I'm guessing he gave her $30 million, which was what she asked for. The public sentiment towards him has shifted, even before this. I'm sure he was panicked, the last couple of days, and wanted to stop the bleeding.

He’s very rich. $30 million is nothing to him. Better to just give it to her and she goes away than spend a bunch and make it a circus in court.

I hadn't been following this closely. So there were no criminal charges, and they settle that quick? Wow. She must have had a lot info about him, or Puffy saw that her speaking up was going to lead to other people coming forward.

I think it was more than $30 million. She already said she turned down an eight figure offer from him. She went scorched earth on him and probably has a lot of documented shit on him. Plus Kid Cudi backing her on the blown up car story had to have been pretty devastating. Another rapper Yung Joc told a story on a show last year about Diddy making Cassie shaving part of her head.
The court of public opinion would’ve ripped him to shreds and he is trying to nip it in the bud.

Is he seriously a billionaire?! He hasn’t had a hit in decades and I never hear about him. He must have other business ventures and is a producer or whatever. I hear his name and immediately think “has been”. He is also really unlikeable.

Cassie’s attorneys used the “why would this be a cash grab when Diddy already offered her eight figures not to go public?” excuse. Because she can and did get more. Diddy is terrified of even the hint of prison, however remote that is. It’s his Achilles heel.

He should have just paid her before she filed her lawsuit w/all of its allegations. He's probably very sorry he didn't pay her off earlier.

R38 no, I do not. I’m. If he was going to do that, he could’ve paid her the day before any of this came out. The story is out there now. The damage was done, so why pay more? I wouldn’t be surprised if he paid her less than his original offer. She got what she wanted, she damaged his reputation and got paid without having to go to court. I believe her story I just don’t think he’s the type to be shaken by something like this. He probably has 5 other women right now in the exact same situation that Cassie was in. He can’t have them thinking they have the power now. Anything more shocking Cassie had to reveal would probably run the risk of incriminating herself as well. We don’t know exactly how this has gone down. I doubt it’s as cut and dry as the statements are making it seem.

R43 she called his bluff and went public with the lawsuit. I am sure there are a lot of damning things about herself he thought she wouldn't go public with. I guess he wasn't aware of how over having a music career she was - considering that was the carrot he always hung over her head if she left. And once he saw the tip of the iceberg of what she was willing to talk about publicly, I am sure there is a shitload of DAMNING stuff about him that she wouldn't give a fuck about talking about now - including gay stuff. I am SURE he paid her more than 30 million. She could have gotten that and more in a trial. It must have been double for her to shut up so quickly.

Besides all this relationship drama, he was well known for being horrible to the artists he managed and produced for.
I am also thinking he was doing a little damage control as he knew this was coming. He's been working overtime in the last year to extend the olive branch to his former artists by reassigning his publishing rights to them. Faith Evans, Mase, 112, and many others.

There's no way of knowing how much she ends up with. Assuming it is $30 mil, before the money gets distributed the Feds will take 37% and there could be state tax. Do her lawyers get 50% of the gross ($30 mil), or 50% of the net (what remains after tax)? Not revealed is whether it is a lump sum or a payment spread out over - say - 10 years or more. Lot of details had to ironed out in the last 24 hours and of course everyone involved had to sign NDAs.

Things could've gotten worse for Diddy. The longer the court case dragged on, the more he would have been in the news in this negative light.
Aside from paying her off before she filed her lawsuit, this (paying her off before trial) was the best thing he could have done, PR-wise.

Well, if she was still holding other, more damaging dirt ouut there as r45 points out, would be one reason. The other would be the discovery phase of the trial. His phone and email records, travel records, etc. would be subpoenaed and he'd have to give depositions under oath. No way he's going to give that to opposing counsel.
Who are the people Combs is rumored to have killed? I stopped keeping up with popular music ages ago, so I didn't know he has such a terrible, violent reputation. J Lo incident aside, he appears to be the most vanilla hip hop artist among casual, white observers.

That may very well be what she left out, r59. Having her lawyers talk to his before filing was the first shot, then the details in the filing -- a more serious shot across the bow. This is why upthread I banged on about Diddy doing anything within his power to avoid the discovery phase . She'd be able to reveal more details and information about these encounters during her depositions as she's questioned about the nature and details -- what went on before and after, who said what to whom, etc. Such detail isn't necessary in the lawsuit filing because she's not suing him because he got plowed by male prosties.
This whole thing reminds of Paul Manafort and his poor drug-addled wife. Even the hustlers were black.

I know there was more discussion about this here, even with an independent thread (of course! We are DL, all over a scintilla of BBC). IIRC, there were quotes from Manafort's daughters' texts describing the whole sordid, awful, abusive scene. I may have used wrong search terms here and on Google and I'll try again, but it was pretty clear their mother was a benzo mess getting plowed without consent. Yes, Paul Manafort repeatedly set his wife up to be raped and their daughters were blithely having a text conversation about their mother's potential STD infections thanks to dad.
If I don't find the references, it *might* be because the right-wing funders with bottomless pockets got the internet scrubbed for him after Trump's pardon.
