Diddy’s former makeup artist Mylah Morales recently claimed to Extra that she witnessed some of the abuse Cassie endured during her relationship with the rapper. She described an incident that took place over a decade ago at the Beverly Hills Hotel, where Diddy allegedly asked for Cassie aggressively. Morales mentioned hearing some commotion in the bedroom but didn’t witness the actual events. When she saw Cassie later, the singer had bruises, including knots on her head and a black eye. Morales took Cassie home with her and called a doctor friend to treat her, as they were too afraid to bring her to the hospital due to Diddy’s power and influence.

Morales also expressed fear of Diddy, stating that they were always scared of what would happen to them if they spoke out about the abuse. Diddy issued an apology on social media after security camera footage from 2016 showed him assaulting his then-girlfriend in a hotel hallway. In the video, Diddy admitted to hitting rock bottom and seeking professional help, therapy, and rehab. He acknowledged his inexcusable actions in the video and expressed disgust at himself. Diddy stated that he was committed to being a better man and seeking mercy and grace from God, while also emphasizing that he was not asking for forgiveness.

Recent reports have surfaced of another woman, Crystal McKinney, filing a lawsuit against Diddy, accusing him of sexually assaulting her in 2003. This adds to the allegations against the rapper and raises concerns about his history of abusive behavior. The situation has sparked discussions about domestic violence and the importance of supporting victims. If you or someone you know is experiencing domestic violence, the National Domestic Violence Hotline is available for confidential support.

The claims made by Morales and McKinney against Diddy shed light on the darker side of fame and power dynamics in relationships. The fear and intimidation experienced by those close to Diddy reveal a troubling pattern of abuse and manipulation. Diddy’s apology and acknowledgment of his past actions are steps towards accountability but do not erase the harm caused. The ongoing legal battles and public scrutiny surrounding Diddy’s behavior serve as a cautionary tale about the repercussions of unchecked power and the importance of speaking out against abuse.

The courage of individuals like Morales and McKinney in coming forward with their experiences highlights the need for accountability and support for survivors of abuse. The conversation surrounding domestic violence and sexual assault must continue to address the systemic issues that enable such behavior. By amplifying the voices of survivors and holding perpetrators accountable, we can work towards creating a safer and more equitable society. It is important to listen to and believe survivors, provide resources for those in need, and advocate for a culture of respect and consent in all relationships.
