Sean Combs has already settled lawsuit filed by former partner that alleged sexual and physical assault

Sean 'Diddy' Combs has already settled a lawsuit filed last week by his former partner Cassie Ventura who accused him of sexual and physical assault.

Confirming that a settlement had been reached the day after her litigation was initiated, Ventura said in a statement: “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".

Combs said in a separate statement: “We have decided to resolve this matter amicably. I wish Cassie and her family all the best".

Ventura's lawsuit set out a series of allegations against Combs, who also signed the singer and actress to his label. Those allegations included rape and other sexual assaults and physical violence, as well as claims in relation to the rapper's use of firearms.

It added that: "Ms Ventura has now fully escaped Mr Combs, but the harm that the assaults and sexual abuse he caused her to experience for nearly a decade will forever haunt her. She has required intensive medical and psychological care to recover from the trauma she lived through".

A legal rep for Combs initially hit back at the lawsuit confirming that his client "vehemently denies these offensive and outrageous allegations". The attorney added that the lawsuit had been filed after Combs knocked back a demand from Ventura for a $30 million pay off under the threat of her writing a book about their relationship, which lasted for more than a decade.

Ventura's lawyer then hit back at those claims, insisting that it was Combs who had proposed an eight figure payment in order to "silence" his client and "prevent the filing of this lawsuit".

Terms of the settlement that was quickly reached on Friday are not known. After that agreement had been confirmed, Ventura's attorney told media: “I am very proud of Ms Ventura for having the strength to go public with her lawsuit. She ought to be commended for doing so".
