Rapper Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs and singer Cassie have settled a lawsuit alleging abuse – one day after she sued the powerful music producer.
The R&B singer – real name Casandra Ventura – had alleged that she was trafficked, raped, plied with drugs and viciously beaten by the rapper on many occasions over the course of 10 years.
In a statement, a lawyer for Combs had said he “vehemently denies these offensive and outrageous allegations”.
The settlement was announced in a release sent by lawyer Douglas Wigdor, who represents Cassie.
The release said they had reached a deal to their “mutual satisfaction” on Friday evening, but no terms of the agreement were disclosed.
