John Legend condemns Sean Combs over abuse allegations

In a recent interview with CNN’s Christiane Amanpour, pop star John Legend expressed profound dismay and condemnation over the allegations of abuse directed towards music mogul Sean Combs, commonly known as “Diddy.” Legend firmly voiced his belief in the women who have come forward with accusations against Combs, including his ex-girlfriend Casandra ‘Cassie’ Ventura.

Legend emphasized his deep concern upon hearing the initial reports of abuse and the subsequent release of video evidence by CNN, which depicted Combs physically assaulting Ventura. He asserted his default position of believing women when they make such accusations and stressed the importance of offering support to survivors of abuse.

The singer, who had previously collaborated with Combs on the song “Kim Porter,” underscored the significance of ensuring that survivors’ voices are heard and that there is accountability and support to aid in their healing process. While Combs has apologized for his actions in the released video, acknowledging them as “inexcusable,” the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office has stated their inability to press charges due to the statute of limitations.

Legend’s stance adds weight to the ongoing discourse surrounding the importance of believing and supporting survivors of abuse, highlighting the necessity for systemic change to address these issues. His comments contribute to the mounting pressure on Combs to be held accountable for the alleged abuses.
