Following recent abuse allegations, Kesha has replaced Diddy's name from the iconic song lyrics as part of the 2009 classic 'Tik Tok'.

Sean 'Diddy' Combs has not left the headlines in recent days after a rape and abuse lawsuit hanged over his head.

R&B singer and dancer Cassie - real name Casandra Ventura - filed the case against Diddy on Thursday (16 November).

The pair began a professional relationship in 2005, when she was 19 and he was 37-years-old, after he signed her to his label Bad Boy Records.

The former couple went on to date for over a decade before going their separate ways.

In the lawsuit, she alleged that her former boss had committed rape, as well as physical abuse.

Well, since the allegations were put into the public domain, singer Kesha appeared to cut out her Diddy reference in 'Tik Tok' during a recent performance in Oakland, California.

Typically, the opening line begins with: "Wake up in the morning feeling like P. Diddy."

But during her performance of the track on Friday (17 November), Kesha instead sang: "Wake up in the morning feeling just like me."

It comes after the lawsuit was settled just a day after it was filed last week.

Since then, Diddy's lawyer has claimed the settlement is 'no way an admission of wrongdoing'.

Cassie alleged in the lawsuit that her ex was 'prone to uncontrollable rage'.

The lawsuit also claimed that Diddy had 'frequently beat Ms. Ventura savagely' throughout the duration of their relationship.

"Over the years that Mr. Combs abused Ms. Ventura physically and sexually, she again and again tried to escape his tight hold over her life," the lawsuit alleged.

"Every time she hid, Mr. Combs’s vast network of corporations and affiliated entities found her, and those who worked for Mr. Combs’s companies implored her to return to him."

Cassie also claimed that Diddy had allegedly raped her in her apartment back in 2018, insisting she 'told him to stop and attempted to push him away'.

On Friday (17 November), it was announced Diddy and Cassie had reached a settlement over the dispute with the pair reaching a 'mutual satisfaction'.

In a statement, Cassie explained her decision to accept the settlement, saying: "I have decided to resolve this matter amicably on terms that I have some level of control.

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

Diddy also spoke out, insisting that they had opted to 'resolve this matter amicably'.
