Singer-songwriter Cassie, whose real name is Cassandra Ventura, has settled her lawsuit against music mogul Diddy, whose real name is Sean Combs. According to The New York Times, both parties reached an undisclosed settlement one day after Cassie filed a lawsuit accusing Diddy of rape and physical abuse.
Cassie’s lawyer, Douglas Wigdor, said in a statement that the settlement was “amicable” and that Cassie was “pleased with the outcome.” He declined to disclose the terms of the settlement.
Diddy’s lawyer, Benjamin Brafman, also said in a statement that the settlement was “amicable” and that Diddy “denies all of the allegations made against him.”
Cassie’s lawsuit, which was filed in New York federal court, alleged that Diddy had subjected her to years of abuse, including rape, physical assault, and emotional distress. Diddy denied the allegations and called them “ridiculous” and “completely fabricated.”
The settlement of the lawsuit is a significant development in the case, and it is unclear what it will mean for Diddy’s career. However, it is clear that Cassie is determined to move forward with her life and put this chapter behind her.
