Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs Admits To Beating Cassie Ventura: ‘I Was F***ed Up’

 Rap mogul Sean “Diddy” Combs apologized on Sunday for his violent assault on his then-girlfriend Cassie Ventura after video was released of the 2016 incident late last week.

CNN exclusively obtained video of the incident late last week — which appears to have happened on March 5, 2016 — at the now-closed InterContinental Hotel in Los Angeles’ Century City neighborhood.

“It’s so difficult to reflect on the darkest times in your life, but sometimes you got to do that,” he said. “I was f***ed up. I mean, I hit rock bottom. And I make no excuses. My behavior on that video is inexcusable. I take full responsibility for my actions in that video.”

“I’m disgusted. I was disgusted then when I did it, I’m disgusted now. I went and I sought out professional help. I had to go into therapy, going to rehab, had to ask God for His mercy and grace,” he continued. “I’m so sorry. But I’m committed to be a better man each and every day. I’m not asking for forgiveness. I’m truly sorry.”


The video shows Combs running down the hall after Ventura and catching up to her as she waits for an elevator.

Combs appears to grab her, throw her on the ground, kick her, and attempt to drag her back to the hotel room. She later slowly gets up and picks up a phone on the wall near the elevator as Combs walks back to the hotel room with her bags.

He later returned and appeared to shove her into a corner before sitting on a nearby chair and throwing an object at her.

The release of the video comes after federal law enforcement officials with the Department of Homeland Security executed raids on two homes belonging to Combs in March in connection to an alleged sex trafficking investigation.

Los Angeles County District Attorney George Gascón’s office said over the weekend that Combs could not be charged for the attack.

“We are aware of the video that has been circulating online allegedly depicting Sean Combs assaulting a young woman in Los Angeles,” the district attorney’s office said in a statement posted to social media.

“We find the images extremely disturbing and difficult to watch,” the statement continued. “If the conduct depicted occurred in 2016, unfortunately we would be unable to charge as the conduct would have occurred beyond the timeline where a crime of assault can be prosecuted. As of today, law enforcement has not presented a case related to the attack depicted in the video against Mr. Combs, but we encourage anyone who has been a victim or witness to a crime to report it to law enforcement or reach out to our office for support from our Bureau of Victims Services.”
