Diddy admits violence against ex-girlfriend

Sean "Diddy" Combs

Sean "Diddy" Combs has apologized for his actions which he called "inexcusable" after CCTV showed footage of him attacking singer Casandra "Cassie" Ventura.

Speaking in a video posted on his Instagram profile, the rap star said he took full responsibility for his actions in the clip.

The footage, broadcast by CNN earlier this week, showed Combs kicking and shoving Ventura in a hotel hallway.

"I felt disgusted when I did it. I am disgusted now," he said in his statement. "I went and asked for professional help. I went to therapy, I went to rehab. I had to ask God for his mercy and grace. I am very sorry".

The footage appears to have been shot on March 5, 2016.

According to CNN, the footage was filmed at the now-closed InterContinental Hotel in Century City, Los Angeles.
