    Domestic violence is the issue – Cassie Ventura on 2016 video with ex Diddy

    Published on

    Cassie said that the public’s outpouring of love has helped her find peace.

    Cassie Ventura, the 37-year-old singer and actress, has spoken out for the first time following the release of a disturbing 2016 video that shows her being physically abused by her ex-boyfriend, music mogul Sean “Diddy” Combs.

    On Thursday, May 23, Cassie took to Instagram to share her thoughts and emotions, expressing gratitude for the overwhelming support she has received. “Thank you for all of the love and support from my family, friends, strangers and those I have yet to meet,” she wrote.

    Cassie further explained how the public’s outpouring of love has helped her find peace. “The outpouring of love has created a place for my younger self to settle and feel safe now,” she added. However, she emphasised that this is just the beginning of her journey. “Domestic Violence is THE issue. It broke me down to someone I never thought I would become. With a lot of hard work, I am better today, but I will always be recovering from the past.”

    The singer highlighted that her healing journey is ongoing, and the support she has received means everything to her. “This healing journey is never ending, but this support means everything to me,” Cassie said. “Thank you.”

    Cassie’s statement follows a lawsuit she filed against Combs last November, which has since been settled. In the lawsuit, she accused Combs of rape and sex trafficking during a decade-long abusive relationship. “After years in silence and darkness, I am finally ready to tell my story, and to speak up on behalf of myself and for the benefit of other women who face violence and abuse in their relationships,” Cassie stated. She explained that with the expiration of New York’s Adult Survivors Act approaching, she saw it as an opportunity to speak out about her trauma.

    Sean “Diddy” Combs, 54, has denied all allegations. His attorney described the claims as “offensive and outrageous.” In a statement released on December 6, Combs addressed the accusations, saying, “ENOUGH IS ENOUGH. For the last couple of weeks, I have sat silently and watched people try to assassinate my character, destroy my reputation and my legacy. Sickening allegations have been made against me by individuals looking for a quick payday.

    After CNN first published the video, Diddy apologised for what he called the “darkest times” of his life.

    It’s so difficult to reflect on the darkest times in your life. Sometimes you gotta do that. I was fucked up. I mean I hit rock bottom but I make no excuses. My behaviour on that video is inexcusable. I take full responsibility for my actions in that video. I’m truly sorry,” Diddy said.
