Ventura was 19 when she met Combs and alleged he started a pattern of abuse and controlling behaviour that included ‘beating her, plying her with drugs and forcing her to have sex with male prostitutes as Combs filmed’.

Combs’ lawyer, Ben Brafman, denied any wrongdoing on his behalf in a statement.

He told : ‘Just so we’re clear, a decision to settle a lawsuit, especially in 2023, is in no way an admission of wrongdoing.’

While Combs said: ‘We have decided to resolve this matter amicably. I wish Cassie and her family all the best. Love.’

Terms of the settlement have not been disclosed.

‘Seeing two other women bravely speak out against Mr Combs and Mr Pierre, respectively, gave Ms Doe the confidence to tell her story as well,’ the paperwork states via Variety.

Combs, whose hit songs include I’ll Be Missing You, Can’t Nobody Hold Me Down and Give Me Love, has since shared a statement on social media, vehemently denying all allegations made against him.

‘Enough is enough. For the last couple of weeks, I have sat silently and watched people try to assassinate my character, destroy my reputation and my legacy,’ he wrote.

‘Sickening allegations have been made against me by individuals looking for a quick payday.

‘Let me be absolutely clear: I did not do any of the awful things being alleged. I will fight for my name, my family and for the truth.’
