R&B legend Sean "Diddy" Combs faces shocking allegations from his ex-girlfriend, Cassandra "Cassie" Ventura.
In a lawsuit that emerged on Thursday, Ventura, now 37, accuses Diddy of being violent, controlling, and threatening throughout their 13-year relationship, which began when she was just 19 years old.
In the lawsuit, as reported by Daily Mail, Diddy allegedly forced Ventura to hire male prostitutes.
She was then compelled to have sex with them in various luxury hotel rooms, including Donald Trump's International Hotel in New York, while Diddy filmed and satisfied himself. According to Ventura, Diddy described these encounters as "freak outs" and had specific demands for the sex workers, including "large, black penises".
Ventura's disturbing account details how Diddy instructed her to wear lingerie and white nail polish to contrast with the skin color of the sex workers, and to coat herself in oil.
Diddy's lawyer vehemently denies these serious allegations, dismissing them as "offensive and scandalous".
Ventura's lawsuit also reveals that Diddy's penchant for "freak outs" was evident early in their relationship when he hired a man to participate in boundary-pushing sexual acts with Cassie at his Los Angeles home.
The lawsuit describes how Diddy would masturbate while directing Ventura and the man to perform specific sexual acts, an ordeal that allegedly lasted several days. Ventura claims she had to numb herself with drugs to endure these incidents.
Ventura has finally decided to come forward with her story after years of silence, stating to the New York Times, "After several years in the dark and silent, I am finally ready to tell my story and stand up for myself – also for other women who are subjected to violence and abuse in their relationships."
The lawsuit also alleges that many of Diddy's employees witnessed the violent episodes but were too afraid of their boss to intervene. Ventura claims Diddy often forced her to carry his gun in her bag as a reminder of the harm he could inflict on her.
Ventura's attorney claims that before filing the lawsuit, she spoke with Combs, who offered her an eight-figure sum to remain silent.
