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

    big up for the history lines but I think you read too many books without checking the reality. You’ve ever been to Palestine? Palestinians are not ‘black like you and me’ Sorry brotha. They are Middle Eastern people. With that said, would anyone tap DJ Khaled and make him stop using the N word please?

  • Big Mike

    Kaya no disrespect but I sincerely beg to differ…Palestinians look like me and you as well as the mid east look if you want to call it that. BET did a special and its on youtube and you can see yourself, several black palestinians speaking about the conditions that are under there.

  • Kaya

    Are you serious? Are you going to bring up BET in this conversation? BET is the new much better programmed version of the government to brainwash people. Do you not understand the concept? Palestinians are considered to be terrorists so lets put black people a little closer to them.

    And as for the dark skin people in Palestina, they are Bedouins, who are Nomadic Arabs that settled in the territories

  • Big Mike

    No no my sister…don’t fall for eurocentric soundbytes about people of color that make us appear to be only terrorists and everything else negative. They don’t want you to know that the holy land has your black roots in it. Europeans calls us criminals. We both know that isn’t true. So why would we except them calling people of color terrorists? These crackers are the real terrorists!! This is where we need to pry open true knowledge opposed to what they want us to know. Isreal was a black holy land. We were slaughtered and for the most part, removed from it only for it to be taken on by another people. Similar to America and the native americans. As a matter of fact I dont even like using the word America because thats an Italian name itself. But without digressing…Isreal used to be connected to Africa. A body of water was dug up to not only for trade purposes, so they say, but to mainly cut off its connection to black africa. You don’t have to receive what I’m conveying. Everyone has their right to their own way of viewing history. Our black history is alot longer than post slavery. We have been in existence for 10,000 years. 500 years is just a blemish of our existence, which included Isreal. The whole Isreal really belongs to us and not the Rothchilds.

    “Kaya: @Big Mike

    Sorry honey, just because the Palestineans that you see on TV are not dark, don’t get it eff’d up… They are brown people and in the Middle East (which is where Black peoples migrated to when they started to spread out of Africa… that’s why they are brown… smh…), and SOME (which were Mike’s words, SOME) are very dark. Everything he wrote is true, now you do your history fact-checking and come again…

    that is all.

  • BoughieBeech

    ok go email your history debates to eachother…this is a comment section about the news at hand…not a history debate, go do your reserach before you try to educate and before you just agree with someone who is trying to educate!

  • http://www.blogtalkradio.com/wwtf Diva B.

    and btw…

    Just because our very distorted media has said that Paletineans are terrorists, you are a sheep if you chose to subscribe to that theory without understanding America’s role in the shaping of how the Middle Eaast views America. We have raped their lands and their riches, as we did to Africa (hope you don’t wear much gold or diamonds, Kaya) and expect that an oppressed people would not lash out. And Bedouins are also Black people of Middle Eastern descent… like some of us are. Not dissin’ you, just sayin’… that’s why our election is so messed up and Barack had to address this mess today, race & culture of others is still not respected, studied or understood in America as it should be. Being ignorant of another country’s culture doesn’t excuse us nor does it make them wrong or dangerous.
