$130 Million Civil Suit Against Diddy & Shyne to Get Under Way

Sean “Diddy” Combs has completed his deposition in the $130 million civil suit filed against himself and former Bad Boy MC Shyne in relation to a 1999 shooting at a Manhattan night club. Shyne was convicted of assault, reckless endangerment and gun possession and sentenced to 10 years in prison after he fired a weapon in Club New York on the evening of December 27, 1999. Diddy, whose honor the rapper was supposedly defending, was acquitted of all charges in the case. According to MTV News, lawyers need to take just one more deposition from Bad Boy employee Derek Ferguson before the trial can begin. The suit was brought by victim Natania Reuben, who was shot in the face during the incident. A judge will have to decide whether or not Shyne acted alone or as part of the Bad Boy collective when he fired his weapon before the case goes to trial. If both Diddy and Shyne are required to stand trial, it will be up to a jury to decide who should bear responsibility for the shooting. Shyne, who did not testify during the criminal trial, may be required to take the stand and testify about the incident. The rapper is currently incarcerated at the Clinton Correctional Facility in New York State, and is expected to be released as early as next year.

    “No Honor Among Theives”!(Puff stole this dude freedom) and Shyne stood up for Puff!!! This is just real weak of Puff to treat this guy in this manner.

  • Trickdd

    Im sher Shyne felt threatin by the guy why else would you pull a gun out and shoot it plus when you got money its a little bit more easyer to pull that trigger when you aint tryin to end up a victim like Pac and you got you life to live for never no how it went down

    Shyne is a real ass nigga for bustin’ for punk-ass Diddy. Diddy could help my nigga Shyne Po in da case with all these mills he got.
    But no, Diddy straight shitted on Shyne for bein’ real and loyal to him. In this world only a few niggas can bust they gun for a nigga.
    Shyne is one of them real niggas out there.
    U will soon be FREE, Shyne.
