The Twitter streets were in shambles after the news broke on Wednesday that Sean "Diddy" Combs and Cassie Ventura had parted ways.
After a six-year relationship, the music industry power couple ended their relationship, which came as a shock to unsuspecting fans.
However, an insider told People magazine: "The decision was amicable and they remain friends. Cassie is going to focus on her music and acting career."
Since the news broke Twitter has been speculating why they broke up. One theory is that Diddy rumoured is dating model Jocelyn Chew, while others were concerned about whether Cassie "secured the bag".
We live in a world where people are more concerned about Cassie 's bank balance instead of her emotional well-being after 10 years in this relationship with diddy.— ®fentse (@Joey_MakG) October 17, 2018

People are dragging Cassie because Diddy allegedly left her for a younger girl. What has this world come too? Y’all are dragging a girl who stopped her career, invested her time and love into a man who did her dirty in the end? Y’all hate women forreal.— Masin Elijè (@MasinElije) October 17, 2018
I have to admit; I didn't realize so many of you knew Cassie & Diddy personally.— the fearless self ✨ (@Msomifaya) October 18, 2018
Y'all see what Diddy did to Cassie and you still feel safe with gifts and none of that shit in your name? Time to re-evaluate. Niggaz will pull the rug from under you fast.— Nobleman (@WayneHarper_) October 17, 2018
One of the biggest criticism, however, to some tweeps reaction has been people assuming that due to Cassie not baring a child or getting a ring from Diddy means that her life is over even though Cassie basically spent the majority of her twenties in a lap of luxury.
I love when y’all say diddy wasted Cassie time. She lived a life of luxury she would have never lived otherwise for like 10 years.— Heavy Weight Champ (@Melly2times) October 17, 2018
We go over this every few months. Look at your 20s. Look at most celeb women in their 20s. Now tell me that Cassie wasted her 20s by being in a exclusive relationship with Diddy. Please do lmao— Island D (@MostLifeDre) October 17, 2018
One thing I will say about Cassie and Diddy is that perhaps there was an understanding of never getting married. There could be that possibility.— Oloni (@Oloni) October 17, 2018
Also, marriage isn’t the end goal for every hetero-mono relationship. We need to stop assuming everyone wants to get married.
Cassie won't be left with nothing. Don't be ridiculous. I'm sure there's some sort of "spousal support" arrangement. This is Diddy we talking about not the Bela Bela Boyz— Nobleman (@WayneHarper_) October 17, 2018
I think it's weird how ppl frame mutual relationships as detrimental to women whenever they don't end in marriage. Cassie didn't want to marry Diddy and that's fine. Marriage isn't the meaning of life. https://t.co/9kOqfJ2mJj— Feitan (@kingfredo__) October 17, 2018
Lol at people saying Diddy wasted Cassie's time.For 11 years Cassie was treated like a queen flying private,5 star hotels,the Hamptons and yachting in the Mediterranean and the Caribbean while the highlight of your long-term relationship that ended was Sundays at the Busy corner.— DumiGwebuEdits (@dumigwebu) October 17, 2018
So Cassie and Diddy split after 11 years of dating, and like clockwork here comes the usual commentary that HER life (not his) was wasted because their relationship never became a marriage.— TheGirlsLikeMe (@DoreenGLM) October 17, 2018
In terms of marriages in Hollywood, Cassie & Diddy actually had a longer relationship
