Diddy's former bodyguard isn't forgiving the Bad Boy mogul.

Diddy’s former bodyguard, Roger Bonds, has reacted to the apology video he released on social media, on Sunday. Diddy posted the clip to address the footage CNN published that appears to show him assaulting Cassie at a hotel back in 2016. Bonds says he's not moved by the apology, in which Diddy remarks that he was at "rock bottom."

"I guess you sorry and was at rock bottom for YRS AND YRS CAUSE YOU WAS WHIPPING NOT ONLY HER ASS & KIMS ASS BUT OTHERS TO. LETS REFLECT!! HARLEM TO HOLLYWOOD SOON COME." In a follow-up post, he added: "I'm not afraid to say as a man I pushed off a lot of sh*t mentally I went through and go through being with Puffy but you don't realize it until you seek help and now that I have help I see things clearly and I have to liv with it. So if you don't agree with me press the BLOCK BUTTON."

As for the apology, Diddy claims he was in a dark period at the time of the incident and has since sought out professional help in the way of therapy and rehab. “It’s so difficult to reflect on the darkest times in your life, but sometimes you got to do that," he says. "I was f*cked up — I hit rock bottom — but I make no excuses. My behavior on that video is inexcusable. I take full responsibility for my actions in that video. I was disgusted then when I did it. I’m disgusted now. I went and I sought out professional help, I got into going to therapy, going to rehab. I had to ask God for his mercy and grace. I’m so sorry. But I’m committed to be a better man each and every day. I’m not asking for forgiveness. I’m truly sorry.”
