Diddy Settles 1999 Club New York Shooting Case
Over a decade since the infamous 1999 shooting at Club New York, Sean “Diddy” Combs has finally settled with the victims of the incident.
While most of the specifics of the settlement were kept under wraps due to a confidentiality agreement signed by all parties, former Club New York owner Michael Bergos did share a couple details with the New York Post (since he did not sign the legal paperwork). He told reporters that all three victims in the shooting were compensated. Natalie Rueben, who was the most seriously injured of the three, was awarded the most money, with $1.8 million.
Ms. Ruben, who was shot in the nose during the occurrence, says she “suffered seizures because of seven bullet fragments still lodged in her face.”
Former Bad Boy rapper Shyne, who was recently release from jail after serving 10 years for the shooting, and the club were also involved in the settlement. Bergos did not reveal who paid what but he did say that while Barrow and the club’s portions of the settlement were covered by their respective insurance companies, Diddy had to foot the bill himself.
As of press time Diddy has yet to comment on the settlement. —Henry Greenfeild
