Sean “Diddy” Combs' former assistant wasn't shocked by the recent video showing the rapper violently attacking his ex-girlfriend Cassie Ventura in a hotel.

Suzi Siegi, who was Combs' assistant from 2008 to 2009 when his relationship with Ventura began, told liberal-controlled CNN that “there wasn't a single cell in my body that was surprised” by the disturbing 2016 images.

The New York Post reports this,

“I felt sick and I felt very angry,” she said after watching the video. “It's so disturbing that the video doesn't lie.”

Siegel said she spent a lot of time in limousines and at parties with the couple while working as Combs' assistant, but “never saw him talk harshly to her or be insulting or anything like that.”

“I was around him a lot and got a feel for who he was,” she continued. “I didn't see anything that would get him in trouble, but I think the power dynamics increase in a situation like that, especially early in her career,” she said.

When they began their on-again, off-again relationship, Combs was 37 and Ventura was 19. Ventura was signed to Combs' label, continuing the business relationships through 2019.

“Imagine what that would be like. And then he's rich. And not only is he rich, he also controls your career,” Siegel said.

She said it was her “female intuition” that led her to believe Combs was capable of violence, as well as the way he interacted with those around him.

“As far as I saw, no one was being mistreated, I didn't feel mistreated, but it was very clear to me, again, this is intuition… he just didn't see your humanity when he looked at you,” she said.

The security footage showed Ventura escaping from Combs' room at the InterContinental Hotel in Los Angeles in bare feet and attempting to enter an elevator. Kamt, wrapped in a towel, approaches her, grabs her by the neck and knocks her to the ground.

On the hallway floor, he kicked, dragged and threw things at her while she lay on her back.

The assault confirms allegations laid out in a now-settled lawsuit filed by Ventura. In the filing, Ventura claims that Combs paid the hotel $50,000 for the security footage. The lawsuit was settled one day after filing.

The Los Angeles District Attorney's Office said it cannot prosecute Combs based on the video because it occurred outside the state's statute of limitations for simple assault and battery.

Five lawsuits have been filed against Combs since November, alleging rape, sexual misconduct and other crimes.

In April, federal agents conducted a dramatic raid on his mansions in California and Florida as part of an investigation by the Department of Homeland Security's human trafficking team.

Despite no charges being filed, he has consistently denied the allegations against him.
