Aziza Kibibi's official statement on the viral video of Diddy abusing Cassie





As a survivor of abuse and the CEO of Precious Little Ladies Inc., an organization dedicated to abuse prevention, I am deeply disturbed by the video showing Diddy abusing Cassie. This incident sheds light on several critical issues that we must address collectively as a society.


First, it is important to acknowledge and support Cassie and all survivors of abuse. Historically, victims like Cassie are often met with disbelief and skepticism when they come forward. This lack of belief perpetuates a culture of silence and fear, making it incredibly difficult for survivors to seek help. Listening to and believing victims when they share their experiences is crucial. Trust and validation are foundational to their healing process.


Moreover, the statute of limitations for filing criminal charges in cases of abuse can be a significant barrier to justice. Many survivors need time to process their trauma and gather the courage to come forward, often beyond the legally allowed period. We must advocate for extending or abolishing these limitations to ensure that all survivors have the opportunity to seek justice, regardless of when they are ready to do so.


Victim blaming further exacerbates the issue by placing undue responsibility on survivors instead of the perpetrators. This harmful mindset can deter victims from reporting abuse and seeking support. We must shift our focus to holding abusers accountable for their actions and creating an environment where survivors feel safe and supported.



Facts about abuse highlight the severity of this issue. According to the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence, 1 in 4 women and 1 in 9 men experience severe intimate partner physical violence. These statistics are a stark reminder that abuse is widespread and can affect anyone, regardless of gender, age, or socioeconomic status.


To prevent abuse, we must prioritize education and awareness. This includes teaching young people about healthy relationships, consent, and respect. It also involves training community members, educators, and law enforcement to recognize signs of abuse and respond appropriately. Creating safe spaces for open conversations about abuse and supporting policies that protect victims are essential steps toward a more informed and proactive society.




Support for survivors can take many forms. Listening without judgment, offering resources such as counseling and legal assistance, and advocating for their rights are crucial ways to help. It is also important to challenge victim-blaming narratives and stand in solidarity with survivors, showing them that they are not alone.


At Precious Little Ladies, we remain committed to preventing abuse and supporting those affected by it. Together, we can create a world where survivors are heard, believed, and empowered to rebuild their lives free from fear and violence.
