Per the suit, Cassie and Combs met when she was 19 and he was 37, but they did not begin a romantic relationship until years later. The suit detailed Combs’ alleged « uncontrollable rage, » and how he allegedly beat his girlfriend on multiple occasions. At the time of the filing, his lawyer issued a statement saying in part, « Mr. Combs vehemently denies these offensive and outrageous allegations.
