Grammy-winning R&B artist Cassie, once romantically linked to music icon Diddy, has filed a lawsuit. This lawsuit accuses him of rape and a decade-long pattern of control and abuse. The suit also alleges Diddy’s involvement in a disturbing cycle of substance abuse, violence, and manipulation. With the expiration of New York’s Adult Survivors Act imminent, Cassie has now seized the opportunity to share her story and shed light on relationship violence. In a bold statement, Cassie declares, “After years in silence and darkness, I am finally ready to tell my story.”
The suit details harrowing incidents, including a 2018 alleged rape and disturbing encounters involving male sex workers. Diddy vehemently denies the accusations. The explosive lawsuit comes under the umbrella of the recently enacted Adult Survivors Act, allowing survivors a one-year window to file claims that would otherwise be barred by the statute of limitations.
