American rapper P Diddy, whose real name is Sean Combs

Cable News Network (CNN) has obtained a surveillance footage of P Diddy physically assaulting his ex-girlfriend Cassie in 2016, shedding light into Cassie’s plight at the hands of the American rapper.

The video which went viral on social media saw netizens weigh in with a host of celebrities also joining the conversation.

The footage shows Cassie walking down the hotel corridor carrying a bag, seemingly unaware that the Diddy, whose real name is Sean Combs would catch up with her only seconds later.

This incident was referenced in her Nov. 2023 lawsuit. Although Diddy denied all of her allegations, the disturbing footage obtained by CNN tells a different story.

He is seen picking up a purse and another item that had fallen during the assault before returning to where a helpless Cassie lay and kicks her yet again.

The footage further shows the disgraced singer pulling Cassie on the floor, using her sweatshirt to the direction they had come from.

The assault is believed to have happened at the InterContinental Hotel in Century City, Los Angeles, which has since shut down.

The footage is dated March 5, 2016, with CNN claiming that the location of the footage was verified by comparing the footage to publicly available images of the InterContinental Hotel.

The American rapper was accused of rape and assault by his now ex-girlfriend, with the parties settling the matter out of court on Friday, November 17, 2023.

The two resolved their case amicably less than 24 hours after the $30 million bombshell suit was filed. Cassie, whose full name is Casandra Ventura, disclosed this in a statement provided to the New York Times on Friday evening.

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,” she said.
