Cassie may finally be getting some closure after her ex-boyfriend, Diddy, admitted to beating her in a hotel hallway in 2016. He calls his actions ‘inexcusable’.

Diddy said he accepted full responsibility for his “inexcusable” actions in the video, which CNN aired earlier this week, in a video he uploaded to his Instagram page

CNN released the video of Combs grabbing, pushing, dragging, and kicking Ventura just before 1 p.m. ET on Friday. The incident matches the claims made by Ventura in a federal lawsuit that was eventually settled.

In November, Cassie—legal name: Cassandra Ventura—filed a lawsuit against Combs, claiming that she had been subjected to years of emotional, physical, and sexual abuse

But, she dropped the case a day later after the parties reached an out-of-court settlement.

Diddy went quiet for almost two days as a media frenzy erupted and criticism grew, even in the comments section of his previous social media posts.

In a video posted to Instagram on Sunday just after 11 a.m. ET, nearly 48 hours after the assault video went viral, Diddy has expressed regret for an incident he had earlier denied had ever occurred.

The music executive acknowledged that he had beaten his ex-girlfriend Cassie in a hotel hallway in 2016. He apologized in a video, saying that his actions were “inexcusable” and that he was “truly sorry.”

“It’s so difficult to reflect on the darkest times in your life, but sometimes you got to do that. I was f**ked up — I hit rock bottom — but I make no excuses. My behavior on that video is inexcusable.

“I take full responsibility for my actions in that video. I was disgusted then when I did it. I’m disgusted now,” the music mogul said in the video statement.

Diddy did not mention Cassie’s name during the apology.
