Singer Cassie’s legal action against music producer Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs, accusing him of beatings and abuse, has been officially dismissed after reaching a settlement.
A New York court, as reported by TMZ after reviewing legal documents on Monday, stated, ‘Pursuant to an agreement between the parties, Plaintiff hereby dismisses this action, with prejudice and without costs or fees to either party.’
The dismissal, filed with prejudice, means Cassie cannot file the suit again.
The settlement was disclosed Friday, following the lawsuit’s filing, through a statement from attorney Douglas Wigdor, representing Cassie, whose full name is Casandra Ventura.
While no specific terms of the agreement were disclosed, Ventura, Combs, and Wigdor conveyed in the lawyer’s email that no further statements would be issued beyond those made by the involved parties.
Ventura, in her statement, expressed, ‘I have decided to resolve this matter amicably on terms that I have some level of control. I want to thank my family, fans, and lawyers for their unwavering support.’
