John Legend Is “Horrified” By The Allegations Against Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs

John Legend is speaking publicly for the first time about allegations against Sean “Diddy” Combs.

In a May 30th interview with CNN, Legend condemned Diddy after the disturbing video of the producer assaulting former girlfriend Cassie Ventura surfaced earlier this month.

“I was horrified by the descriptions that I read before the video evidence came out. And absolutely it’s something that needs to be brought to light when it happens.”

He continued, “My default stance is to believe women when they make these accusations and to make sure that we do whatever we can to support women” making them, Legend said. He added that his hope is “that they’re heard and that any kind of accountability and reparations can be made to make these women whole again.”

The 2016 attack was first referenced in a November 2023 lawsuit that Ventura brought against Diddy, whom she dated off and on from 2007 to 2018. The Bad Boys producer at the time denied the allegations outlined in Ventura’s lawsuit – which was settled out of court one day after it was filed – months prior to the video’s release

Legend’s remarks come months after collaborating with Diddy on a song. Alongside Babyface, Legend collaborated with Combs on a song titled “Kim Porter” – named after Diddy’s former partner with whom he shares three children – from his 2023 album “The Love Album: Off the Grid.”
