LOS ANGELES (NEWSnet/AP) — Security video aired by CNN appears to show Sean “Diddy” Combs attacking singer Cassie in a Los Angeles hotel hallway in 2016.

Footage appears to show Combs punching, kicking, shoving and dragging Cassie, then throwing a vase in her direction.

The security camera video, dated March 5, 2016, resembles the description of an incident at an InterContinental Hotel in Los Angeles described in a lawsuit filed in November 2023.

The lawsuit alleges Combs paid the hotel $50,000 for the security video. CNN did not say how it obtained the video, but noted it verified the location it was shot by comparing footage to publicly available images of InterContinental Hotel.

Cassie's lawsuit was settled a day after it was filed, but spurred intense scrutiny of Combs, with several more lawsuits filed in the following months.
