Slim Thug has offered an apology following his initial statement claiming that settling her lawsuit with Diddy doesn’t necessarily imply that Cassie was a victim.
The Houston rapper is facing criticism for stating that Cassie’s sole motive was to secure a financial settlement from Diddy. And after achieving that, she showed no interest in pursuing her allegations of domestic violence against him.

“They’re coming back and getting Bill Cosby and coming back and get Puff, I don’t believe in that,” he said on his Instagram Story. “When sh*t go down, you speak on it right there. It should be nuff and void. Let the people know immediately. There should be a time limit. What happened was…you were f*cking with a billionaire with all this bread all this time and then you went and followed your heart to f*king with a trainer… now struggle time, the love wearing off and now you trying to come up with ways you could get paid.”
In another video, the rapper remained steadfast in his stance and reiterated his earlier remarks.
“She got her bag, so everything was good but I’m just saying that it didn’t sound like no abuser-victim to me. It sounds like ‘I needed that bag’ and she got it and everything good now, she fixed, everybody happy now right,” he added.
Additionally,he asserted that other women were being untruthful about experiencing abuse, and he suggested that Cassie should have involved law enforcement to have Diddy arrested to potentially protect other victims.
Nonetheless, fans started criticizing Slim Thug, highlighting allegations that he had fathered a child with his cousin and had previously posted inappropriate messages to women, insinuating that they were enticing him with their appearances. Subsequently, the rapper issued an apology to Cassie.
“That was my personal opinion. I’m sorry we don’t agree on everything…I don’t hate Cassie, I didn’t even know Cassie was black…I just give y’all opinion, end of the day if I say something wrong correct me, tell me, I ain’t that small-minded,” he said.
