LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA: Sean 'Diddy' Combs’ former head of security was not surprised by the shocking 2016 footage of the music mogul allegedly abusing his then-girlfriend Cassie Ventura, as he has seen the rapper being violent towards women “four or five times”. 

Recently, a newly surfaced surveillance video footage from the now-closed InterContinental Hotel - which shows the ‘Bad Boy for Life’ rapper kicking and shoving Ventura - created quite a ripple on the internet. 

But the footage apparently left Roger Bonds, his former head of security, unsurprised as he has previously witnessed such brutality and had to intervene even.

Diddy’s head of security not suprised over assault video

During an interview with Piers Morgan on Monday, May 20, Bonds referred to the video and said, “It didn’t surprise me when I saw it because I’ve seen things to this nature before.”

The former head of security shared that he had even intervened in such incidents before, saying, “I’ve gotten in between things of this nature before — and this was back in 2012.”

In the video footage released by CNN, Diddy can be seen being violent toward his ex-girlfriend in the hotel lobby.

After Morgan asked him how many times he had seen Diddy showing such brutal behavior, Bonds replied, “Around four or five times," per New York Post.

Bonds then went on to explain, “I’ve seen him [be violent] with Cassie and I’ve seen him with Kim Porter, his kid’s mother.”

Diddy dated the late model from the 1990s through 2007 and shared four children together - Jessie, D'Lila, Christian, and Quincy.

Bonds alleged, “I’ve seen him get physical. I’ve seen him get really physical, grab them up.”

He further continued that the assault often escalated to “wrestling and punching matches” which led him to question the ‘Last Night’ singer’s reason for such disturbing behavior.

He recalled, “I’ve seen him get into some wrestling and punching matches and sometimes I felt like, ‘What are you mad at? What are you upset about?'”


He continued, “Because it’s a deeper anger when you’re hitting and punching a woman in that type of manner.”


“When you have a problem with every woman that you’re dealing with, then I think that problem is inside of you,” said the former head of security regarding the alleged behavior. 

After the video surfaced on Friday, Diddy issued an apology video on Sunday, saying that he was “sorry” for the inexcusable behavior that he had previously shown.

However, Bonds is not convinced by the apology and thinks he just said what he believed people wanted to hear.

He said, “You can’t just say anything you want to say and think that people are going to accept it.”

He further added that Diddy knew he would be able to buy the surveillance camera footage. Earlier, in her November lawsuit against the ‘Coming Home’ singer, Ventura accused Diddy of paying $50,000 for the footage. 

Bonds suggested during the interview that the Bad Boy Records founder, however, did not know that the hotel gave a copy of the footage to Ventura as well.

He added, “When you go through life just paying your way out, I really feel like he wasn’t sorry about that — he might be sorry now that he got caught, but if that was a one-time incident, then I would say accept his apology, but I think in that apology he said what he thought people wanted to hear.”

Previously, a body language expert shared he was portraying himself as a victim in the apology video.

Diddy continued, “I was f**ked up — I hit rock bottom — but I make no excuses. My behavior on that video is inexcusable," per The Hollywood Reporter.

“I take full responsibility for my actions in that video,” Diddy added before continuing, “I was disgusted then when I did it. I’m disgusted now."

"I went and I sought out professional help. I got into going to therapy, going to rehab. I had to ask God for his mercy and grace. I’m so sorry. But I’m committed to be a better man each and every day. I’m not asking for forgiveness. I’m truly sorry.”
