Cassie Ventura seen with multiple bruises on red carpet just 2 days after brutal Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs attack

Cassie Ventura was photographed just two days after she was beaten and dragged by her ex Sean “Diddy” Combs in 2016.

The model seemingly had several bruises while walking the red carpet for her movie premiere of “The Perfect Match” on March 7, 2016, where the two arrived hand-in-hand.

For the carpet, Ventura wore a gold and black sleeveless dress which seemingly showed off a bruise on her upper left arm.

After an outfit change in which she rocked a green mini dress, various black and blue bruises could seemingly be seen on her legs.

Just two days before the premiere of the movie, Combs had attacked Ventura during a stay at the now-shuttered InterContinental Hotel in Century City, Calif. However, it’s unconfirmed if the bruising was due to the attack.

Footage of the horrifying incident was released by CNN Friday and it showed the troubled rapper violently throwing Ventur to the floor by her neck and then kicking her as she was heading for the elevator.

Diddy, now 54, proceeded to grab Ventura’s belongings from the floor, kick her again and drag her by her black hoodie across the ground.

After leaving her belongings in their hotel room, he returned to shove his then-girlfriend back to the floor. He then sat in a chair and hurled what appeared to be a vase at her.

“The gut-wrenching video has only further confirmed the disturbing and predatory behavior of Mr. Combs,” Ventura’s attorney, Douglas H. Wigdor, said in a statement to Page Six Friday.

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

The abuse seen in the video is referenced in the November 2023 abuse and rape lawsuit Ventura, who goes by the name of Cassie, leveraged against Combs.

According to the “Me & U” singer’s filing, the incident occurred after the Grammy winner became “extremely intoxicated” and punched her in the face.

Ventura’s lawsuit claimed that she tried escaping their hotel room after Combs fell asleep, but he noticed her absence and ran into the hallway while screaming at her.

“He grabbed at her and then took glass vases in the hallway and threw them at her, causing glass to crash around them as she ran to the elevator to escape,” the filing read.

Ventura, now 37, and Combs settled just one day after the lawsuit was filed.

Although Diddy — who is currently at the center of several sexual assault lawsuits — swiftly settled with Cassie, he maintains his innocence.

“Just so we’re clear, a decision to settle a lawsuit, especially in 2023, is in no way an admission of wrongdoing,” his attorney, Ben Brafman, said in a statement to Page Six at the time.

“Mr. Combs‘ decision to settle the lawsuit does not in any way undermine his flat-out denial of the claims. He is happy they got to a mutual settlement and wishes Ms. Ventura the best.”
