LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA: Sean "Diddy" Combs’ former makeup artist, Mylah Morales, is the latest to join the long list of individuals to corroborate the accusations of abuse days after the horrific assault video came to light. 

Morales, who previously worked with both the record producer and his ex-girlfriend, Cassie Ventura, recently shared in an interview that she saw signs of the alleged abuse when the former couple were still dating.

While talking to Extra, she recounted an incident between Diddy and Ventura that took place during a Grammy weekend at The Beverly Hills Hotel over 10 years ago.

In the interview with Extra, Morales shared, "All I witnessed was [Combs] walking into the room and saying, ‘Where the f--- is she?’ and I didn't know what was going on."

She went on to share her confusion and the subsequent horror, noting, "I was like, ‘I just woke up from a slumber,’ and next thing you know, all I hear from the bedroom was just s--- [that] I don't want to go back and think about. I did not know what was going on … all I can think of was to get her out of there.”

Morales went on to describe the now 37-year-old singer's appearance post the alleged abuse, sharing, "She was bruised. I mean, badly bruised, like knots on her head, a black eye."

The makeup artist reiterated, "All I cared about was to get her to safety, and I took her into my house and kept her there for a few days. I literally called my friend, who was a doctor at the time, to treat her because we couldn't bring her to the hospital. We didn't know what the hell to do at that point. Who are we going to call?"

"I'm scared just even talking about this, but I feel like somebody has to," mentioned Morales.

She further claimed, "We were always scared of Puff," referring to the Bad Boy Records producer’s previous moniker, "Puff Daddy." "He's a powerful person and we don't know what would happen to us if we spoke out," added Morales.

Sean 'Diddy' Combs' former head of security says he has witnessed him being violent with Cassie Ventura and Kim Porter

Morales is not the only staffer who spoke up against the rapper. The 'Bad Boy for Life' rapper's former head of security shared with Piers Morgan that the recently released assault video footage by CNN did not surprise him.

Roger Bonds noted, "It didn’t surprise me when I saw it because I’ve seen things of this nature before," before sharing that he has witnessed such brutal behavior "around four or five times."

He added, "I’ve gotten in between things of this nature before — and this was back in 2012." 


Bonds further said, "I’ve seen him [be violent] with Cassie and I’ve seen him with Kim Porter, his kid’s mother. I’ve seen him get physical. I’ve seen him get really physical, grab them up."

On the topic of Diddy's apology video, which the rapper posted two days after the surveillance footage from 2016 was made public by CNN, his former bodyguard stated, "When you go through life just paying your way out, I really feel like he wasn’t sorry about that. Yeah, he might be sorry now. He’s sorry that he got caught," as per PEOPLE Magazine

He also mentioned, "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."
