Sean “Puffy” Combs will not be prosecuted for attacking former girlfriend Casandra “Cassie” Ventura at a hotel in 2016.

The incident happened at the InterContinental Hotel in Century City on March 5, 2016. California’s statute of limitations on simple assault and aggravated assault have expired.

In her lawsuit filed in November, Cassie said Combs paid the hotel $50,000 to keep the video from coming out.

A former FBI agent claims Combs settled the lawsuit in one day because of the hotel video.

Men on a manosphere board debated whether Combs was justified in his actions. The majority said domestic violence is never the answer.


One man wrote: “He seemed very concerned about what was in the bag… That don’t give him an excuse to do what he did…He should have just cut her off totally after she did that.

Another person wrote: “He even went back to his hotel room and made sure he put the bag up, before coming back out and throwing that vase or whatever at her.”

Others argued that a high value man should never date a broke woman because she will eventually steal from him.
