50 Cent has responded to the footage of Sean "Diddy" Combs allegedly attacking his former girlfriend, Cassie Ventura, whom he dated on and off for over a decade.

In documents from November 2023, the 37-year-old singer accused Diddy of forcing his way into her home and raping her toward the end of their romance, as per Page Six.

She also claimed that the rapper made her perform sex acts on male prostitutes while being filmed, also accusing him of “frequently beat [her] savagely.”

"She again and again tried to escape his tight hold over her life,” the lawsuit stated. "Every time she hid, Mr. Combs’s vast network of corporations and affiliated entities found her, and those who worked for Mr. Combs’s companies implored her to return."

At the time, he denied all the claims but due to surveillance footage that was recently obtained by CNN from 2016, he was forced to address an alleged incident.

In the video, the 'Finna Get Loose' artist was allegedly seen grabbing, kicking, and dragging Ventura in a hotel in Los Angeles.

"I take full responsibility for my actions in that video. I was disgusted then when I did it. I’m disgusted now,” he said in the video statement posted on Sunday (May 19).

"It’s so difficult to reflect on the darkest times in your life, but sometimes you got to do that," he continued, before adding: "I was disgusted then when I did it. I’m disgusted now. I went and I sought out professional help. I got into going to therapy, going to rehab. I had to ask God for his mercy and grace. I’m so sorry.

"But I’m committed to be a better man each and every day. I’m not asking for forgiveness. I’m truly sorry," he concluded.

In the wake of the drama, 50 Cent, also known by his real name Curtis Jackson, took to Instagram to respond to the clip writing: "This is not going to work, who is advising him right now? SMH bad move."

Prior to the rapper posting his response, the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office released a statement emphasizing the reasons why it's going to be difficult to prosecute Diddy over this footage.

"We are aware of the video that has been circulating online allegedly depicting Sean Combs assaulting a young woman in Los Angeles. We find the images extremely disturbing and difficult to watch," they started their statement as per Entertainment Tonight.

"If the conduct depicted occurred in 2016, unfortunately, we would be unable to charge as the conduct would have occurred beyond the timeline where a crime of assault can be prosecuted," the statement continued.

"As of today, law enforcement has not presented a case related to the attack depicted in the video against Mr. Combs, but we encourage anyone who has been a victim or witness to a crime to report it to law enforcement or reach out to our office for support from our Bureau of Victims Services," they added.
