Former assistant of Diddy reveals lack of shock over violent attack on ex Cassie Ventura: ‘I already knew he was capable of it’

Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs’ former assistant, Suzi Siegel, said she was not shocked after seeing newly surfaced footage of him violently assaulting his ex, Casandra ‘Cassie’ Ventura.

‘There was not one cell in my body that was surprised,’ Suzi Siegel admitted after the emergence of the harrowing video depicting the 54-year-old rapper attacking his ex-girlfriend.

She added she also wasn’t surprised by Ventura’s November since-settled lawsuit, which included said incident, against Combs although Siegel said she ‘never’ witnessed him abusing Me & You singer, 37, when she was working for him.

During her brief time as his assistant, Siegel — who worked for Diddy from 2008 to 2009 — noted that she ‘observed nothing that would lead me to believe’ he was abusive but said she believed he was ‘capable’ of such horrific behavior.

She told CNN on Friday that she ‘never saw him speak harshly to her or be abusive toward her or anything like that’ but added that she felt ‘sick and violently angry’ now by the recent developments.

And while Siegel was not surprised, the embattled rapper himself is ‘stunned’ the video emerged while Ventura was ‘triggered’ seeing it again, per an exclusive report by DailyMail.com.

As Combs’ assistant, Siegel said she was around the couple ‘a lot’.

She explained that she had started working for Combs just shortly after he started dating Ventura in 2007. 

However, during the time she was employed by him, she said she did not experience any mistreatment herself nor did she witness him abusing his then-girlfriend. 

‘I rode in limos with them, I went to parties with them,’ she recalled. 

‘I guess what I would say is, even though I never saw anything that could corroborate what’s in that lawsuit and what we just saw, there was not one cell in my body that was surprised,’ she continued.

‘I would say that I was around him a lot and I got a feeling for who he was,’ she said before noting that she ‘didn’t see anything that could get him in trouble.’ 

Even though she didn’t see the abuse herself, she said that she believed Combs was ‘capable’ of doing such shocking and terrifying things. 

‘I didn’t see that proof,’ she admitted. ‘Obviously, I saw it with the rest of America today. But when I saw it, I knew that it was something that he could be capable of.’

Siegel said that she believes there was a power imbalance in Combs relationship with Ventura and he took advantage of that.

‘But I think that [there’s a] power dynamic in a situation like that — especially her, at the beginning of her career, so young and beautiful and talented,’ she continued.

Prior to her conversation with CNN on Friday, the outlet released disturbing surveillance footage from 2016 depicting Combs violently assaulting Ventura at a hotel. 

Amid the outrage the video sparked, an insider also exclusively told DailyMail.com that Diddy ‘is terrified other damaging videos will emerge after he was filmed beating up his ex in a hotel hallway and is holding crisis talks with lawyers as his career implodes.’

The footage backs up former allegations Ventura had previously made in an explosive lawsuit she filed last November — which the exes ended up settling shortly thereafter.

The shocking and disturbing footage — over which the Los Angeles District Attorney cannot prosecute Combs due to the statute of limitations — also emerged amid a sex trafficking probe and multiple misconduct lawsuits against Combs.
