A newly leaked surveillance video reportedly shows Diddy assaulting former girlfriend Cassie in 2016, matching allegations in her now-settled lawsuit.

In a 2016 hotel surveillance video obtained by CNN, a man who appears to be rapper Sean “Diddy” Combs can be seen grabbing, dragging, and kicking a woman who appears to be his former girlfriend, R&B singer Cassie Ventura. While neither individual’s face can be clearly seen, the footage matches allegations in a now-settled lawsuit filed by Ventura in November.

Compiled from multiple camera angles from surveillance footage dated March 5, 2016, the video appears to show the rapper and business mogul with a towel around his waist, chasing a shaken Ventura who tries to escape to an elevator, before he grabs her, throws her to the floor, and kicks her. In addition to retrieving her bags from near the elevator as the woman who appears to be Ventura lies on the ground, the man alleged to be Combs can be seen grabbing an object from a table and throwing it forcefully in her direction.

The incident, according to Ventura’s complaint, took place at the now-closed InterContinental Hotel in Century City, Los Angeles. CNN verified the footage was taken from that location. It matches many of the allegations in Ventura’s complaint.

Cassie Ventura’s filing, which was settled days afterward for an undisclosed amount, cited the altercation as taking place “around March 2016,” when Combs became “extremely intoxicated and punched Ms. Ventura in the face, giving her a black eye.” After he fell asleep, Ventura attempted to escape the hotel room, but Combs awoke and “followed her into the hallway of the hotel while yelling at her.”

“He grabbed at her, and then took glass vases in the hallway and threw them at her, causing glass to crash around them as she ran to the elevator to escape,” read the complaint, which alleges Combs paid the InterContinental Century City Hotel $50,000 for the hallway security footage of the incident.

Cassie Ventura’s lawsuit contained numerous allegations against Combs, including that she was raped in 2018 and subjected to years of repeated physical and psychological abuse throughout the course of their professional and romantic relationship. The filing states she was 19 in when she met a 37-year-old Combs, and their business relationship lasted from 2007 until 2019.

Though Cassie’s lawsuit was promptly settled, Combs has faced five other lawsuits since then, accusing him of similar sexual misconduct and abuse, as well as other illegal activity. He and his legal team have denied these allegations, though a federal investigation into Combs has resulted in raids on his homes in Los Angeles and Miami by the Department of Homeland Security.
