Sean 'Diddy' Combs' former head of security shared a cryptic Instagram Story after being named as a witness in Cassie's sexual abuse lawsuit.
In the lawsuit, she alleged that her former boss and ex had committed rape, as well as physical abuse. Cassie alleged in the lawsuit that he 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."
The musician 'vehemently denies' the allegations against him, his lawyer said.
Attorney Ben Brafman told UNILAD: "Mr. Combs vehemently denies these offensive and outrageous allegations.
"For the past 6 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.
"Despite withdrawing her initial threat, Ms. Ventura has now resorted to filing a lawsuit riddled with baseless and outrageous lies, aiming to tarnish Mr. Combs' reputation and seeking a pay day."
The case filing also listed Roger Bonds, Diddy's former head of security, as a witness to the alleged abuse of Cassie.
And on Saturday, Bonds took to Instagram to share a cryptic message.
Alongside photos of him separately posing with Diddy and Cassie, Bonds wrote: "This is not meant to be threats or snitching or anything like that against Cassie or Diddy or anyone else.
"This is me telling my truth as I truly remember it for 2 reasons only.
"1st because I have 4 daughters so on all dudes my truth as I seen it, saw it and was involved with it for yrs."
The former head of security also wrote: "IM WILLING TO TELL MY TEUTH [sic] BECAUSE FOR SO MANY YRS I WAS QUIET , Nothing matters now but FAMILY."
The post also included a screenshot of the lawsuit where Bonds was named as an alleged witness to an apparent incident in 2009.
This incident refers to a claim made by Cassie that Diddy had allegedly assaulted her as he'd learnt 'she was talking to another music manager at a club in LA', TMZ reports.
Cassie alleged that Diddy attacked her in the car after the pair had went to the club together and Bonds had allegedly attempted to break things up.
Since his story on Instagram, Bonds hasn't commented any further.
UNILAD has reached out to Diddy's representatives for comment.
One day after the lawsuit was issued (18 November), it was revealed that Cassie and Diddy had reached a financial settlement.
The pair revealed they've resolved the claims in the lawsuit to their 'mutual satisfaction'.
Brafman told Page Six that a subsequent settlement is 'no way an admission of wrongdoing'.
