Cassie Speaks Up


R&B singer and model, Cassie, has broken her silence after the recent release of the disturbing footage of her ex-boyfriend Diddy assaulting her in a hotel in 2016.

Earlier today (May 23), the “Me & U” singer shared a statement on Instagram to address the incident and the support she has received since the release of the footage

In the post, Cassie stated, “Thank you for all of the love and support from my family, friends, strangers and those I have yet to meet. The outpouring of love has created a place for my younger self to settle and feel safe now, but this is only the beginning. Domestic Violence is THE issue. It broke me down to someone I never thought I would become. With a lot of hard work, I am better today, but I will always be recovering from my past. Thank you to everyone that has taken the time to take this matter seriously. My only ask is that EVERYONE open your heart to believing victims the first time. It takes a lot of heart to tell the truth out of a situation that you were powerless in. I offer my hand to those that are still living in fear. Reach out to your people, don’t cut them off. No one should carry this weight alone. This healing journey is never ending, but this support means everything to me…”

Cassie received an outpour of support in her comment section, with thousands of people sending their love. Jamaican singer, Sevana commented, stating that Cassie is a strength to women everywhere.

The footage of Diddy’s abuse matched the allegations made in the 37-year-old’s singer lawsuit, filed in November of last year.
