Another Day, Another Lawsuit

The week is starting off on an interesting note for Diddy:

After nearly two years, Sean “Diddy” Combs completed his deposition last week in the $130 million civil lawsuit stemming from the 1999 Club New York shooting that sent the Bad Boy CEO’s former protégé, Shyne, to prison. Natania Reuben, who filed the suit, claims the Bad Boy CEO and Shyne (Jamal Barrow, who changed his name in 2006 to Moses Michael Leviy in honor of his Jewish heritage), among others, are responsible for the injuries she suffered that night as a result of the gunfire. Reuben was shot in the face during the melee.

On the night of December 27, 1999, Shyne, Diddy, Diddy’s then-girlfriend Jennifer Lopez and others were at the now-defunct Club New York. A man named Matthew “Scar” Allen approached Diddy’s crew and then tossed a wad of money toward them, taunting the Bad Boy top dog. Reports conflict over what exactly happened next. Shots were fired and three people were hit, causing patrons to hurriedly exit the night spot. Clubgoers fingered Shyne as the shooter, but the rapper argued that a member of Allen’s entourage fired first. Diddy and Lopez escaped the scene in a car, and their driver ran several traffic lights while getting away.

The civil trial could be the first time Shyne, who was sentenced to 10 years in prison after being found guilty on five charges — including assault in the first degree — would testify about the events that took place that night, Michelen revealed. During the criminal trial, Shyne declined to take the stand. However, a situation could result where Diddy would have to pay up and then seek financial compensation from his one-time recording artist Shyne. The club management and the security firm were also named in the civil lawsuit, as was Bad Boy Entertaintment, in addition to Diddy and Shyne.

“Mr. Combs was acquitted by a jury of all charges related to this 1999 incident and we are confident that he will prevail in this civil lawsuit.”

    Jack Tripper check your heritage. The original Jews were black. The white so-called jews we know today adapted the religion. Those jews like the goldbergs and the kleins that own all the jewelry stores here were originally called Kazahs from Germany and Austria for the most part and migrated to Isreal. Many of those crackers didnt get to Isreal until 1948 when Hitler was killing them and putting them in ovens. If you want real truth, Look up the Rome Jew massacre of 66 a.d. where over 1 million black jews were murdered and many fled out of Isreal which was originally a black homeland. Many of the Palestines that are in Jerusalem are black as me and you. Thats why there is a war and separatism right now in Isreal. Those crackers don’t want to live and co-exist with people of color. Its equivalent to Apartheid. We gave all religion to the world. The crackers are called Gentiles in the bible.

    How ghetto. For somebody who is supposed to own a luxury line he sure acts mad niggrish. No wonder they don’t let him in Bungalow or Prive who wants to be around all of that. If I walked in and saw his lil crew I would turn around and walk right out. He needs to stick to parties in the hamptons where he can throw them and invite anyone and everyone he wants.

  • lovely and amazing

    @ tj

    It has been a long time since I’ve heard the word “niggrish”. Indeed a strong word and ironically appropriate here. Sean Combs has certainly misused and mischannelled his power.

    I hope Shyne can use and channel his energy to move forward and up and not lose focus trying to avenge an immoral coward like Sean Combs.

  • Annie

    Wow, she got shot in the face?! There’s a lower burden of proof in a civil trial, and I’m betting that Diddy will have to pay up. When shoot someone in the face, then you have to pay.

    @ Big Mike
