US Rapper Diddy Denies Cassie’s Rape, Abuse Allegations

US Rapper Diddy Denies Cassie’s Rape Abuse Allegations – American Rap artiste, Sean “Diddy” Combs has denied allegations of rape and sex trafficking by his ex-girlfriend, Casandra Ventura a.k.a Cassie. Cassie had filed a lawsuit alleging she was trapped for a decade in a cycle of abuse and violence.

Diddy denies the allegations, accusing the singer of trying to extort him. His lawyer, Ben Brafman said the claims were “offensive and outrageous”. Cassie, an R&B singer and dancer alleges that the rap producer raped and beat her over 10 years ago starting when she was 19 and he was 37.

“After years in silence and darkness, I am finally ready to tell my story,” she said in a statement on Thursday.

The lawsuit includes multiple graphic descriptions of the violent abuse that she says occurred beginning after she met the rapper in 2005.

According to the complaint, Diddy signed her to his record label, Bad Boy, and “plied the vulnerable Ms Ventura with
drugs and alcohol, causing her to fall into dangerous addictions that controlled her life”.

The lawsuit labels the musician a “serial domestic abuser, who would regularly beat and kick Cassie, leaving black eyes, bruises, and blood”.

In her statement, Cassie said she was ready “to speak up on behalf of myself and for the benefit of other women who
face violence and abuse in their relationships”.

In a statement, Diddy’s lawyer said Cassie had demanded $30m (£24m) “under the threat of writing a damaging book about their relationship”. His lawyer, Benjamin Brafman, said the alleged demand “was unequivocally rejected as blatant blackmail”.

“Ms Ventura has now resorted to filing a lawsuit riddled with baseless and outrageous lies, aiming to tarnish Mr Combs’ reputation, and seeking a payday,” he added.

In response to Mr Brafman, Cassie’s lawyer, Doug Wigdor, said Diddy had offered her a payment of “eight figures to silence her and prevent the filing of this lawsuit”. “She rejected his efforts and decided to give a voice to all women who suffer in silence,” he said.

Her lawsuit also alleges that the music mogul told her he planned to “blow up” a car owned by rapper Kid Cudi. Diddy had become jealous that Cassie was in a relationship with the rapper, according to the legal action.

She says he told her of his plan during Paris Fashion Week in 2012. “Mr Combs told Ms Ventura that he was going to blow up Kid Cudi’s car,” the complaint says, “and that he wanted to ensure that Kid Cudi was home with his friends when it happened. Around that time, Kid Cudi’s car exploded in his driveway.” A spokeswoman for Kid Cudi told the New York Times that Cassie’s account was true.

She released several hits in the 2000s, including songs that featured Diddy. Her most famous tracks include Me & U, Long Way to Go and Official Girl, featuring Lil Wayne.
