In a shock­ing turn of events, Sean “Did­dy” Combs has admit­ted to phys­i­cal­ly assault­ing his ex-girl­friend, Cassie, in a 2016 inci­dent. The music mogul’s con­fes­sion comes after CNN released video footage of the attack, which shows Combs punch­ing, kick­ing, and shov­ing the R&B singer in a hotel hallway.

Address­ing the inci­dent in a video state­ment post­ed to his social media accounts, Did­dy expressed remorse, stat­ing, “I take full respon­si­bil­i­ty for my actions in that video. I was dis­gust­ed then when I did it. I’m dis­gust­ed now.” He went on to acknowl­edge that his behav­ior was “inex­cus­able” and that he has sought pro­fes­sion­al help, includ­ing ther­a­py and reha­bil­i­ta­tion, to address his actions.

Cassie, whose legal name is Cas­san­dra Ven­tu­ra, had pre­vi­ous­ly sued Combs in Novem­ber, alleg­ing years of sex­u­al, phys­i­cal, and emo­tion­al abuse. The law­suit was set­tled the next day, but the rev­e­la­tion of the video footage has led to intense scruti­ny and addi­tion­al law­suits against the hip-hop mogul, as well as a fed­er­al crim­i­nal sex-traf­fick­ing investigation.

In his apol­o­gy, Did­dy expressed his deep remorse, say­ing, “It’s so dif­fi­cult to reflect on the dark­est times in your life, but some­times you got to do that. I had to ask God for his mer­cy and grace. I’m so sor­ry. But I’m com­mit­ted to be a bet­ter man each and every day. I’m not ask­ing for for­give­ness. I’m tru­ly sorry.”

The secu­ri­ty cam­era footage, dat­ed March 5, 2016, close­ly resem­bles the inci­dent described in Ven­tu­ra’s law­suit. How­ev­er, nei­ther Combs nor his rep­re­sen­ta­tives have addressed the spe­cif­ic alle­ga­tion that he paid the hotel $50,000 for the video imme­di­ate­ly after the incident.

Despite the seri­ous­ness of the alle­ga­tions, Combs is not in dan­ger of crim­i­nal pros­e­cu­tion, as the statutes of lim­i­ta­tions for the assault and bat­tery charges he would like­ly face have expired.

As the music indus­try and the pub­lic grap­ple with the impli­ca­tions of this scan­dal, Did­dy’s admis­sion and apol­o­gy serve as a sober­ing reminder of the need for account­abil­i­ty and the impor­tance of address­ing issues of domes­tic vio­lence and abuse with­in the enter­tain­ment indus­try and beyond.
