Diddy allegedly assaulted former girlfriend on hotel surveillance video: Report

In 2016, a hotel surveillance video obtained by CNN reportedly showed Sean “Diddy” Combs physically assaulting his former girlfriend, Cassie Ventura.

“The video footage has undeniably served as further evidence of Mr. Combs’ alarming and predatory actions,” expressed Douglas H. Wigdor, Ventura’s attorney. He also added, “It is truly remarkable to witness the immense bravery and determination displayed by Ms. Ventura in her decision to come forward and shed light on this matter.”

In Ventura’s 37-page complaint, she provided detailed allegations stating that “In or around March 2016, during a gathering at the InterContinental Hotel in Century City, Los Angeles, Mr. Combs became heavily intoxicated and physically assaulted Ms. Ventura, resulting in a black eye.”

Ventura managed to reach the elevator and hailed a cab to go back home, as stated in the lawsuit. However, she soon realized that her escape would only worsen Mr. Combs’ anger and perpetuate his cycle of abuse. In an attempt to rectify the situation, she made the decision to return to the hotel and apologize for her attempt to flee from her abuser, according to the lawsuit.

Upon her return to the hotel, the hotel security staff allegedly persuaded her to take a cab and go to her apartment, insinuating that they had viewed the security footage of Combs physically assaulting her, as stated in the lawsuit.

According to the lawsuit, it is believed that Mr. Combs paid $50,000 to the InterContinental Century City for the hallway security footage from that evening.

Diddy, who resolved the lawsuit with Ventura in November, has consistently refuted the accusations. ABC News has contacted Diddy’s representatives for a response.

Ventura’s husband, model Alex Fine, took to Instagram on Friday evening to share a heartfelt statement that he had written some time ago. In the post, he expressed his strong belief that men who engage in violence against women do not deserve to be called men. He also condemned those who support and shield these individuals, stating that they too cannot be considered true men.

“[T]hese words resonate, not only today, but every day,” Fine emphasized in reference to the post. She further expressed, “I aspire for my children and all children to inhabit a world that prioritizes the safety of women and girls, while treating them as equals.” Although the post did not explicitly mention Sean Combs, its message remains clear.
