Cassie’s lawsuit against Diddy is officially dismissed after they reached settlement
A lawsuit by singer Cassie containing allegations of beatings and abuse by music producer Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs has been dismissed after it was settled.
‘Pursuant to an agreement between the parties, Plaintiff hereby dismisses this action, with prejudice and without costs or fees to either party,’ a New York court said Monday, TMZ reported after reviewing legal docs.
Because the dismissal was filed with prejudice, Cassie will not be able to file the suit a second time.
The settlement was announced Friday – a day after the lawsuit was filed – in a statement sent by attorney Douglas Wigdor, who represents Cassie, whose full name is Casandra Ventura.
The statement said they had reached a deal ‘to their mutual satisfaction’ Friday evening, but no terms of the agreement were disclosed and no further statements would be issued beyond those made by Ventura, Combs and Wigdor in the email distributed by the lawyer.
‘I have decided to resolve this matter amicably on terms that I have some level of control,’ Ventura said in her statement. ‘I want to thank my family, fans and lawyers for their unwavering support.’
Combs said: ‘We have decided to resolve this matter amicably. I wish Cassie and her family all the best. Love.’
