Amidst the tumultuous lawsuit filed by Cassie against her ex-boyfriend Sean “Diddy” Combs, shocking details have emerged, including an alleged threat to blow up Kid Cudi’s car.
According to court documents obtained by The New York Times, Cassie claimed that Diddy became “so angry” when he discovered her dating Kid Cudi in 2012 that he made this terrifying threat. Notably, Cudi’s spokesperson confirmed the accuracy of Cassie’s account.
Cassie and Diddy had a rollercoaster relationship, dating off and on since 2007. In one of the breaks from her relationship with Diddy, Cassie sparked a romance with Kid Cudi in April 2012. Their love story had its ups and downs, and Cassie and Diddy finally split for good in 2018.
This lawsuit brings to light a series of serious allegations, with Cassie accusing Diddy of rape and repeated physical abuse that spanned nearly a decade. In a courageous statement, she declared, “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’s attorney, Douglas Wigdor, revealed that they had engaged in discussions with Diddy before filing the lawsuit. According to Wigdor, Diddy allegedly offered Cassie “eight figures” to keep quiet, but she refused this supposed payoff.
Diddy, on the other hand, vehemently denied Cassie’s allegations through a statement from his attorney, Ben Brafman. He characterized her claims as “offensive and outrageous” and accused her of seeking a $30 million payout under the threat of writing a damaging book about their relationship. Brafman labeled it as “blatant blackmail” and stated that despite Cassie withdrawing her initial threat, she had now filed a lawsuit filled with “baseless and outrageous lies” to tarnish Diddy’s reputation and secure a payday.
Both Cassie and Diddy have moved on with their lives since their tumultuous relationship. Cassie married personal trainer Alex Fine in September 2019, and they share two daughters. Diddy, on the other hand, is a father of seven children.
