Diddy’s Ex-Security Guard Confirms Cassie’s Claim That He Stepped in to Stop Assault

Diddy’s former head of security says he’s speaking his “truth” after years of being silent. 

On Wednesday, November 29, Roger Bonds returned to TikTok to address the abuse allegations leveled against the Bad Boy Records founder, claiming there were multiple instances in which he had stopped Diddy from attacking Cassie and other individuals. Bonds, who worked for Diddy more than a decade ago, was named in Cassie’s bombshell lawsuit against Diddy, whom she sued for sexual assault, sex trafficking, and more. 

Cassie, born Casandra Ventura, said Diddy subjected her to abuse over the course of their relationship and had used his power and fame to conceal his wrongdoings. The singer claimed one of the attacks took place in 2009, when Diddy became enraged after seeing Cassie talking to another talent agent.

“In the car leaving the club, Mr. Combs beat Ms. Ventura, pushing her into a corner of the vehicle and stomping on her face,” the lawsuit read. “Mr. Combs’s security staff, Roger Bonds, tried to stop the beating, but was unable to deescalate the situation.”

Bonds corroborated the allegation in his TikTok, saying it was one of the many reasons he chose to stop working for Diddy.

“I was sick of everything that was going on around you,” he said in the video. “I was sick of having to cover up everything that you did. I was sick. Cassie spoke on it. She said, ‘Yeah, I jumped on it. I jumped in between it.’ That wasn’t the only time. It was other times, and it was other people.”
