Cassie Ventura is a singer that was signed to Bad Boy Records in 2006. From there, she got close to the label's founder, Diddy. Really...

Are Diddy and his girlfriend Cassie engaged after several years as a couple?

An apparent Instagram "proposal" occurred over the weekend ... or did it?

  • Diddy-Cassie Engagement Ring?
  • Cassie Image

The music mogul posted a picture of a diamond ring, writing, “Baby do you like it? I just want to get you wat you Like ! I just wanna Mk you smile :) #takeDat. !”

When Cassie was later spotted wearing a sparkler in a picture posted by Keyshia Cole, speculation soared that she and Diddy were finally engaged. OMG!

Of course, as Gossip Cop dutifully observes, this speculation is premature.

Note that at no point did Diddy or Cassie say “engaged” or “engagement.”

Showing Chris Brown exactly what he's missing, a gorgeous Karrueche Tran stars in Cassie's upcoming music video for "Paradise" featuring Wiz Khalifa.

Model Karrueche plays Wiz’s love interest in the video, which comes out April 11.

Check out the 30-second trailer Wiz released over the weekend below:

From what we can tell, Cassie and Karrueche Tran play BFFs driving a convertible and hanging out on the steps of a house with Wiz and some friends.

That's about all we've got for now, but just wait until Thursday!

Then we'll really see her make Chris jealous ... maybe.

No clue how the video ends, but our point: Rihanna who? No offense to the star, but Brown may have let a very sexy, good thing get away in Ms. Tran.

File this under stories you didn't see coming: Diddy is supposedly dating Cassie ... and hooking up with Cameron Diaz when she booty calls him, Us claims.

The magazine claims Diaz has recently been getting it on with Sean "Diddy" Combs, with whom she's had an on/off relationship since he wooed her in 2008.

Diddy, meanwhile, has been dating model Cassie for the past three years.

"Since then, when she's single, she'll booty call him," adds an Us insider.

The only hangup? Diddy is still dating his model girlfriend of three years, Cassie. Says a friend, "Diddy's single whenever there's a better offer on the table!"'

Nice. Apparently at NYC's Catch on October 24, the two were "inseparable" and "they had their hands all over each other," according to an eyewitness report.

Then, at last week's launch of Scarpetta in Beverly Hills, they were "making out, acting romantic," says a source. Reps for both stars they are "just friends."

We'd hope so for Cassie's sake ... and Diddy's. She might injure him.

While Chris Brown's BET Awards performance gets much of the attention, we can't forget about the obligatory, morning-after-awards-show tradition at THG:

Picking apart the night's ridiculous fashion choices!

Below, Fergie and Cassie go head-to-head in a clash of single-named titans. The Black Eyed Pea's tailcoat dress raised some eyebrows, for better or worse.

Cassie's ensemble, meanwhile, defies description.

Is that an ace bandage around her chest? That and the pleated pants really accentuate the half-shaved head, we have to admit. This could become a trend.

Like Kate Gosselin, Cassie is no stranger to bad hair days/years.

Those Cassie shaved head pics from last year might actually be preferable to channeling Kate, though. There are some celebs you just don't need to emulate.

Just the same, the R&B singer turned back the clock to 2009 and rocked a Kate Gosselin bi-level reverse mullet dead porcupine weave to an event in N.Y. City.

Come on. Even Kate doesn't wear her hair like Kate anymore.

But if you had to choose, who would you say brings out the best in this dreadful disaster of a haircut, the inventor of which should be ashamed? Vote below:

For her sheer originality (for better or worse), willingness to take risk, and that insane ensemble consisting of a feathered frock, bedazzled neck brace, and gold mask, Lady Gaga undoubtedly set the MTV VMA fashion bar high.

Or low, depending how you look at it. Much like whether she has both a penis and a vagina, Lady Gaga fashion is always subject to interpretation.

Meanwhile, Diddy's weird protege with the shaved head arrived in what some have been calling an unflattering floral frock and futuristic footwear.

How does Lady Gaga's outfit stack up against Cassie? Vote below ...

The official results of this celebrity fashion face-off are not in yet, but we feel comfortable issuing the following warning to Cassie Ventura:

It will be difficult to win any matchup as long as your head is half-shaven.

At this weekend's BET Awards, the singer (and rumored girlfriend of Diddy) was spotted on the red carpet, decked out in all her weird hairstyle glory. Fellow star Ciara was also in attendance.

Compare their looks below and then vote in our poll:

When Cassie shaved her head recently, it didn't leave quite the impression of Britney Spears bald. But that's because Britney Spears was insane at the time.

Cassie shaving one side of her dome was meant, she Twittered, to be seen as “Something that will shock your mother, but make her call you a ROCK STAR.”

Britney probably wishes she could have a mulligan on her head-shaving, but Cassie has no regrets, with her shaved head showing signs of staying power.

She even makes sure it looks freshly shorn at all times: “I get it touched up by a barber every three days,” Cassie recently told Women's Wear Daily.

With the exception of the surprising release of those "hacked" Cassie nude pics, this is the most shocking thing Diddy's protege has done ... well, ever.

Last week, people were talking about the Cassie nude photos that hit the Internet after they were "hacked," i.e. released by her handlers to generate attention.

Well, we've removed those risque pictures down after a complaint from Atlantic Records and Bad Boy Entertainment claiming "exclusive rights" to said images.

If we are to understand this correctly, Bad Boy Entertainment is therefore claiming ownership over Cassie's breasts and baby factory. She's totally doing Diddy!

Just making sure we're clear on that.

Anyway, the image below is not one of the infamous pictures, but she is wearing no pants, which is pretty sweet, we suppose, if you have a thing for Cassie ...

Cassie Ventura cups a fruity drink as she poses, seductively and sans pants, by a fence whilst wearing an article of clothing that appears to be 4-6 sizes too small.

We don't know where this resort is, but pants are apparently optional, while trying-to-act-hard scowls are mandatory. Click to enlarge more Complex Cassie pics ...

Having recently generated huge buzz with her shaved head, Cassie probably figured there was no reason to stop after removing all of her hair.

She's ditched any and all clothes in a couple of pics circulating online.

That's right, nude photos of the singer have popped up, making us wonder what exactly Cassie is up to when she's not doing Diddy. What would the music mogul say about his prized protege / plaything showing her assets to the world?

The 22-year-old has just released a statement about the pics:

The recent personal pictures that have been leaked on the internet of me were hacked and stolen out of my computer. These photos were obviously never intended for the world to see and it’s sad that people would really take time to steal and post them, it’s just evil. At the end of the day breasts are breasts, mine weren’t the first you’ve seen and won’t be the last. People need to grow up, let’s move on. Thank you. Cassie.
