Leslie, a musician and entrepreneur, who also happens to be Cassie’s ex-boyfriend, shared this news with TMZ on Tuesday, December 12. Although Leslie didn’t divulge specific details about the tour, he confirmed that Cassie is actively planning for it.
Ryan Leslie, in his statement, mentioned that during their last conversation, Cassie was focused on organizing a tour. Notably, Leslie refrained from commenting on the details of the settled lawsuit, where Cassie accused Diddy, the founder of Bad Boy Records, of sexual assault.
Despite his close association with both artists, Leslie neither confirmed nor denied the allegations made by Cassie. It’s important to note that Diddy has vehemently denied all claims of sexual assault.
Ryan Leslie played a pivotal role in Cassie’s career, discovering her in 2004 and subsequently signing her to a record deal. Under his guidance, Leslie wrote and produced her hit single “Me & U” and a significant portion of her self-titled debut album, which also featured contributions from Diddy.
The dynamics changed when Cassie and Leslie parted ways, leading her to enter into a relationship with Diddy that lasted from 2007 to 2018.
Throughout her relationship with Diddy, Cassie’s musical output was limited, with her only release being the 2013 mixtape titled “RockaByeBaby.” Distributed via Bad Boy Records, the mixtape featured collaborations with renowned artists such as Rick Ross, Fabolous, French Montana, Pusha T, and Meek Mill, among others.
