Grand opening, grand closing. Before most of the public could read through Cassie’s (real name Casandra Ventura) explosive 35-page civil lawsuit against her famous ex-partner, Diddy (real name Sean Combs), the case is over. On Friday, November 17, The New York Times revealed that the lawsuit, in which Cassie accused Diddy of rape, ongoing physical abuse, and even blowing up Kid Cudi’s car, had been settled.
Due to how fast the pair reached an agreement, people wonder how much money Diddy settled for with Cassie. Unfortunately, the financial details aren’t known at this time. Due to the claims in the suit, it would be safe to assume that both parties signed a non-disclosure agreement, preventing them from sharing the total number. Initially, Diddy’s lawyer, Ben Brafman, told the outlet, “Ventura’s persistent demand of $30 million, under the threat of writing a damaging book about their relationship, which was unequivocally rejected as blatant blackmail.” This led the public to believe Cassie asked for that amount from the courts. Although she did seek injunctive, declaratory, and monetary relief as well as court fees, in the official filing documents, no set amount was listed.
Cassie and Diddy shared a statement when their settlement was announced. “I have decided to resolve this matter amicably on terms that I have some level of control,” said Cassie, according to The New York Times. “I want to thank my family, fans, and lawyers for their unwavering support.”
Diddy followed that up with his statement, saying, “We have decided to resolve this matter amicably. I wish Cassie and her family all the best. Love.”
