Cassie Ventura’s husband has condemned Sean “Diddy” Combs after CNN released surveillance footage of the rapper appearing to assault the singer in a hotel hallway in 2016.

The outlet obtained footage reportedly showing the 54-year-old rapper, who was formerly known as Puff Daddy, brutally kicking and dragging his then-girlfriend, Cassie.

The disturbing altercation - dated March 5, 2016 - comes after the 37-year-old 'Me & U' singer filed an explosive federal lawsuit against him in November 2023, accusing him of physically and sexually abusing her for years.

The incident took place at the now-defunct InterContinental Hotel in Century City, Los Angeles, as verified by CNN.

The leaked video shows the music executive exiting a room at the hotel room while holding a towel around his waist. He then runs after Ventura, grabs her by the back of the neck, and then throws her to the floor near the hotel's elevators.

With the 'Long Way To Go' singer lying on the ground, Combs can be seen picking up her items from the floor.

Ventura's attempt to regain composure is met with further aggression from the father-of-seven, who, still donning a towel and socks, appears to shove her before launching objects in her direction.

CNN reported that Ventura declined to comment on the shocking video, however, her attorney, Douglas H. Wigdor, issued a statement on the footage's significance and shed light on Ventura's courage in speaking out about the alleged misconduct perpetrated by Diddy.

"The gut-wrenching video has only further confirmed the disturbing and predatory behavior of Mr. Combs," Wigdor said. "Words cannot express the courage and fortitude that Ms. Ventura has shown in coming forward to bring this to light.”

Cassie's husband, Alex Fine, penned an open letter shared on Instagram, standing in solidarity with his wife, and condemning violence against women and girls.

Fine, who has been married to the musician since 2019, penned: “Men who hit women aren’t men. Men who enable it and protect those people aren’t men."

Read Fine's post below:

“As men, violence against women shouldn’t be inevitable, check your brothers, your friends, and your family," he continued. "Our daughters, sisters, mothers, and wives should feel protected and loved. Hold the women in your life with the upmost regard. Men who hurt women hate women.”

Fine emphasized the need to believe women who come forward and speak about domestic violence, as he directly addressed survivors of sexual assault and abuse.

“To all the survivors you’re not alone, and there are men and women who care only for your well-being and safety. We want you to succeed and flourish,” Fine said. “To all the women and children, I’m sorry you live in a world where you’re not protected, and you don’t feel equal. I want to raise my daughters in a world where they are safe and loved.”

He concluded his letter by turning his attention towards “abusers," writing: “You’re done, you’re not safe anymore, you’re not protected anymore, the men by your side are just as weak, you’re so miserable with yourself that death would be considered a kindness."

Combs is currently facing five other civil lawsuits accusing him of a range of sexual misconduct and other illegal activity.

Back in March, the Department of Homeland Security raided two of the rapper’s houses in Los Angeles and Miami. They were looking for devices such as laptops, flash drives, and anything that would connect Combs with the allegations.

The rapper has strongly denied all of the allegations against him. He has not been formally charged.
