50 Cent has taken yet another jab at fellow rapper Sean “Diddy” Combs after he was sued by his ex Cassie for rape and abuse.
“Damn brother love, brother love, brother love, you out here looking 👀CRAZY AS A MF. LMAO,” 50 Cent captioned a stank-face selfie on Instagram Thursday.
Combs changed his name to “Love,” or “Brother Love,” in 2017, saying at the time that he had evolved into a new person and therefore desired a new moniker.
50 Cent’s comment on the allegations against Combs, which were documented in a lawsuit filed by the “Me & U” singer Thursday, should come as no surprise.
The “In da Club” rapper, 48, has been a longtime critic of the “I’ll Be Missing You” hitmaker, even questioning his sexuality as recently as this summer.
In fact, his disapproving remarks about Combs, 54, have become so frequent that fans expressed zero shock when he commented on the bombshell lawsuit.
For more Page Six you love …
“Who else was waiting for that 50 reply,” one user wrote, while another added, “I was waiting for this post lol.”
“Everything 50cent [sic] been saying to us all these years were true,” another fan remarked.
Cassie, born Casandra Ventura, claims in her lawsuit against Combs that he “lured [her] into an ostentatious, fast-paced, and drug-fueled lifestyle, and into a romantic relationship with him.”
According to the complaint obtained by Page Six, they met and began dating in 2005 or 2006 when she was 19 and he was 37.
During their time together, Cassie alleges he forced her to have sex with male prostitutes while he filmed. She also claims he forced himself into her house and raped in 2018 toward the end of their relationship.
Furthermore, she accuses the music mogul of having “uncontrollable rage” and repeatedly beating her, which she claims was often witnessed by his staff.
“Over the years that Mr. Combs abused Ms. Ventura physically and sexually, she again and again tried to escape his tight hold over her life,” the lawsuit states.
“Every time she hid, Mr. Combs’s vast network of corporations and affiliated entities found her, and those who worked for Mr. Combs’s companies implored her to return to him.”
Combs denied the allegations in a statement to Page Six via his attorney, Ben Brafman.
“Mr. Combs vehemently denies these offensive and outrageous allegations,” the statement read.
“For the past 6 months, Mr. Combs has been subjected to Ms. Ventura’s persistent demand of $30 million, under the threat of writing a damaging book about their relationship, which was unequivocally rejected as blatant blackmail.
“Despite withdrawing her initial threat, Ms. Ventura has now resorted to filing a lawsuit riddled with baseless and outrageous lies, aiming to tarnish Mr. Combs’s reputation and seeking a payday.”
Combs restricted the comments on Instagram once the allegations were made public.
