Suge Knight is gearing up to address Cassie’s claims that P. Diddy once prepared to confront him with a bunch of guns. The ex-Death Row Records honcho plans to discuss the incident on his “Collect Call” podcast in the next couple of weeks, following his Thanksgiving Day episode. However, before Suge could air his side of the story, Diddy and Cassie settled their differences amicably, just as Cassie’s lawsuit against Diddy for alleged rape, abuse, and human trafficking was heating up. Despite the lawsuit, both parties expressed that they settled the matter amicably, putting an end to the public legal battle.
Cassie’s lawsuit against Diddy initially claimed that one night, while she was at home with him, one of his security staff burst into the room to inform him that Suge had been spotted at the popular L.A. eatery Mel’s Drive-In Diner. Allegedly, Diddy immediately got dressed, retrieved multiple firearms from a safe, and ran out to go confront Suge. However, it doesn’t appear any public altercation ever went down.
Diddy’s legal team had dismissed the lawsuit as nothing but a classic shakedown for $30 million. However, the settlement between Diddy and Cassie put an end to the legal drama, relieving both parties from further public scrutiny.
Suge’s and Diddy’s history dates back to the mid-’90s during the height of the East Coast/West Coast rap wars, which ultimately led to the tragic murders of Tupac Shakur and Biggie. Considering their history, it is expected that Suge won’t hold back with his take on Diddy’s new legal drama.
The settlement between Diddy and Cassie poses the question of whether it will affect Suge’s plan to talk about all things Diddy in the near future. It remains to be seen whether Suge will go forward with addressing the incident on his podcast, as people are still interested in hearing his side of the story.
Suge and Breakbreak Media CEO Dave Mays launched “Collect Call” back on Halloween, and their next couple episodes are shaping up to be their most explosive, with discussions about Diddy and the recent arrest of Keefe D for the 1997 murder of Tupac Shakur.
With the settlement now in place, it will be interesting to see if Suge moves forward as planned or takes it in a different direction. Regardless of the settlement, the public’s interest in Suge’s perspective on the matter is likely to remain high.
