Sean “Diddy” Combs and R&B singer Cassie on Friday settled a lawsuit she filed one day earlier that accused the legendary music producer and rapper of raping and physically abusing her for over a decade.
Both sides “resolved the claims … to their mutual satisfaction,” Cassie’s lawyer announced without disclosing the terms of the settlement.
“I have decided to resolve this matter amicably on terms that I have some level of control. I want to thank my family, fans and lawyers for their unwavering support,” Cassie, whose full name is Casandra Ventura, wrote in a statement.
Combs, 54, added in his own statement: “We have decided to resolve this matter amicably. I wish Cassie and her family all the best.”
Ventura had alleged in the short-lived suit that Combs regularly fed her drugs and alcohol, forced her to have sex with male prostitutes and viciously raped and beat her shortly after meeting her in 2005 until 2018.
