In documents obtained by HipHopDX on Thursday (November 16), the singer (real name Casandra Ventura) accused the Bad Boy mogul of a sundry of crimes, including rape, sex trafficking, and physical abuse.
The filing also claims that he “forced Ms. Ventura to engage in sex acts with male sex workers while masturbating and filming the encounters,” as well as forced her to carry a handgun even though she felt uncomfortable with doing so. Finally, she claimed that Diddy plied her with drugs and alcohol, triggering a substance abuse problem.
Cassie claims the aforementioned acts took place over the course of their nearly decade-long relationship, with the violence continuing to escalate with each passing year.
Amongst the myriad of accusations is Cassie’s accusation that Diddy (real name Sean Combs) allegedly blew up Kid Cudi‘s car during Paris Fashion Week. According to Cassie, she briefly had an affair with the “Day ‘n’ Nite” rapper in 2011, when she and Diddy were going through what she called a “rough patch.”
When the pair reunited, Diddy allegedly found some emails between Kid Cudi and Cassie, and grew progressively angry about the prospect, until things came to a violent end.
“In February 2012, during Paris Fashion Week, Mr. Combs told Ms. Ventura that he was going to blow up Kid Cudi’s car, and that he wanted to ensure that Kid Cudi was home with his friends when it happened. Around that time, Kid Cudi’s car exploded in his driveway,” page 20 of the filing alleges.
Cassie is seeking unspecified damages, plus related attorney’s fees and costs.

Cassie issued a statement to The New York Times about her accusations, saying: “After years in silence and darkness, I am finally ready to tell my story, and to speak up on behalf of myself and for the benefit of other women who face violence and abuse in their relationships.”
Diddy’s lawyer, Benjamin Brafman, also released a statement to the Times, vehemently denying the allegations.
“Mr. Combs vehemently denies these offensive and outrageous allegations,” he said. “For the past six months, Mr. Combs has been subjected to Ms. Ventura’s persistent demand of $30million, under the threat of writing a damaging book about their relationship, which was unequivocally rejected as blatant blackmail.
“Despite withdrawing her initial threat, Ms. Ventura has now resorted to filing a lawsuit riddled with baseless and outrageous lies, aiming to tarnish Mr. Combs’s reputation and seeking a payday.”
HipHopDX has also reached out to Diddy’s reps for comment.
Cassie and Diddy were first romantically linked in 2007, but their relationship was mostly kept secret until 2012, when the couple went public with their relationship. However, the couple ultimately split in 2018, after nearly a decade of being together.
At the time of their split, the couple said that they “remained friends” and that Cassie was going to focus on her career in music and acting. The couple share no children.
