Kim Porter's father on shocking Diddy assault video: "I didn't know he could stoop that low"

Jake Porter, the father of Kim Porter, an ex-girlfriend of Sean ‘Diddy‘ Combs, has stated that he is “disgusted” by the video of Combs assaulting singer Cassie Ventura.

The disturbing video has been circulating for a few weeks amid almost continuous allegations surrounding Combs’ behaviour. The footage from 2016 sees Ventura attempting to flee Combs’ hotel room in a distressed state before the music mogul pushes her to the ground, grabs her neck, kicks and then drags her back to his room.

“You can say I was disgusted with the video, and I wouldn’t treat my enemy like that,” the 78-year-old father told Rolling Stone. “It was despicable. I couldn’t believe it. I was in Vietnam, and I wouldn’t do that to my enemy.”

Kim Porter, the mother of Diddy’s children, son Christian and twin daughters Jesse and D’Lila, passed away in 2018. While Porter says he never saw Diddy assault his daughter, the newly surfaced video has provided a “different outlook” on Combs.

“I didn’t know he could stoop that low,” he said of the shocking video. “I imagine it surprised a lot of people. I wouldn’t even do a dog like that. My heart goes out to Cassie.”

Porter confirmed that his daughter and Diddy were seemingly in love with each other but that they had not been compatible for very long. “I think he was a very jealous person. They both loved each other. Kim’s love was legitimate. Puffy’s love, I don’t know what he calls love, you know what I mean?” he said. “I really don’t think he has any idea what love is.”

Cassie opened up about the harrowing assault caught in the video a few days after it went viral, saying that it “broke me down to someone I never thought I would become.”

“I offer my hand to those that are still living in fear,” she continued in an Instagram post. “Reach out to your people, don’t cut them off. No one should carry this weight alone. This healing journey is never ending, but this support means everything to me. Thank you. Love Always, Cassie”.
