Diddy Panics In Video Outside Home After Assault

Whoopi Goldberg was visibly taken aback on Monday’s episode of The View following the release of a disturbing video showing Sean “Diddy” Combs assaulting his ex-girlfriend, Cassie Ventura. As the show played the footage, Goldberg introduced the segment with a warning about the graphic nature of the content.



“Now,” Goldberg began, pausing briefly, “Be warned, OK? There’s some disturbing footage ahead.” The surveillance video, initially released by CNN, depicted Diddy violently attacking Ventura, a scene he had previously denied. Following the video, The View aired Diddy’s recent apology, where he admitted, “My behavior on that video is inexcusable. I take full responsibility for my actions in that video. I’m disgusted. I was disgusted then when I did it. I’m disgusted now.” He also mentioned seeking professional help and attending therapy.

The camera returned to Goldberg, who appeared momentarily at a loss for words. “Does his confession change anything?” she eventually asked, looking visibly affected. Co-host Ana Navarro responded, clarifying, “It wasn’t a confession. It was an apology.”

“Right. I guess, but it’s a confession,” Goldberg countered, with Sunny Hostin adding, “He admitted he did it.”

Goldberg then raised a critical question about the legal implications of the assault, asking, “Why isn’t this kind of assault an open-ended — why — why — why is there an end to this? Because if people say, well, you know, she reported it and he denied it and then she proved it and then they said, well there’s nothing we can do because the statute of limitations is up.”

Hostin, addressing Goldberg’s query, explained, “The statute of limitations for felony assault is about three years in most states. The statute of limitations for misdemeanor assault is like a year and a half. It’s unfortunate.” Hostin’s explanation highlighted the legal challenges in prosecuting such cases after the statute of limitations has expired.
