In a surprising turn of events, rapper and actor 50 Cent has responded to the recently unearthed video footage showing music mogul Diddy (Sean Combs) assaulting his ex-girlfriend, Cassie Ventura, back in 2016. The disturbing video, which has resurfaced, captures a violent altercation between the two celebrities and has sent shockwaves through the entertainment industry.

The video footage

The surveillance video, obtained by CNN, depicts a heated incident that took place at the now-closed InterContinental Hotel in Los Angeles on March 5, 2016. Cassie Ventura, wearing a black sweater with her hood up, is seen calling an elevator.

Diddy, clad only in a bath towel, chases after her down the hotel hallway. What follows is a disturbing sequence: Diddy strikes and yanks Cassie by her hair, throws her to the ground, and kicks her repeatedly. He then drags her back toward the hotel rooms, all while the security cameras capture the shocking scene.

50 Cent’s sarcastic take

Known for his candid and often humorous social media presence, 50 Cent didn’t hold back when reacting to the video. In a series of tweets, he sarcastically commented on Diddy’s behavior, highlighting the absurdity of the situation.

"Now I’m sure puffy didn’t do it, he is innocent this proves nothing ! This is what his lawyers are gonna say, God help us all 🙏🏿"

50 Cent’s tweets have garnered attention from fans and fellow celebrities alike, sparking discussions about domestic violence, accountability, and the power dynamics within the music industry.

Industry reactions

Other notable figures have also weighed in on the video. Aubrey O’Day, singer and former member of the girl group Danity Kane, expressed her shock and concern. Emily Ratajkowski, the model and actress, called the footage “gut-wrenching.” Hollywood stars, including those who have worked closely with Diddy, are grappling with the disturbing images and questioning how such behavior could go unchecked for years.

Cassie Ventura had previously alleged in a lawsuit that Diddy assaulted her physically and emotionally during their relationship. The video footage now serves as visual evidence corroborating her claims. While the two settled the civil suit shortly after it was filed, the resurfaced video has reignited discussions about accountability and the treatment of women in the entertainment industry.


As the video continues to circulate online, the public’s reaction remains divided. Some demand justice, while others dismiss it as old news. Regardless, the incident serves as a stark reminder that fame and fortune do not exempt anyone from the consequences of their actions. The entertainment world watches closely as this disturbing chapter unfolds, and the question remains: How will Diddy address the video and its implications? Only time will tell.
