Diddy Denial

Sean John denies reports that he had anything to do with the Tupac assault in ’94 reported in the LA Times:

“This story is beyond ridiculous and completely false. Neither Biggie nor I had any knowledge of any attack before, during or after it happened. It is a complete lie to suggest that there was any involvement by Biggie or myself. I am shocked that the Los Angeles Times would be so irresponsible as to publish such a baseless and completely untrue story.”

Here is a portion of the article that was posted in the LA Times this morning:

Now, newly discovered information, including interviews with people who were at the studio that night, lends credence to Shakur’s insistence that associates of rap impresario Sean “Diddy” Combs were behind the assault. Their alleged motives: to punish Shakur for disrespecting them and rejecting their business overtures and, not incidentally, to curry favor with Combs.

The information focuses on two New York hip-hop figures — talent manager James “Jimmy Henchman” Rosemond and promoter James Sabatino, who is now in prison for unrelated crimes.

Rosemond has long denied any role in the Quad incident. He declined to be interviewed for this article, but his lawyer, Jeffrey Lichtman, dismissed the new information as “ancient double-hearsay allegations.”

Lichtman noted that Rosemond had never been charged or questioned in connection with the attack — a sign, Lichtman said, that federal authorities have “discounted” what the informant told them. Rosemond “was not involved in the assault and will not be prosecuted for it,” Lichtman said. Sabatino declined to comment. Combs, whose business empire includes Bad Boy Records and clothing and fragrance lines, also declined to comment.

The FBI documents do not name the informant. The Times learned his identity and verified that he was at the Quad on the night of the assault. When contacted, the man said the FBI records accurately convey what happened, and what he told investigators. He and the other sources interviewed for this article discussed the events of Nov. 30, 1994, on condition that their names not be published. Their accounts are consistent with Shakur’s own. In interviews and on recordings, the rapper blamed Rosemond, Combs and their associates for the attack and promised to get even.

    I have agreed with Tupac from the muscle that Puffy was involved. I don’t think Biggie was since Puff was running shyt….but I could believe, totally, that Puff was involved.

  • AngelycAries

    I just find it amazing that two people can be shot with plenty of people around, yet neither of their killers have been brought to justice. I don’t know, maybe this will be one of the cases where fifty years from now they’ll know who did it. It’s just sad. Tupac was so talented.

    i believe puffy was jealous cuz tupac and biggie were close. puffy couldnt handle their friendship and puffy’s feelings were / still are borderline “how u doin”……he hasnt admitted it yet

  • Al-Anon

    Diddy sez,

    “I am shocked that the Los Angeles Times would be so irresponsible as to publish such a baseless and completely untrue story.”

    Diddy should be remember that the Los Angeles Times is in the business of selling papers and advertising. It is NOT in the business of selling the TRUTH!!

    However, there is my grandmother’s old adage,

    “the wheels of time grind fine and we all get ours in due time.”

    Many, many people think that they can escape the long arm of justice in life, but you can’t. The scales must always be balanced and all things must be paid for.

  • Sarafina

    Come ya’ll for real? Puff is a lot of things – and can be labled as a lot of things but adding “murderer” to the list? I dont believe it. I think people can take Pacs death better if it’s associated with a hip hop rival conspiracy. Pac’s own people did it to him. That’s what I belive. No east coast west coast crap – just plain hatred.

    jimmy the henchmond is a snake in the grass.he got yayo moms house sprayed.

  • Itdontmatter

    Someone needs to get their history right. 2pac admitted that he was not any good at selling drugs, and when he tried he was living in Oakland. His mother was still in B’more. So she didn’t receive any benefit in that. He further stated that the dope boys simply started giving him paper to get by.

  • I'm Just Me

    A lot of these rappers really didn’t live the life they are talking about.
