Singer Casandra Ventura, also known as Cassie, has reached a settlement with Sean “Diddy” Combs just one day after filing a lawsuit against him in New York. The lawsuit accused Combs of rape and physical abuse during their relationship. Cassie’s attorney confirmed the settlement in a statement, expressing Cassie’s desire to resolve the matter amicably. Combs also released a statement, wishing Cassie and her family all the best. The terms of the settlement were not disclosed.
In the lawsuit, Cassie described Combs as a “vicious, cruel, and controlling man” who exerted complete control over her personal and professional life. The complaint detailed the abusive behavior allegedly inflicted on Cassie by Combs throughout their on-and-off relationship, which lasted from 2007 to 2018. Cassie had previously kept silent about the abuse but felt compelled to come forward before the expiration of New York’s Adult Survivors Act.
Among the allegations in the lawsuit, Cassie claimed that Combs raped her in her home when she tried to leave him. She also accused him of physically assaulting her, causing bruises, burst lips, black eyes, and bleeding. Additionally, the lawsuit claimed that Combs blew up rapper Kid Cudi’s car in 2012 after discovering Kid Cudi’s romantic interest in Cassie.
Combs has denied all the allegations, and his lawyer stated that Cassie attempted to blackmail him for $30 million. According to Combs’ lawyer, Cassie’s persistent demand for $30 million and the threat of writing a damaging book about their relationship were blatant blackmail. Combs vehemently denied these allegations.
Both parties have now decided to settle the lawsuit amicably. The statements from Cassie and Combs express their wishes for each other’s well-being, but the details of the settlement remain undisclosed.
