Singer, Cassandra Ventura aka Cassie was not lying after all when she said music mogul, Sean Comb aka Diddy, physically assaulted her during their time together as a couple which was between 2007 and 2018.

A 2016 surveillance video which has surfaced shows Diddy grab, shove, drag and kick her during an altercation that matches allegations in a now-settled federal lawsuit filed by Cassie in November.

The footage, compiled from multiple camera angles dated March 5, 2016, appears to show Diddy during an incident that, according to  Cassie’s complaint, occurred at the now-closed InterContinental Hotel in Century City, Los Angeles.

In the video, Ventura exits a hotel room and walks to a bank of elevators. Combs, holding a towel around his waist, runs down a hall after her. He grabs her by the back of the neck and throws her to the floor. Still holding his towel closed with one hand, he then turns to kick her, the video shows.

As Cassie is on the ground, Diddy retrieves a purse and suitcase from the floor near the elevators. He turns around and kicks Cassie again as she lies motionless on the floor. About four seconds transpire between the two kicks, according to the video. He then briefly drags Cassie by her sweatshirt toward a room before walking away.

Cassie is then seen slowly standing up. She gathers items from the floor and moves to pick up a phone on the hallway wall near the elevators. Diddy, still in a towel and socks, returns.

A mirror directly across from the security camera shows Combs appearing to shove Cassie.

Seconds later, he sits down on a chair, grabs an object off a table and forcefully throws it towards her. Combs is seen walking away, then turns towards Cassie once again when an elevator door opens and someone appears to exit.

Cassie, who reached an undisclosed settlement with Combs, declined to comment on the video.

Diddy has previously denied Cassie’s allegations.

But in Cassie’s lawsuit against Diddy which she later withdrew, she cited the altercation as occurring around March 2016, saying that Diddy became extremely intoxicated and punched her in the face, giving her a black eye.

After Diddy fell asleep, Cassie attempted to leave the hotel room, but he woke up and followed her into the hallway of the hotel while yelling at her, the lawsuit read.

“He grabbed at her, and then took glass vases in the hallway and threw them at her, causing glass to crash around them as she ran to the elevator to escape,” the complaint alleged.

After Cassie got in the elevator, her complaint states that she took a cab to her apartment.

“Upon realizing that her running away would cause Mr. Combs to be even angrier with her, and completely stuck in his vicious cycle of abuse, Ms. Ventura returned to the hotel with the intention of apologizing for running away from her abuser,” the complaint claims.

“When she returned, hotel security staff urged her to get back into a cab and go to her apartment, suggesting that they had seen the security footage showing Mr. Combs beating Ms. Ventura and throwing glass at her in the hotel hallway.”

The complaint alleges Combs paid the InterContinental Century City $50,000 for the hallway security footage from that.

The incident was part of a number of allegations made in the November lawsuit in which Cassie said she was raped in 2018 and subjected to years of repeated physical and other abuses by Combs.

Cassie who was formally signed to Diddy’s label, claimed in her suit that he exerted his power and influence over her throughout the course of their professional and romantic relationship.

According to the complaint, she was 19 when they met and Diddy was 37, and their business relationship lasted until 2019.

It detailed claims that Diddy was physically violent toward Ventura and forced her to engage in various sex acts with other men during that time.

Since November, Diddy has faced five other civil lawsuits accusing him of a range of sexual misconduct and other illegal activity. He has denied the allegations, and the cases remain active.

Authorities searched his homes in California and Florida in April as part of a federal investigation carried out by a Department of Homeland Security team that handles human trafficking crimes, according to a senior federal law enforcement official briefed on the investigation.

The investigation stems from many of the same sexual assault allegations put forth in the civil lawsuits.

These allegations prompted Diddy to sell all of his shares of Revolt TV after previously stepping down as chairman.

Also at least 18 companies have distanced themselves from Diddy’s recently launched e-commerce website Empower Global, a marketplace for Black-owned businesses.
