Casandra Ventura filed a complaint against the rapper
Cassandra Ventura, known by her stage name Cassie, filed a complaint against Sean Combs, alleging that she was the victim of rape and physical abuse for ten years, starting at age 19. Cassie, now 37, says she was caught in a cycle of abuse and violence until 2018, when they ended their relationship. Court documents mention that the rapper manipulated Cassie through intimidation, drugs and alcohol, leading her to the point of "dangerous addictions that controlled her life."

Cassie released a statement addressing the silence and darkness of her past, saying she is now ready to tell her story. She plans to speak up for herself and other women who experience violence and abuse in their relationships. The artist says she was subjected to "serial domestic violence" which left her with visible injuries and regular bleeding.
Sean Combs' lawyer Benjamin Brafman categorically denied the allegations, calling them "offensive and outrageous." Brafman claims Ventura demanded $30 million under threat of writing a damaging book about their relationship. In response, Cassie Ventura's lawyer Doug Vigdor refutes the claim, revealing that Diddy made her an eight-figure offer to keep her quiet, but the offer was rejected as "blatant blackmail."
