The details in the motion are so graphic that a “trigger warning” notice is on the front page of the lawsuit document.
Cassie met Diddy in 2005 when she was 19 while the music executive was 37. She disclosed that Diddy forced her to have sex with male prostitutes while he watched and masturbated. She added that it was also her job to source for these men who would violate her body at the pleasure of her master (Diddy).
According to the court documents Cassie submitted, She detailed that once Diddy signed her to his record label, Bad Boy, he started “plying her with drugs and alcohol, causing her to fall into dangerous addictions that controlled her life”.
Cassie alleged that he was required to dress up in lingerie, oil, and white nail polish to contrast with the skin of the black sex workers. She said Diddy called these horrific encounters his “Freak Outs.”
Diddy’s legal team vehemently denies these claims while fingering Cassie as the classic blackmailer who had earlier tried to extort millions of dollars from the rapper.
“Mr. Combs vehemently denies these offensive and outrageous allegations. For the past six months, Mr. Combs has been subjected to Ms. Ventura’s persistent demand of $30 million, under the threat of writing a damaging book about their relationship, which was unequivocally rejected as blatant blackmail,” his lawyer Ben Brafman said in a statement.
Cassie’s lawyer, Douglas Wigdor, swiftly combated with a declaration that Diddy offered hush money, which she rejected.
“Mr. Comb’s offered Ms. Ventura eight figures to silence her and prevent the filing of this lawsuit. She rejected his efforts and decided to give a voice to all women who suffer in silence,” Cassie’s lawyer said.
Cassie said she wants to be a beacon of hope for women in similar situations.
