In a recent lawsuit filed in a New York federal court, R&B artist Cassie, legally known as Casandra Ventura, has accused music producer Sean “Diddy” Combs of subjecting her to a prolonged period of physical abuse and rape. The lawsuit claims that Combs introduced her to a life characterized by extravagance, fast pace, and drug involvement shortly after she joined his label at 19, with Combs being 37 at the time in 2005.

Ben Brafman, Combs’ attorney, firmly refutes these allegations. Ventura, now 37, asserts that Combs, who is currently 54, began abusive behavior at the onset of their relationship.

The lawsuit details Combs’ alleged uncontrollable anger leading to “savage” assaults involving punching, kicking, and stomping Ventura. It also accuses him of drug use, coercing her into sexual acts with other men for his voyeuristic pleasure, and filming these encounters.

According to the lawsuit, in 2018, as Ventura attempted to end the relationship, Combs allegedly raped her in her Los Angeles residence. Ventura expressed her decision to break her silence, intending to support other women experiencing violence and abuse in relationships.

The Big Big News typically refrains from naming sexual abuse victims unless they choose to come forward, as Ventura has.

Brafman dismisses the claims as fabrications, alleging Ventura demanded $30 million from Combs over the past six months, threatening to publish a damaging book about their relationship. He characterizes her lawsuit as a baseless and sensational attempt at defamation and financial gain.

Douglas Wigdor, Ventura’s attorney, counters by stating that Combs had offered Ventura a significant sum to remain silent and prevent the lawsuit, which she declined, choosing to voice the concerns of silenced women instead.

Combs, a key figure in hip-hop production and executive circles over the last 30 years, and Ventura, who became prominent with her hit single “Me & U” in 2006, dated intermittently for over a decade starting in 2007.

Ventura’s career spans beyond music to acting, with roles in “Empire,” “Step Up 2: The Streets,” and “Spenser Confidential.”

Combs, the founder of Bad Boy Records and a three-time Grammy winner, has been influential in hip-hop, collaborating with artists like Notorious B.I.G., Mary J. Blige, and Usher. He also ventured into fashion with Sean John, founded Revolt TV, and produced MTV’s “Making the Band.”

His recent album, “The Love Album: Off the Grid,” received two Grammy nominations this year.

In the lawsuit, Ventura contradicts Combs’ 2022 BET Awards lifetime achievement speech, where he thanked her for support during difficult times. The suit alleges that Ventura, instead, endured over a decade of Combs’ violent and erratic behavior.
