In a shocking turn of events, music mogul Sean “Diddy” Combs has broken his silence regarding a disturbing video from 2016 that shows him assaulting his ex-girlfriend, Cassie. The footage, which resurfaced recently, has sparked widespread outrage and has now prompted Diddy to address the incident publicly.

On Sunday, May 19, Diddy took to Instagram to share a heartfelt and raw video statement, captioning it simply: “I’m truly sorry.”

“It’s so difficult to reflect on the darkest times in your life,” Diddy began, visibly emotional. “Sometimes you gotta do that. I was f—– up. I mean, I hit rock bottom but I make no excuses. My behavior on that video is inexcusable.”

He continued, “I take full responsibility for my actions in that video. Disgusted. I was disgusted then when I did it, I’m disgusted now. I went and I sought out professional help, going to therapy, going to rehab. I had to ask God for his mercy and grace. I’m so sorry, but I’m committed to be a better man. Each and every day.”

Diddy concluded his statement by emphasizing that he is “not asking for forgiveness” but is “truly sorry.”

The video in question, released by CNN on May 17, shows a harrowing altercation between Combs and Cassie, whose real name is Casandra Ventura. The footage aligns with allegations she made in a lawsuit filed last November, which has since been settled.

In the video, Cassie can be seen exiting a hotel room and heading toward an elevator. Diddy follows her, grabbing her by the neck and throwing her to the ground. He then kicks her, grabs her purse and suitcase, and drags her back toward the hotel room. The video continues with Diddy throwing an object at her before walking away.

Cassie’s attorney, Douglas H. Wigdor, confirmed that the video corroborates her previous allegations. “The gut-wrenching video has only further confirmed the disturbing and predatory behavior of Mr. Combs. Words cannot express the courage and fortitude that Ms. Ventura has shown in coming forward to bring this to light,” Wigdor said in a statement.

The now-settled lawsuit detailed a similar incident at the InterContinental Hotel in Los Angeles in 2016, where Cassie alleged that Diddy, in a drunken rage, punched her in the face, giving her a black eye. The lawsuit describes her attempt to leave the hotel room, only to be pursued, assaulted, and terrorized by Diddy in the hallway.

Despite the horrific nature of these events, Cassie showed immense bravery in sharing her story and seeking justice. Her resilience serves as an inspiration to many who have endured similar abuse.

Diddy’s public apology marks a significant moment in this ongoing narrative, reflecting on his past actions with remorse and committing to personal growth. While the wounds of the past cannot be undone, his acknowledgment and efforts toward change are steps toward accountability.
