Steph Curry becomes latest star to unfollow Diddy on social media

Diddy admitted to beating ex-girlfriend & popstar Cassie after facing backlashA federal sex-trafficking investigation led to authorities raiding his homes

Steph Curry has unfollowed Diddy on Instagram after the turmoiled U.S. rapper has admitted to beating his ex-girlfriend and popstar Cassie amid abuse allegations.

According to celebrity and entertainment-focused X account 'Say Cheese!', the NBA player removed Diddy from his following base on X and Instagram on Tuesday - just a month after Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes did the same thing.

Last week, Diddie shared a video of himself apologizing for beating his ex-partner Cassie, whom he dated from 2007 to 2018, in a hotel hallway in 2016 after CNN released footage of the attack, saying he was 'truly sorry' and describing his actions as 'inexcusable.'

The security video shows Combs, wearing only a white towel, punching and kicking Cassie, an R&B singer, before shoving and dragging her, and throwing a vase in her direction.

Cassie, whose legal name is Cassandra Ventura, sued Combs in November over what she said was years of sexual, physical and emotional abuse. The suit was settled the next day, but spurred intense scrutiny of Combs, with several more lawsuits filed in the following months, along with a federal criminal sex-trafficking investigation that led authorities to raid Combs' mansions in Los Angeles and Miami.

He had denied the allegations in the lawsuits, but neither he nor his representatives had responded to the newly emerged video until Sunday.

'It's so difficult to reflect on the darkest times in your life, but sometimes you got to do that,' Diddy says on the video. He adds, 'I went and I sought out professional help. I got into going to therapy, going to rehab. 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.'

Combs is looking somber and wearing a T-shirt in the selfie-style apology video, and appears to be on a patio. It is the hip-hop mogul's most direct response and first apology after six months of allegations that have threatened his reputation and career.

In December, after Ventura and at least three other women had filed lawsuits against him, Combs posted a statement on Instagram broadly denying the truth of all of them.

'Let me absolutely clear. I did not do any of the awful things being alleged,' that post said.

The security camera video, dated March 5, 2016, closely resembles the description of an incident at an InterContinental Hotel in the Century City area of Los Angeles described in Ventura' lawsuit.

Combs is not in danger of being criminally prosecuted for the beating. The statutes of limitations for the assault and battery charges he would be likely to face expired years ago.

The same is true of many of the allegations in the lawsuits, but the federal investigators following Combs are likely looking for potential crimes they can bring under the law.

Ventura signed to Diddy's label in 2005. The two had an on-again-off-again romantic relationship for more than a decade.
