In a new lawsuit that surfaced on Thursday, singer Cassie has accused Sean “Diddy” Combs of rape and physical abuse.
The singer of “Me & U,” whose real name is Casandra Ventura, disclosed that she was just 19 when she first met the CEO of Revolt in 2005. Diddy allegedly started a pattern of physical abuse and control, which included forcing her to have sex with male prostitutes while filming them, beating her physically, and force-feeding her narcotics.
In the lawsuit, Cassie also claimed that Diddy, whose real name is Sean Combs, broke into her house and sexually assaulted her in the latter months of their partnership in 2018.
Diddy, 54, “was prone to uncontrollable rage, and frequently beat Ms. Ventura savagely,” the lawsuit claimed.
His staff and employees allegedly observed the “beatings” a number of times, but none “dared to speak up against their frightening and ferocious boss,” the lawsuit continued.
Cassie also claimed that the record producer and rapper of “Gotta Move On” made her keep his gun in her purse as a reminder of “his ability to cause serious harm.”
“Over the years that Mr. Combs abused Ms. Ventura physically and sexually, she again and again tried to escape his tight hold over her life,” the lawsuit added. “Every time she hid, Mr. Combs’s vast network of corporations and affiliated entities found her, and those who worked for Mr. Combs’s companies implored her to return to him.
“Many went as far as to explicitly state that her failure to return to Mr. Combs would hinder her success in the entertainment industry.”
Cassie detailed a specific incident from back in 2018 when she had joined him for dinner “for what she believed would be a discussion about concluding their relationship for good.”
However, when they both got back to her house, which Diddy paid for, she said, he “forced himself into her apartment” and attempted to kiss her.
“She told him to stop and attempted to push him away,” the lawsuit read. “Mr. Combs then forcibly pulled off Ms. Ventura’s clothing and unbuckled his belt. He proceeded to rape Ms. Ventura while she repeatedly said ‘no’ and tried to push him away.”
“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… 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,” she told journalists.
Before ending their relationship permanently in 2018, Cassie and Diddy had dated for ten years, on and off.
The next year, she married fitness trainer Alex Fine. Together, the couple has two kids. Meanwhile, Diddy is currently dating the rapper “Yung Miami” of the hip-hop group City Girls.
