revolt CEO in 2005 when she was only 19, he allegedly began a pattern of abuse and control that included allegedly forcing her to have sex with male prostitutes while he filmed, physically abusing her and supplying her with drugs." She also noted that his staff and associates observed the abuse during their on-again-off-again relationship for ten years. The model and singer also said Combs forced his way into her home and raped her for a final time in 2018. The former couple permanently parted ways the same year, shortly before she married celebrity trainer Alex Fine and had a child. They now have two children. Combs was responsible for the model's music career and fostered many opportunities for her in the entertainment industry.



The model released the following statement: "After years in silence and darkness. I am finally ready to tell my story and to speak up on behalf of myself and for the benefit of other women who face violence and abuse in their relationships," Cassie said in a statement to the New York Times. USA Today reports the following comments from the 37-year-old: "With the expiration of New York's Adult Survivors Act fast approaching, it became clear that this was an opportunity to speak up about the trauma I have experienced and that I will be recovering from for the rest of my life."


However, Diddy's legal team battles the claims, saying Cassie's lawsuit is a ploy to get money— her lifestyle has drastically changed without Combs’ financial support. Diddy's attorney, Ben Brafman, denied the accusations in a statement to Page Six, claiming Cassie had been demanding money from the Bad Boy Records founder. "Mr. Combs vehemently denies these offensive and outrageous allegations," the lawyer said. "For the past 6 months, Mr. Combs has been subjected to Ms. Ventura's persistent demand of $30 million, under the threat of writing a damaging book about their relationship, which was unequivocally rejected as blatant blackmail." His attorney also said “Despite withdrawing her initial threat, Ms. Ventura has now resorted to filing a lawsuit riddled with baseless and outrageous lies, aiming to tarnish Mr. Combs’s reputation and seeking a payday.”



Despite their 2018 breakup, Diddy continued speaking about his former girlfriend publicly. During an episode of Caresha Please, Diddy talked about not being ready to let go of Cassie despite her leaving the relationship and starting a family. Last year, he released the song "Gotta Move On," which was reportedly about his twin flame with the model. During the 2023 BET Awards, the music mogul once again publicly mentioned the mother of two, thanking her for her contribution to his life. His relationship with Cassie came amid his on-again, off-again relationship with Kim Porter, the mother of three of his children, whom he publicly acknowledged and continued to spend much time with while dating Cassie. Upon Kim's untimely passing in 2018, he regarded her as the love of his life.

Cassie’s attorney Douglas Wigdor, told Page Six that his client and Diddy spoke before she filed the lawsuit and the “Last Night” musician allegedly offered her money to remain silent. “Mr. Combs offered Ms. Ventura eight figures to silence her and prevent the filing of this lawsuit,” Wigdor said. “She rejected his efforts.”
