Aubrey O’Day has made her disdain for Diddy abundantly clear. Now, however, the ex-Danity Kane member appears to have blamed the American justice system for her ex-boss’s settlement with Cassie.
Taking to her Instagram Stories on Saturday (November 18), O’Day reposted a screenshot of the announcement that the ex-couple had settled their lawsuit, just a little over 24 hours after the suit was first brought, and she wasn’t happy about the way things went.
“Money > accountability. Every time. Welcome to another chapter of the system is well in place,” she wrote.

Prior to the settlement, O’Day had sent social media messages supportive of Cassie.
“Been tryna tell y’all for years,” she wrote on her Instagram Story on Thursday (November 16). “Prayers up for this queen @Cassie.”
O’Day isn’t the only celebrity to come to the defense of Cassie in the wake of the bombshell lawsuit.
Dawn Richard, another ex-Danity Kane member, also supported the singer.
“Praying for Cassie and her family, for peace and healing. You are beautiful and brave. [heart emoji],” she wrote on Twitter.
Azealia Banks also reacted to the news on social media on Thursday (November 16), detailing another alleged incident of domestic violence that Cassie suffered at the hands of the Bad Boy Records boss.
“THIS IS TRUE,” she wrote on her Instagram Stories in response to the headline: “Cassie Sues Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs For Rape And Repeated Physical Abuse.”
She added: “One time Diddy beat her up so bad he sent her on a 3week ‘vacation’ to Hawaii just so no one would see or question how her face got like that.”
Banks called Diddy “another violent hiphop homosexual,” and said: “This is what mental illness looks like for all of you armchair psychologists” — that last part seemingly a nod to observers who have speculated about her own mental health in the past.
In a statement provided to HipHopDX by Ben Brafman, the attorney for Diddy, on Saturday, it was made clear that settling the case did not constitute an admission of guilt by his client.
“Just so we’re clear, a decision to settle a lawsuit, especially in 2023, is in no way an admission of wrongdoing,” he wrote. “Mr. Combs’ decision to settle the lawsuit does not in any way undermine his flat-out denial of the claims. He is happy they got to a mutual settlement and wishes Ms. Ventura the best.”
