R&B singer Cassandra Ventura, known as Cassie, filed a federal lawsuit against Sean “Diddy” Combs on Thursday.

She alleges that the rapper, with whom she was previously romantically involved and signed to his music label, subjected her to continuous physical abuse, sexual exploitation, and rape.

Among the key accusations is that Combs compelled her to participate in sexual activities with a series of male sex workers he hired, all while he observed and recorded the encounters for his personal satisfaction.

The legal action, initiated in the U.S. District Court in Manhattan, alleges that Combs consistently assaulted Ventura throughout their 10-year professional and romantic association.

During this time, he purportedly exerted control through intimidation and by providing her with drugs and alcohol.

Ventura, aged 37, claims that in 2018, towards the conclusion of their relationship, Combs raped her when she expressed the intention of ending the association.

Combs’ lawyer, Ben Brafman, issued a statement saying his client “vehemently denies these offensive and outrageous allegations.”

Brafman stated that Ventura pursued legal action, submitting a lawsuit filled with unfounded and sensational falsehoods, following an unsuccessful attempt to extort $30 million from Combs.

This attempt involved a threat to expose damaging details about their relationship in a book. Combs, aged 54 and renowned as the founder of Bad Boy Records, holds significant influence in hip-hop as a producer and executive.

Additionally, he has achieved considerable success as a performer and is the force behind the Sean John clothing line.

In 2017, Forbes magazine placed him at the top of the list of the highest-earning musicians globally, with an annual income of around $130 million at that time.

The lawsuit does not aim to obtain a specific monetary compensation. Instead, it says Ventura seeks “justice for the decade of her life that Mr. Combs took away from her with threats of violence, excessive use of drugs, physical and psychological abuse and sexual slavery.”
