Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs Apologizes for 2016 Video of Alleged Attack

Sean “Diddy” Combs apologized on Sunday morning for a recently surfaced 2016 video which sees him allegedly attacking his ex girlfriend.

“It’s so difficult to reflect on the darkest times in your life, but sometimes you got to do that,” Diddy said on Instagram. “I was fucked up — I hit rock bottom — but I make no excuses. My behavior on that video is inexcusable.”

The video, first obtained by CNN and released Friday, showed the music mogul run out of a hotel room in a towel, chasing a woman who appears to be Ventura. He grabs grabs her by the back of the neck and throws her on the floor, before turning to kick her.

As the video continues, he kicks her again, even though she is not moving, and drags her by the sweatshirt. He walks off but returns and shoves her, later pulling an object from a table and throwing it toward her. Finally, he walks away again.

“I take full responsibility for my actions in that video,” Combs said Sunday. “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.”

On Friday, the Los Angeles District Attorney said in a statement that they are “aware of the video that has been circulating online” and that they “find the images extremely disturbing and difficult to watch,” but that “we would be unable to charge as the conduct would have occurred beyond the timeline where a crime of assault can be prosecuted.”

Combs and Ventura share two daughters. In a civil lawsuit filed in New York in November, she accused the rapper of repeatedly raping and physically abusing her for nearly a decade. In the suit, which also names his label, Bad Boy Records, and Sony Music, Ventura said she was “trapped by Mr. Combs in a cycle of abuse, violence and sex trafficking;” the filing recalls several instances where she claimed Combs “punched, beat, kicked and stomped” on her. 

Ventura and Combs settled the case shortly after she filed her lawsuit.
