Pictures obtained by Page Six showed the rapper looking stressed while sitting outside his Miami home on Saturday, Nov. 18. Dressed casually in a T-shirt and sweatpants, he was accompanied by his chief of staff, Kristina Khorram, who showed him something on her phone before Diddy laid down on an outdoor couch. He was observed taking a lengthy phone call and pacing around his property.

This sighting marked Diddy’s first public appearance since Cassie’s lawsuit alleging years of physical, sexual, and mental abuse, filed on Thursday, Nov. 16. Cassie accused Diddy of subjecting her to various forms of abuse, including coercing her into sexual encounters with male prostitutes while he observed and abused her physically when she was just 19 years old.

Amidst vehement denials from Diddy’s attorney, Ben Brafman, regarding the allegations, the explosive lawsuit was settled within 24 hours of Cassie’s filing. Both parties released statements expressing a resolution reached “amicably,” with Cassie acknowledging the support received and Diddy wishing her and her family well.

Brafman later clarified that the settlement doesn’t imply guilt, emphasizing that settling a lawsuit doesn’t equate to admitting wrongdoing, affirming Diddy’s continued denial of the claims while expressing contentment with the mutual resolution.
