Sean “Diddy” Combs is facing allegations of sexual assault and physical abuse by ex-girlfriend Cassie.

Cassie (real name: Casandra Ventura) filed a sex trafficking and sexual assault lawsuit against Combs in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York, according to court documents obtained by USA TODAY. The complaint alleges that Cassie, who began a professional and sexual relationship with the rap mogul when she was 19, was trafficked, raped, and viciously beaten by Combs for a decade.

“After years in silence and darkness, I am finally ready to tell my story, and to speak up on behalf of myself and for the benefit of other women who face violence and abuse in their relationships,” Cassie said in a statement. “With the expiration of New York’s Adult Survivors Act fast approaching, it became clear that this was an opportunity to speak up about the trauma I have experienced and that I will be recovering from for the rest of my life.”

Cassie alleges in the lawsuit that Combs “took control” of her life, ranging from her healthcare to her career opportunities, and plied her with drugs and alcohol. Combs also allegedly forced Cassie to perform sexual intercourse with male prostitutes who he hired and recorded their sexual encounters.

“No human should have to endure what Ms. Ventura has endured,” said Cassie’s attorney Douglas Wigdor. “Her ability and willingness to speak up against the abuse she suffered, and seeking to hold accountable her abuser and those who enabled the abuse, is a testament to her strength and resilience.”
