Sean “Diddy” Combs comments on violent video: “inexcusable behavior”

It’s a short but extremely violent video. It shows Sean Combs beating and kicking his then-girlfriend Cassie Ventura. Now the rapper apologizes in an Instagram video.

Shortly after the release of a shocking violent video showing rap star Sean “Diddy” Combs beating up his then-girlfriend Casandra “Cassie” Ventura, Combs has now spoken out about the incident and apologized. In a video on Instagram, he said he took “full responsibility” for his actions in the surveillance camera recording.

He was “disgusted” when he beat up Ventura then and he is the same now, Combs said. “I was completely screwed back then, completely down. But that doesn’t change anything: my behavior was inexcusable,” the rapper continued.

After the incident, he went into therapy and rehab. “I’m so sorry,” he explained with tears in his eyes. “I’m not asking for forgiveness. I’m really sorry.” This ends the Instagram clip.

Shortly before his post, the Los Angeles District Attorney’s Office released a statement. It states that Combs cannot be legally prosecuted for his attack due to the statute of limitations in the US state of California.

Los Angeles District Attorney’s Office issues statement

“We are aware of the video circulating online that purports to show Sean Combs assaulting a young woman in Los Angeles,” Los Angeles County District Attorney George Gascón said just hours after the surveillance video was made public. The prosecutor’s statement continued: “We find the images extremely disturbing and difficult to view. If the behavior shown occurred in 2016, we are unfortunately unable to press charges as the behavior occurred beyond the time period in which a crime of bodily harm can be prosecuted.”

In the state of California, the statute of limitations for domestic violence is five years. The statute of limitations for simple and serious bodily harm, however, is one year and three years respectively, reports “Deadline”. Combs’ alleged attack on his then-partner Ventura is said to have occurred on March 5, 2016, more than eight years ago.

Celebrities like 50 Cent condemn Sean Combs attack

Meanwhile, some prominent US stars have spoken out on social media and strongly condemned Combs’ alleged behavior. For example, rapper 50 Cent, who has been at loggerheads with Combs for a long time, posted a series of posts. The 48-year-old shared the violent video distributed by CNN on Instagram: “Well, I’m sure Puffy didn’t do it, he’s innocent, that doesn’t prove anything! That’s what his lawyers will say, God help us all “, followed by praying hands.

Supermodel Emily Ratajkowski also spoke up. On X (formerly Twitter): “Monster”.
