Sean “Diddy” Combs apologized on Sunday after a video surfaced showing him assaulting his ex-girlfriend Cassie in 2016, which aligns with her claims in a now-settled lawsuit.

In a video statement on Instagram, Combs, who is also under federal investigation and facing several civil lawsuits, admitted his “behavior on that video is inexcusable.”

Reflecting on his past, Combs said, “It’s difficult to revisit the darkest times of your life, but it’s necessary. I hit rock bottom, and there are no excuses. I take full responsibility for my actions in that video. I was disgusted then, and I am disgusted now.”

He added that the incident led him to seek therapy and rehab. “I’m deeply sorry. I am committed to becoming a better person each day. I’m not asking for forgiveness. I am truly sorry.”

Cassie, whose real name is Casandra Ventura, filed a federal lawsuit in November alleging that Combs raped and physically abused her throughout their relationship, including incidents of punching, kicking, and stomping. Her lawsuit, which was settled shortly after filing, described an assault in a hotel, seemingly corroborated by the recently released video.

Combs denied these allegations, describing them as sickening, and stated that the settlement was not an admission of guilt.

Meredith Firetog, Cassie’s attorney, criticized Combs’ apology, stating it was “more about himself than those he has hurt.” She noted that Combs had previously denied everything and accused the victims of seeking a payday. Firetog added, “His ‘apology’ only came after his denials were proven false, showing his desperation and insincerity.”

CNN reported that the video, captured in a hotel hallway in March 2016, shows a man identified as Combs assaulting a woman near an elevator. The footage, which lacks audio, depicts Combs grabbing, throwing, and kicking the woman, then dragging her by her sweatshirt.

Douglas Wigdor, another attorney for Cassie, said the video further confirmed Combs’ disturbing behavior and praised Cassie’s bravery in coming forward.

The Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office acknowledged the “disturbing and difficult to watch” video but stated that the incident falls outside the statute of limitations for assault, meaning no charges could be pursued.

Combs remains under federal scrutiny. In March, Homeland Security agents raided his properties in California and Florida, seizing phones and executing search warrants related to various allegations.

Since Cassie’s claims, five additional lawsuits have been filed against Combs, accusing him of sexual assault, trafficking, and other crimes. Combs has denied all allegations and is seeking to dismiss some of the lawsuits.

Aaron Dyer, one of Combs’ attorneys, reiterated his client’s innocence following the federal raid, describing it as an ambush and urging against a rush to judgment based on what he called “meritless accusations made in civil lawsuits.”
