Cassie Ventura thanks the people who supported her in the video of the attack on Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs

Combs posted an apology on social media on Sunday, two days after the video was posted on CNN.

“I’m so sorry,” he said in a video post on his Instagram page. “My behavior in that video is inexcusable. I take full responsibility for my actions in that video. I’m disgusted. I felt disgusted then when I did it. I’m disgusted now.”

In the surveillance video, the rapper appears to grab Ventura as he waits next to an elevator at the hotel.

Ventura wrote that he is better now but will always be recovering from his past.

“My only request is that EVERYONE opens their hearts to believing victims for the first time. It takes a lot of heart to tell the truth in a situation where you were powerless,” she wrote.

He urged people to never bear burdens alone and said their “healing journey” would never end even with support.

Other women in the industry, especially other black women, added supportive comments to the 37-year-old singer’s post.

Color Purple actor Taraji P Henson sent a message with hearts and praying hands, while fellow vocalist Chloe Bailey wrote “we love you so much Cassie.”

Ventura sued Combs in 2023, accusing him of serial physical abuse, sexual slavery and rape during a 10-year relationship. The lawsuit said he controlled her through intimidation, drugs and alcohol.

The parties settled the matter the following day for undisclosed terms. Combs’ representatives said at the time that the settlement was “in no way an admission of wrongdoing.”

Attorney Meredith Firetog, who represented Ventura, said Combs’ apology Sunday doesn’t justify it.
