Diddy Issues Apology For Disturbing Video: ‘I Was Disgusted’

Diddy finally responds to the disturbing video footage from CNN, where he is in an altercation with his then-girlfriend, Cassie Ventura. In a new Instagram post, the disgraced mogul apologized for his behavior. “It’s so difficult to reflect on the darkest times in your life, but sometimes you gotta do that,” he began. The superstar and hitmaker claims he was not himself: “I mean I hit rock bottom. But I make no excuses.”

Diddy added, “My behavior on the video was inexcusable. I take full responsibility for my actions in that video.” He continues: “I was disgusted then when I did it, I’m disgusted now. I went and sought professional help, had to go to therapy, rehab. Had to ask God for his mercy and grace. I’m so sorry. I’m committed to being a better man each and every day. I’m not asking for forgiveness. I’m truly sorry.”

“My behavior on the video was inexcusable,” Diddy Says

The statement comes after CNN obtained footage of the alleged altercation, which happened in March 2016. The footage sees a shaken Cassie swiftly moving down the hallway to the elevator. However, it’s not long before Diddy — with a towel around his waist — runs down the hallway after her. When he finally catches up with her, he grabs her by the hair and slams her to the ground. The Bad Boy CEO then kicks her multiple times as she lies on the ground.

Last year, Cassie sued the producer and accused him rape, physical abuse, and human trafficking. Nearly one day later, the pair settled out of court for an undisclosed amount. The former couple were together for 11 years, from 2007 until 2019. Cassie’s Husband, Alex Fine — the former personal trainer of Ventura and Combs — recently hopped on Instagram to offer a statement. “Men who hit women aren’t men,” he wrote. “Men who enable it and protect those people aren’t men. As men violence against women shouldn’t be inevitable, check your brothers, your friends, and your family.”
