According to a report at TMZ, Diddy has settled a lawsuit from a February 2007 incident. At an Oscars after-party, Diddy allegedly approached a woman and invited her to another party. When the woman’s fiancée returned from the bathroom and insisted that she leave with him instead, according to the report, Diddy hit the man in the face. While Diddy explained the situation as an instinctive reaction to the man lunging at him, TMZ has a document that shows he settled for an undisclosed amount.
