Sean “Diddy” Combs issued an apology Sunday morning for attacking his ex-girlfriend Cassie Ventura following the release of the violent 2016 footage. The 54-year-old rapper took to social media to express his guilt, calling his actions “inexcusable.” In the harrowing video released by CNN on Friday, the Last Night singer was seen attacking the 37-year-old singer after chasing her down at the InterContinental Hotel in Century City, Los Angeles.

Following the release of the now-viral video, Diddy faced severe criticism from netizens. On Sunday, the Coming Home hitmaker broke his silence with an apology video on Instagram.

“It’s so difficult to reflect on the darkest times in your life, but sometimes you got to do that,” he said, adding, “I was f**ed up. I hit rock bottom — but I make no excuses. My behaviour on that video is inexcusable.”

The video then shows that as Ventura tried to get up, he approached her again and shoved her. Combs then sat in a chair and threw an object on her, which he grabbed from the nearby table.

Combs then went on to say that he takes “full responsibility for my actions in that video, I’m disgusted.”

The Bad Boy For Life rapper continued, “I was disgusted then when I did it and I’m disgusted now,” adding, “I went and I sought out professional help, started going to therapy and rehab, had to ask god for his mercy and grace.”

As the video was released, an attorney for Ventura said, “The gut-wrenching video has only further confirmed the disturbing and predatory behavior of Mr. Combs.” “Words cannot express the courage and fortitude that Ms. Ventura has shown in coming forward to bring this to light,” lawyer Douglas H. Wigdor added, per New York Post.
