Cassie rarely, if ever, spoke publicly during her decade-long relationship with music mogul Diddy.

Despite living a lavish lifestyle and traveling the world as is often the case for someone who dates a man worth more than $500 million, Cassie reveals that she was not a happy person two years ago.

While thumbing through old photos, she said she was struck by how much she has changed and evolved in the past year.

As most of pop culture is aware of, Cassie finally broke up with Sean Combs after 10 years and began dating the personal trainer that Diddy hired to keep her in shape, Alex Fine. Many women believe he is the embodiment of his surname. The romance quickly blossomed into a full-blown love affair that has progressed into a marriage. Their baby is due in December.

As she took a personal inventory of her life, Cassie was particularly shaken by the below photo and her emotional state more than two years ago.

“Was I happy? Was I eating that day? Did I sleep the night before? What was I stressing about at that moment? What front did I have up that day? This photo was of me in NY on May 31, 2017,” Cassie writes. “I feel sad for the girl in the picture because I know the personal demons she was battling, but I’m so excited for her growth to come.”

Do you ever come across old pictures of yourself and get blown away by how much you’ve evolved? When I look at pictures it brings me back to the exact place and time where I can literally touch the feelings I was feeling, almost experiencing them all over again with a sense of calm. It’s a form of therapy for me. Was I happy? Was I eating that day? Did I sleep the night before? What was I stressing at that moment? What front did I have up that day? This photo was of me in NY on May 31st, 2017. I feel sad for the girl in the picture because I know the personal demons she was battling, but I’m so excited for her growth to come. It’s bittersweet looking at this photo. This is a shout out to everyone on their journey! I’m still on mine and I hope that me sharing can help others know that there is so much joy in recognizing your growth every step of the way.

While Cassie doesn’t mention Diddy by name, the inference is obvious. She seems to be taking responsibility for her own state of mind back then as the reason she may have remained in an unfulfilling relationship for so long without getting married.

What do you make of her personal revelation?
