R&B Singer Cassie Files Lawsuit Against Sean “Diddy” Combs, Alleging Decade-Long Abuse

Ventura Accuses Hip-Hop Mogul of Physical Abuse, Sexual Slavery, and Rape in Federal Court Filing

R&B vocalist Cassandra Ventura, known by her stage name Cassie, has filed a federal lawsuit against Sean “Diddy” Combs, the rapper and hip-hop mogul she once dated and signed with under his music label. In the lawsuit, Ventura accuses Combs of subjecting her to serial physical abuse, sexual slavery, and rape over the course of their 10-year professional and romantic relationship.

Filed in U.S. District Court in Manhattan, the lawsuit details disturbing allegations, with one of the central claims being that Combs forced Ventura to engage in sex acts with male prostitutes while he watched and filmed the encounters for his own pleasure.

The legal action also asserts that Combs regularly beat Ventura, exerting control over her through intimidation and substance abuse. Ventura alleges that Combs raped her in 2018 when she expressed the desire to end their relationship.

Combs’ lawyer, Ben Brafman, vehemently denied the allegations, stating that Ventura resorted to a baseless lawsuit after an unsuccessful attempt to extort $30 million from Combs by threatening to write a damaging book about their relationship.

Sean Combs, 54, the founder of Bad Boy Records and a prominent figure in hip-hop, is one of the most influential producers and executives in the industry. The lawsuit portrays him as an erratic and controlling individual with violent tendencies toward Ventura and others.

The legal action does not specify a monetary amount but emphasizes Ventura’s pursuit of justice for the alleged decade-long abuse. The lawsuit cites violations of sex trafficking and human trafficking statutes under federal, New York, and California laws.

Reid, and music executive Neil Portnow. The lawsuit against Combs sheds light on the broader issue of abuse within the industry and the need for accountability.
