The whirlwind surrounding Combs first boiled over in 2023, when his ex-girlfriend, singer Cassie Ventura, filed a $30 million lawsuit against the New York native, detailing his alleged violence and misconduct during the relationship. The lawsuit was settled out of court, with Ventura receiving an undisclosed sum as part of the agreement.
