Aubrey O’Day, who was signed to Diddy’s label “Bad Boy” in the 2000s, expressed her disapproval of the way the justice system worked in the Diddy-Cassie lawsuit settlement. The lawsuit was settled after Cassie sued Diddy in federal court, alleging that he had raped her and engaged in human trafficking over the years.
O’Day took to Instagram to share her thoughts about the stunning settlement, expressing her belief that money outweighed accountability in the way the case was resolved. She wrote, “Money > accountability. Every time. Welcome to another chapter of the system is well in place.”
In her post, O’Day’s message was clear – she believed the system didn’t work because Diddy likely paid a significant amount of money to put the suit to an end, and the details of the settlement were not disclosed. This led O’Day to question the effectiveness of the justice system when money could seemingly override accountability.
After Cassie filed the lawsuit, O’Day publicly voiced her support for Cassie, even taking to Instagram to share her thoughts and give Diddy a shot, expressing, “Been Trynna Tell Y’all For Years.” In a conversation with the New York Post, O’Day reiterated her complete support for Cassie, further demonstrating her solidarity with her former labelmate.
This wasn’t the first time O’Day had spoken out against Diddy. In the past, she had given several interviews alleging unwanted sexual advances from Diddy, which she always rebuffed. She also accused Diddy of being involved in shady business practices, adding a layer of complexity and controversy to their professional relationship.
For instance, she recounted a situation in which Diddy offered the publishing rights back to her group, Danity Kane, but with an NDA attached. O’Day found this condition to be annoying and did not sign the NDA. The ultimate resolution of the deal remained unclear, but this anecdote shed light on the dynamics of her relationship with Diddy.
Despite O’Day’s claims and the seriousness of the allegations made against him, Diddy has not directly addressed them. After the settlement with Cassie was finalized, he released a statement, saying, “We have decided to resolve this matter amicably. I wish Cassie and her family all the best. Love.”
Cassie also shared her sentiments following the settlement, stating, “I have decided to resolve this matter amicably on terms that I have some level of control. I want to thank my family, fans, and lawyers for their unwavering support.” Her statement reflected her desire to retain some degree of agency in the resolution of the case.
Overall, O’Day’s public comments and her support for Cassie’s pursuit of justice added another layer of complexity to the Diddy-Cassie lawsuit settlement. The controversy and discussions surrounding the case underscore the importance of holding individuals in positions of power accountable and addressing serious allegations with transparency and integrity.
