Sean "Diddy" Coombs has been hit with claims of rape and abuse by his ex-girlfriend Cassandra Ventura, who says he began targeting her when she was just 19 years old.
Recording artist, model and actress Cassandra, better known as Cassie in the US, has filed a civil lawsuit against P Diddy where she alleges the abuse, although the rapper has strongly denied the claims.
Cassandra, now 37, says in her claims filed with Manhattan's Federal District Court that when she was 19, Diddy signed her to his label Bad Boy Records and alleges that he "lured (her) into an ostentatious, fast-paced, and drug-fuelled lifestyle, and into a romantic relationship with him." In court papers seen by The Mirror, Cassandra also highlights a power imbalance with Diddy, who is nearly 20 years older than her at 54 and is a well known, powerful figure in the entertainment industry.
Cassandra, who has now split from the star, alleges that he supplied her with drugs and forced her to have sex with prostitutes while he filmed it.Read more on ok.co.uk
