Slim Thug has had a change of heart after a disturbing surveillance video of Diddy (real name Sean Combs) and his ex-girlfriend Cassie Ventura in an alleged altercation became public. Last November, Ventura filed a civil suit against the Bad Boy CEO alleging that he raped and physically abused her — among other things. Nearly one day later, the two settled out of court for an undisclosed amount.

The mounting allegations, particularly Ventura’s seemed to divide hip hop. And while many sympathized with the singer, several folks stood with Combs. In particular, Houston rapper Slim Thug. However on Friday (March 17), he jumped on Instagram to back peddle his earlier comments. “Damn Diddy [man facepalming emoji]. I tried to ride with the [Black] man who had no charges yet but I can’t stand behind this [zipper-mouth face emoji]. I’ll take this L,” Slim Thug wrote.

‘Apologies to Cassie And Whoever Else Was On The Right Side,’ Slim Thug Says In A new Post

He continued: “But I still will ride with my ppl until I see some sort of proof I don’t believe in blogs or civil suits. Apologies to Cassie and whoever else was on the right side this time [prayer hand emoji].” Before that, he claimed it was a plot to take down a Black man: “I don’t want to see a Black man who came so far, almost to a billion dollars, fall down. That’s our inspiration,” he said in a March Instagram Live post. “We losing another billionaire over allegations at this point. Still aint no criminal charges.”

Slim Thug’s recent statement comes after CNN obtained footage of the alleged attack, which happened in March 2016. The footage sees a shaken Cassie swiftly moving down the hallway to the elevator. However, it’s not long before Combs — with a towel wrapped around his waist — is seen running down the hallway after her. When he finally catches up with her, he is seen grabbing her by the hair and slamming her to the ground. The Bad Boy CEO then kicks her multiple times as she lies on the ground.
