Slim Thug has apologized after claiming Cassie was just looking for a payday from Diddy. On Saturday (Nov. 18), the Houston rapper came under fire for implying that the singer wasn’t actually a victim. Instead, he expressed that she was looking for financial gain. After Cassie and Diddy agreed upon a settlement, Thug stated that her interest in bringing Puff to justice waned.
“They’re coming back and getting Bill Cosby and coming back and get Puff, I don’t believe in that,” he said in his car. “When sh*t go down, you speak on it right there. It should be null and void. Let the people know immediately.
“There should be a time limit. What happened was… you were f**king 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 [it’s] struggle time, the love wearing off and now you trying to come up with ways you could get paid. ‘Now I’m healed and I can talk about it.’ You participated, and you did that. So stand on it.”
Slim followed up with a second video, not budging on his stance. He doubled down on his opinion that Cassie’s only motivation for her lawsuit was money. “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 immediately came under fire for his views. The rapper then returned to social media with an apology on Sunday (Nov. 19) but insisted that it was his “personal opinion.” Additionally, he did state that he doesn’t mind being corrected if he is wrong on something. He also added that he “didn’t know Cassie was Black.”
“That was my personal opinion. I’m sorry we don’t agree on everything, I can still take you to Starbucks and buy you a drink, we can chop it up, I don’t hate nobody, I don’t even hate Cassie,” he said. “I didn’t want this to go worldwide… 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.”
