The multi-hyphenate, who previously described the Bad Boy Records founder as his 'brother,' said in a new interview that he can't judge his rapper 'friend' due to some reasons.

AceShowbiz - Nick Cannon dubbed Sean "P. Diddy" Combs' actions towards his ex Cassie "heinous and monstrous" in the leaked 2016 assault video. Despite the abuse, the multi-hyphenate said he can't judge his rapper "friend" due to some reasons.

The 43-year-old weighed in on the matter when appearing on "The Pivot Podcast". He said, "Who are we as men to be able to judge at some level that we can throw another human being away... It's like everybody has the opportunity for, you know, reconciliation and atonement. It's just if you're really willing to put the work in."

"With all of those relationships that I had, it's like, I can't judge that man, you know. I don't know what demons he's struggling with," the ex-husband of Mariah Carey continued. "I don't know what he's going through, but it's not my job to throw that person away."

Nick went on to note, "So hopefully, you know, with building the counsel culture community and creating professionals, doctors, and clinicians that can say, you know, we all have problems. We are all dealing with mental wellness. We're all dealing with issues of trauma, and how do we deal with that specifically as black men."

When addressing the sexual assault allegations against Diddy, Nick admitted he faced a dilemma. "I'm praying for Cassie, trying to find the high frequency and knowing the story, knowing the right thing to talk about, I was like, this is someone who was hurt, who was victimized," he said during a conversation with Iyanla Vanzant for his new series, "Counsel Culture", in April.

"But then when this question goes a little bit further, 'So what about Puff?' It's like, 'I don't know how to feel about that,' " Nick added. He explained that the disgraced mogul had been there for him during his own struggles, and he felt an obligation to defend him.

"When I was going through my stuff, someone that called, checked on me, stood by me, stood up for me," he elaborated. "And I was like, 'What do I owe you?' "
