Sean “Diddy” Combs’ attorney said in a statement that his client settling the rape and abuse lawsuit with Cassie was in “no way an admission of wrongdoing.”
“Just so we’re clear, a decision to settle a lawsuit, especially in 2023, is in no way an admission of wrongdoing,” attorney Ben Brafman said in a statement to Page Six Saturday.
“Mr. Combs‘ decision to settle the lawsuit does not in any way undermine his flat-out denial of the claims. He is happy they got to a mutual settlement and wishes Ms. Ventura the best.”
Brafman’s latest statement comes hours after news broke that the Bad Boy Records founder had settled the rape and abuse lawsuit his ex Cassie filed against him on Thursday.
“I have decided to resolve this matter amicably on terms that I have some level of control,” the singer, whose full name is Casandra Ventura, said in a statement Friday following the settlement.
“I want to thank my family, fans and lawyers for their unwavering support.”
