Diddy Seen Allegedly Physically Assaulting Ex Cassie in 2016 Security Video

Sean “Diddy” Combs appeared to physically assault ex-girlfriend Cassie in newly released security footage from 2016.

The clip was obtained by CNN on Friday, May 17. Diddy, 54, can reportedly be seen grabbing, shoving, dragging and kicking Cassie, 37, at the now-closed InterContinental Hotel in Century City, Los Angeles.

In the video, Cassie (whose full name is Casandra Ventura) is seen leaving a hotel room and heading toward the elevators. Diddy walked out of the room in a towel to go after her. When Diddy reached her, he allegedly grabbed Cassie by her neck, threw her to the floor and kicked her.

While Cassie lay on the ground, Diddy retrieved her purse and luggage before allegedly kicking her again. Diddy then allegedly dragged Cassie up by her sweatshirt toward the room before he walked away by himself. Shortly after, Cassie stood up and gathered her items that were on the floor before walking over to a phone in the hotel’s hallway. Diddy then returned for her and allegedly started to assault her again.

“The gut-wrenching video has only further confirmed the disturbing and predatory behavior of Mr. Combs,” Cassie’s attorney Douglas H. Wigdor said in a statement to Us Weekly on Friday. “Words cannot express the courage and fortitude that Ms. Ventura has shown in coming forward to bring this to light.”

Us has reached out to Diddy for comment.

Cassie and Diddy dated on and off from 2007 to 2018. Following their breakup, she accused him of abuse that allegedly occurred during their relationship. Cassie filed a November 2023 lawsuit against Diddy where she alleged the music mogul raped and sexually abused her. One day after the singer filed her lawsuit, the exes settled out of court. Diddy denied all allegations in the suit.

Months after Cassie’s lawsuit made headlines, Diddy faced another scandal as his Los Angeles and Miami homes were raided by Homeland Security in March. Multiple outlets reported that the raid was in connection with a federal sex trafficking investigation.

Diddy’s lawyer Aaron Dyer addressed the raids and claimed that law enforcement displayed “a gross overuse of military-level force as search warrants were executed at Mr. Combs’ residences.”

“There has been no finding of criminal or civil liability with any of these allegations,” Dyer said in a statement to Us at the time. “Mr. Combs is innocent and will continue to fight every single day to clear his name.”
