Combs' ex-girlfriend Casandra Ventura revealed that she was trapped in a cycle of abuse and violence for ten years. Combs, who also uses the stage name "Puff Daddy", denied the allegations and accused Cassie of trying to extort money from him.

Cassie said the rap producer raped and abused her for 10 years from the age of 19. "After years of silence and darkness, I am finally ready to tell my story," Cassie said.

Cassie said Combs signed her to his record label Bad Boy and "flooded Ventura with drugs and alcohol, causing her to fall into dangerous addictions that controlled her life."

Combs' lawyer, Benjamin Brafman, told BBC News that Cassie was demanding $30 million "under threat of writing a damaging book about their relationship". Brafman said the demand was "flatly rejected as blatant blackmail".

In response to Brafman, Cassie's lawyer, Doug Wigdor, said Combs offered him "an eight-figure payment to silence her and prevent this lawsuit from being filed." "She rejected Combs' efforts and decided to give a voice to all women suffering in silence," Wigdor said.

The lawsuit also said Combs said he planned to "blow up" a car belonging to another rap artist, Kid Cudi, because he was jealous of Cassie.
