Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs’ ex Cassie cooperating with federal investigators amid sex trafficking probe: report

Sean “Diddy” Combs’ ex, Cassie, reportedly cooperated with investigators as a federal sex trafficking probe was launched against the rapper.

Cassie, who dated the music mogul for a decade until their breakup in 2018, began working with law enforcement several weeks ago, sources told TMZ.

This indicates that the “Me & U” hitmaker – an R&B singer formerly signed to his label – may have been aware of the multiple raids on the rapper’s home last week.

Federal agents moved in to seize Combs’ phones and computers in Los Angeles and Miami as part of the federal investigation.

Law enforcement told the Post that similar raids would take place in New York and Chicago.

Several other women, who have not been named, are also believed to be in contact with federal investigators working on the case, the outlet added.

The Post has reached out to Cassie’s representatives for comment.

Cassie, 37, sensationally came forward in November when she detailed the alleged abuse she suffered from the “I’ll Be Missing You” musician during their relationship.

She accused the mogul of raping and physically abusing her for more than a decade.

The couple had an on-and-off public relationship that she says began shortly after they met in 2005, when she was just 19 and he was 37.

The “Long Way 2 Go” singer, real name Casandra Ventura, claimed the legendary music producer and rapper stalked, raped and violently beat her starting in 2005 and continuing until 2018.

She also alleged that Combs, 54, regularly gave her drugs and alcohol, forced her to have sex with prostitutes while he filmed the encounters and blew up Kid Cudi’s car when he had learned that the rapper had a romantic interest in her.

When she tried to end the relationship in 2018, the Revolt CEO allegedly forced Ventura into his own home and raped her, according to the lawsuit.

Combs “vehemently” denied the allegations after the complaint was filed.

The exes settled the matter privately 24 hours later.

After last month’s raid, the rapper’s lawyer, Aaron Dyer, blasted the “military-level force” used by federal authorities to search the “I’ll Be Missing You” hitmaker’s properties.

The hip hop mogul is under investigation for sex trafficking according to law enforcement sources, allegations his lawyer has called a “witch hunt.”

Diddy was not arrested or charged “but has spoken and cooperated with authorities,” his attorney said. His movements were not restricted in any way, he added.
