Note: This post mentions sexual assault and abuse.
According to Cassie, the music mogul began asserting control over her life shortly after they met when she was 19. The suit lists many accusations including sexual battery, sexual assault, and violations of New York City’s gender-motivated violence law.
In a statement shared with the New York Times, Cassie said, "After years in silence and darkness, I am finally ready to tell my story, and to speak up on behalf of myself and for the benefit of other women who face violence and abuse in their relationships."
Now, an old interview with Kimora Lee Simmons has resurfaced in the wake of Cassie's allegations.
In a 2004 New York Magazine interview, Kimora recalled an alleged incident with Diddy. The article states, "There was a nasty cloudburst when Kimora said something to Combs, and he threatened to hit her."
"And I was pregnant!" she said. "The moron!"
After his outburst, Diddy reportedly got on his knees and publicly apologized.
Many people expressed their shock on social media:

And now, Kimora herself is joining the conversation. A few hours ago, she posted a cryptic message on her Instagram story, seemingly in response to the Diddy allegations. "As you sow, so shall you reap," she wrote with a heart emoji.
