Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs has issued a public apology for his “inexcusable” behaviour following the emergence of a video that allegedly shows him assaulting his then-girlfriend, Cassie Ventura. The footage, which CNN published on Friday, is dated March 5, 2016, and appears to depict the hip-hop mogul running after Ventura, grabbing her by the neck, throwing her to the floor, and later kicking her as she lay on the carpet. In his apology, Combs expressed deep regret for his actions and acknowledged the harm he caused, stating that there is no justification for his behaviour. He also emphasized his commitment to making amends and seeking help to prevent such incidents in the future.

Combs took to Instagram and admitted he’s “disgusted” with his actions.

“It’s so difficult to reflect on the darkest times in your life, but sometimes you got to do that,” Combs said in the new video. “I was f***ed up. I hit rock bottom, but I make no excuses. My behaviour on that video is inexcusable.”
