His former head of security, Roger Bonds, believes he was just playing to the gallery.

Speaking on Piers Morgan’s Uncensored talk show, Bonds accused the rapper of being manipulative, saying he was only saying what people wanted to hear.

“My reaction is – he is up to the same games. He never mentioned Cassie’s name in the apology. So, to me he didn’t humble himself enough. I think he said what people want to hear not what he felt,” he added.

Bonds says he wasn’t surprised by the violent footage as he has seen P Diddy committing the same atrocies before.

“He is a king manipulator. Money and power it’s what he’s all about. I think it’s a god syndrome. The same way he always paid his way out of things. When you get through life paying your way out, I feel like he is not sorry. He is only sorry because he got caught.”

Bonds says he has seen Diddy assault women several times.

Among the women he has allegedly been physical with is the late mother of the 54-year-old’s children, Kim Potter.

“Sometimes I felt like what are you made about because it’s a deeper anger when you are hitting and punching a woman in that type of manner. It’s understandable when you have a problem with one woman but when you have a problem with all women you get involved with – it’s a deeper problem.”

Bonds says Diddy needs to stop lying and admit his history of violence against women. He says that would be a start towards his rehabilitation.

Fellow American rapper, 50 Cent, has also questioned the sincerity of Diddy’s apology.

The authorities in the US have confirmed knowledge of the incident, saying they however won’t be prosecuting the rapper.

This has sparked a public outcry from many social media users, who are demanding that the 54-year-old be arrested.
