Cassie’s husband reacts to Diddy’s video and defends women

Alex Fine has an important message to send.

Fine, Cassie Ventura’s husband of the past four years, witnessed this week the same disturbing video that is making stomachs turn on the Internet.

We’re referring, of course, to the 2016 surveillance footage of Diddy assaulting Cassie in a hotel hallway.

Released by CNN on May 17, this video appears to corroborate allegations Cassie made in a lawsuit against her ex-boyfriend last year… in which she said Diddy grabbed her, threw her to the ground, and kicked her numerous times.

“The heartbreaking video has only further confirmed Mr. Combs’ disturbing and predatory behavior,” Douglas H. Wigdor, Cassie’s attorney, said in response to the video, adding this week:

“Words cannot express the courage and strength that Ms. Ventura has shown by coming forward to bring this to light.

Cassie, who dated Diddy on and off between 2007 and 2018, sued the Bad Boy Records founder in November 2023, alleging that he subjected her to years of physical violence and sexual abuse.

Meanwhile, Fine has written a letter on Instagram that begins as follows:

“Men who hit women are not men. The men who allow it and protect these people are not men.

“As men, violence against women should not be inevitable, check on your brothers, your friends and your family.

“Our daughters, sisters, mothers and wives should feel protected and loved. Hold the women in your life with the highest regard. “Men who hurt women hate them.”

He continued:

“To all survivors, find the men and women who help and love you. For all the survivors, their stories are real and people believe them.

“To all survivors, you are not alone and there are men and women who only care about your well-being and safety. We want you to succeed and prosper.

“To all women and children, I am sorry that you live in a world where you are not protected and do not feel equal. “I want to raise my daughters in a world where they are safe and loved.”

It’s worth noting at this point that Diddy has been accused by several women of sex trafficking.

Fine, for his part, concluded his post by speaking directly to “the abusers” and wrote:

“You’re done, you’re no longer safe, you’re no longer protected, the men at your side are just as weak, you’re so miserable with yourself that death would be considered a kindness.”

Fine and Cassie married in August 2019 and share two daughters: Frankie, 4, and Sunny, 3.

One day after filing her lawsuit last November, Cassie reached an undisclosed settlement with Diddy, although a lawyer for the music mogul said the settlement was “in no way an admission of wrongdoing.”

We now feel safe in saying that Diddy acted VERY badly when it came to Cassie, and probably other women as well.
