Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs and Cassie resolve sexual abuse lawsuit out of courtNovember 18, 2023
R&B singer Cassie has settled with ex-boyfriend Diddy after accusing him of sexual abuse and rape. The settlement was reached just one day after a lawsuit was filed in New York. Both parties issued statements expressing their desire to resolve the matter amicably, with no further comment provided. In the lawsuit, Cassie alleged that Diddy raped her, subjected her to repeated physical and mental abuse, and forced her to engage in various sex acts with male sex workers through threats of violence. She also claimed he subjected her to “savage” beatings. Cassie said she is ready to tell her story and speak up for the benefit of other women facing violence and abuse in their relationships. Diddy’s attorney, Ben Brafman, did not immediately respond to the settlement announcement. He had previously stated that Diddy “vehemently denies” the allegations.
