Cassie’s lawyer slams Diddy’s ‘misleading’ apology video as stars react to hotel assault claim

Cassie’s legal team fired back against Sean “Diddy” Combs after the music mogul attempted to apologize for his actions following the recent release of a video showing Combs beating his then-girlfriend in the hallway of a Los Angeles hotel in 2016.

“Combs’ most recent statement is more about himself than the many people he has hurt,” Meredith Firetog, a partner at Wigdor LLP, the law firm representing Ventura, told Fox News Digital.

“When Cassie and several other women came forward, he denied everything and suggested his victims were looking for pay. The fact that he was only forced to ‘apologize’ after his repeated denials were proven false shows his pathetic desperation, and no one will be swayed by his fallacious words.

Combs broke his silence Sunday on the eight-year-old video that just began circulating Friday, and said his “behavior on this video is inexcusable.”

In a clip obtained exclusively by CNN, the rapper was seen running down a hotel hallway with a towel. Moments before, Cassie (Cassandra Ventura) had walked down the same hallway with bags in hand towards the elevators.

Once Combs reached the elevators, he grabbed Cassie by the neck and threw her to the ground. Combs then kicked her twice, picked up her bags and dragged her down the hallway before returning to the same location to use a phone.

“It’s so hard to reflect on the darkest moments of your life, but sometimes you have to do it. I was screwed – I hit rock bottom – but I can’t make any excuses,” he said . “My behavior in this video is inexcusable. I take full responsibility for my actions in this video.”

Combs admitted, “I was disgusted at the time when I did it. I’m disgusted now. I went and got professional help. I started going to a therapy, to follow a detoxification treatment.

“I had to ask God for mercy and grace. I am truly sorry. But I am committed to becoming a better man every day. I am not asking for forgiveness. I am truly sorry.”

The rapper’s words, however, fell on deaf ears. Aubrey O’Day, who formerly fronted her all-girl band Danity Kane and has since been an outspoken critic of Combs, criticized his apology video.

“Diddy didn’t apologize to Cassie. He apologized to the whole world for seeing what he did,” she wrote on X, formerly known as Twitter.

“He says he’s ‘disgusted with himself now, and he was disgusted with himself then’…but apparently he wasn’t disgusted with himself enough not to pin this statement calling her a liar and denying it all… leave God and mercy out of that, they are not present here, and you know it.

Along with his comments, O’Day attached the initial denial of Combs’ claims after Cassie filed a lengthy sexual abuse lawsuit against her ex in November. A day after it was filed, they settled the dispute for an undisclosed amount.

Combs’ other longtime nemesis, 50 Cent, also chimed in to let the “Mo Money, Mo Problems” rapper know what he thought of the apology.

“This isn’t going to work, who’s advising him right now? Bad decision by SMH,” 50 Cent wrote.
