Aubrey O’Day reacts to video of Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs brutally assaulting Cassie Ventura in hotel

Aubrey O’Day showed support for Sean “Diddy” Combs’ victims after a damning video of the music mogul beating his ex Cassie Ventura in a hotel was released Friday.

The former Danity Kane member wrote via X Friday alongside a clip of the footage, “the picture is getting a lot more clear for you all I can imagine.. abuse survivors or anyone that triggers easily might not want to watch (images are disturbing). #Cassie #diddy #kimporter prayers up for all his victims.”

O’Day, 40, also reposted a social media user’s reaction to the horrifying video, which read, “he is absolutely sickening.

The damning surveillance footage showed Combs dragging and beating his ex Ventura. CNN

“Cassie, you were very brave to take on someone like Diddy who treated you in such an abhorrent way. I hope any and everyone who has been affected by his behavior finds justice,” the fan continued. “@AubreyODay , you’ve been telling us for YEARS that he wasn’t right. #AubreyWasRight.”

The “Damaged” singer added in her post, “Prayers up for all his victims.”

O’Day has been a vocal adversary of Diddy’s ever since he fired her from her hit girl group in 2008.

When Ventura, 37, filed a bombshell lawsuit against the Bad Boy Records exec in November 2023 — in which she accused him of rape, physical assault and other disturbing claims like forcing her to have sex with male prostitutes while he filmed — O’Day was one of the first people to support the “Me & U” singer.

The “Making the Band 3” alum wrote via her Instagram Stories at the time, “Been trynna tell y’all for years. Prayers up for this queen @cassie.”

Combs, 54, vehemently denied Ventura’s allegations, with his lawyer, Ben Brafman, telling Page Six that the claims were “offensive and outrageous.”

“For the past six months, Mr. Combs has been subjected to Ms. Ventura’s persistent demand of $30 million, under the threat of writing a damaging book about their relationship, which was unequivocally rejected as blatant blackmail,” the attorney further alleged.

“Ms. Ventura has now resorted to filing a lawsuit riddled with baseless and outrageous lies, aiming to tarnish Mr. Combs’s reputation and seeking a payday.”

Despite the denial, Combs opted to settle the suit with Ventura in seemingly record-breaking time just one day after the initial paperwork was filed for an undisclosed amount.

“I have decided to resolve this matter amicably on terms that I have some level of control,” the “Long Way 2 Go” singer said in a statement at the time.

“I want to thank my family, fans and lawyers for their unwavering support.”

After CNN obtained the shocking hotel video Friday, showing Combs smacking, kicking and dragging Ventura around a hallway in 2016, the “King of Hearts” singer’s lawyer, Douglas H. Wigdor, released a new statement to Page Six.

“The gut-wrenching video has only further confirmed the disturbing and predatory behavior of Mr. Combs,” Wigdor told us.

“Words cannot express the courage and fortitude that Ms. Ventura has shown in coming forward to bring this to light.”

O’Day, for her part, has alluded that there is much more damaging information about Combs that has not come out.

When an X user speculated that the “I’ll Be Missing You” rapper has a “much bigger problem” than the surveillance clip, the “Show Stopper” singer chimed in in a separate post, “beyond bigger sadly.”

O’Day has accused her ex-boss of offering publishing rights to her music in exchange for her silence and claimed on the “Call Her Daddy” podcast recently that she was fired because she didn’t do “what was expected of [her] — not talent-wise, but in other areas.”

In addition to being sued for sexual misconduct by several other women, Combs is under investigation by the FBI in connection to sex-trafficking allegations.
