Cassie’s longtime songwriter and friend, Tiffany Red, sat down for an interview with NBC News and shared more horrifying claims about Sean “Diddy” Combs.

Red, who has penned songs for Zendaya and Jennifer Hudson, told NBC correspondent Chloe Melas she never witnessed any physical abuse, but she corroborated a 2015 incident that Cassie described in her 35-page lawsuit against Combs alleging sexual abuse.

As Cassie celebrated her 29th birthday at a karaoke bar with friends in 2015, Red said Diddy showed up and berated his then-girlfriend in front of the group.

“He had her backed into the corner and he was cursing her out with his hand in her face,” Red stated.

The singer-songwriter was staying with Cassie that night and said she woke up and heard screaming. Red said Diddy looked at her and called her an “emotional-singing bitch.”

“I was like, ‘Oh, he’s talking to me,'” Red recalled. “I don’t know if you know what his voice sounds like, but I felt like I was in the presence of his monster inside.”

She said Combs turned to her and demanded that she tell Cassie she wanted “some birthday d–k.”

“He’s saying this to me and I’m like, ‘Well, she doesn’t have to have sex with you if she doesn’t want to,'” Red said she told Combs.

She added, “I realized in that moment, ‘Oh, this guy is dangerous.'”

Red said she was recently told Combs wanted Cassie to take part in a “freak off” that night in 2015.

The lawsuit alleges at one point during that same night, Combs “picked up one of Ms. Ventura’s friends like a child and dangled the friend over the balcony of the 17th floor” of a hotel suite.

Asked what she knew about the “freak offs,” Red said Combs would hire male escorts to have sex with Cassie, and the music mogul would watch and direct the sessions like a filmmaker.

Red also said Cassie told her Diddy only allowed her to record music after she participated in “freak off” sessions.

“So all of our music, all my work, to find out I spent all these years writing these songs for him to rape my friend to, like, is just disgusting,” Red said.

The songwriter said she decided to speak out to show support for her friend.

“I don’t think people understand what it’s like to be traumatized by somebody famous and rich, because you can’t get away from them,” she said.

Combs has been accused of sexual abuse in lawsuits filed by four different women over the past month. He has denied all of the allegations.

Combs settled with Cassie, born Casandra Ventura, for an undisclosed amount of money one day after she filed her lawsuit.

The music mogul’s lawyer, Ben Brafman, said the settlement is not an admission of wrongdoing. “Mr. Combs’ decision to settle the lawsuit does not in any way undermine his flat-out denial of the claims,” the attorney said.
