Sean "Diddy" Combs is starting over on social media.

The music mogul, 54, has deleted all posts from his Instagram account, including a video of his apology to ex Casandra "Cassie" Ventura after a 2016 video that showed her being physically abused by the rapper leaked.

In the post, Combs admitted to being “disgusted” by his actions, stating, “It’s so difficult to reflect on the darkest times in your life, but sometimes you got to do that."

“I was f----- up. I mean, I hit rock bottom. But I make no excuses. My behavior on that video is inexcusable," he continued. "I take full responsibility for my actions in that video. I’m disgusted. I was disgusted then when I did it, I’m disgusted now.”

A representative for Combs did not immediately respond to PEOPLE's request for comment.

Last year, Ventura made allegations against Combs in a now-settled lawsuit, claiming that the musician raped and sex trafficked her over the course of an abusive 10 years. (Combs previously denied the allegations, with his attorney calling them "offensive and outrageous.")

Ventura later spoke out for the first time following the release of the 2016 video in May. In a statement released on her Instagram, the singer expressed her thanks "for all of the love and support from my family, friends, strangers and those I have yet to meet."

Explaining that "the outpouring of love has created a place for my younger self to settle and feel safe now," Ventura continued, "But this is only the beginning. Domestic Violence is THE issue. It broke me down to someone I never thought I would become. With a lot of hard work, I am better today, but I will always be recovering from the past."

"This healing journey is never ending, but this support means everything to me. Thank you," she added, before acknowledging the backlash she received after filing her suit.

"My only ask is that EVERYONE open your heart to believing victims the first time,” Ventura wrote. “It takes a lot of heart to tell the truth out of a situation that you were powerless in.”

"I offer my hand to those that are still living in fear," she concluded, speaking to other victims of domestic abuse. "Reach out to your people, don’t cut them off. No one should carry this weight alone."

The star — who is currently facing multiple ongoing sexual assault lawsuits — also recently sold his majority stake in Revolt, the music-focused television network he co-founded with Andy Schuon in 2013.
