Cassie, the “Me & U” singer, has filed a lawsuit against hip-hop mogul Diddy, making grave accusations of rape and repeated physical abuse throughout their relationship.
According to court documents obtained by Page Six, Cassie, whose real name is Casandra Ventura, alleged that her nightmare began when she met Diddy in 2005 at the tender age of 19. She claimed that he subjected her to a harrowing pattern of abuse and control. Among the disturbing allegations, Cassie accused Diddy of forcing her into sexual encounters with male prostitutes while filming the acts, physically abusing her, and supplying her with drugs.
The lawsuit also takes an even darker turn, with Cassie alleging that Diddy forcibly entered her home and raped her towards the end of their long-term relationship in 2018.
In the court documents, Cassie described Diddy as “prone to uncontrollable rage” and claimed that he “frequently beat Ms. Ventura savagely.” Shockingly, she asserted that these beatings often occurred in the presence of Diddy’s staff and employees, who were too terrified to speak out against their powerful boss.
Furthermore, Cassie alleged that Diddy compelled her to carry his firearm in her purse, adding another layer of fear and control to their relationship.
In a courageous statement to the New York Times, Cassie said, “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.”
Diddy’s attorney, Ben Brafman, strongly denied these allegations in a statement, accusing Cassie of seeking money from the Bad Boy Records founder. Brafman stated, “Mr. Combs vehemently denies these offensive and outrageous allegations. For the past six 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.”
However, Cassie’s lawyer, Douglas Wigdor, countered these claims, revealing that Cassie and Diddy had engaged in discussions before the lawsuit. Wigdor alleged that Diddy had offered Cassie a substantial sum 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.”
This story is still developing, and the world is watching closely as these explosive allegations continue to unfold.
