Diddy Admits He Did It, Breaks Silence on Cassie Assault Video, Says He was “A Different Man,” “Truly Sorry” (Watch)


Sean Diddy Combs has posted a one minute, thirty second video apologizing for the video released by CNN two days ago.

In the video, Combs is seen viciously attacking his girlfriend, Cassie Ventura, in a Los Angeles hotel. The video is so frightening that the LA DA’s office had to comment on it, saying it was too old — from 2016– for them to do anything.

Now Combs says in the posting that he’s truly sorry, was “A different man,” went to therapy.

He says, “I was fucked up. I hit rock bottom My behavior on that video is inexcusable. I take full responsibility for the actions on that video. I went to therapy, I went to rehab. I’m so sorry. I’m committed to being a better man each and every day. I’m not asking for forgiveness. I’m truly sorry.”

UPDATE: Shyne Barrow Denounces P Diddy

Ventura obviously didn’t believe him. Last year she sued him for years of torture and he settled quickly.

Diddy is in a financial free fall because of accusations and lawsuit from many others. His empire has fallen apart. The CNN video is the last straw, so this apology — which is lame by any standards — could be his final undoing. The rapper turned entrepreneur has a history of violence including a famous shootout in a NYC nightclub that involved singer Jennifer Lopez. He was acquitted at a trial but one of his underlings took the rap and went to jail.
