Cassie and Diddy's relationship began in the shadows, but TMZ has alleged their breakup on Wednesday (August 17) drew quite an audience.

The couple, rumored to be dating for years (though Cassie's first public acknowledgment didn't come until 2012), officially called it quits earlier this week after a fireworks-worthy argument in a car. The site claims that Cassie set Diddy off when she told him she was done, and Diddy, who was shocked and suspicious, grabbed her phone and jumped out of the car to snoop. Cassie took off with the driver.

When Cassie returned home and clued her mother in about Diddy's phone-snatch, her mother responded by calling the police. Cassie told the cops what happened when they showed up to her house. Diddy had returned the phone before authorities arrived, but police drafted a domestic incident report due to the earlier argument. TMZ reports that the responders concluded that no crime had been committed.

This isn't the first time Cassie and Diddy have drawn breakup rumors. In December 2015, Cassie posted an Instagram image that implied she and Diddy had broken up because he'd cheated on her, and amid news that he'd visited a sex store with the mother of three of his children, Kim Porter. In February, Buzzfeed reported that the couple had actually broken up over fake texts between Diddy and a habitual catfish.
