Shyne Maintains His Innocence After Woman Blames Diddy for 1999 Club Shooting

The Belizean rapper, who served 8 years in prison over the infamous incident, insists he's 'the fall guy' for the shooting, but keeps his lips sealed on who actually pulled the trigger.

AceShowbiz - Shyne has spoken up after the 1999 club shooting, for which he was incarcerated for eight years, was brought up amid Sean "P. Diddy" Combs' legal issues. The ex-Bad Boy star, who was the fall guy for the shooting, continues to maintain his innocence but won't snitch on his former mentor.

"I've done my best to put it behind me and to move forward," the rapper, who is now an elected member of the House of Representatives in Belize, said in a new interview. "But it certainly reopens the wounds that I've been saying this all along, everyone knew all along that I was the fall guy."

Shyne urged people to watch videos posted by Natania Reuben, who was shot in the face during the club shooting, but stopped short of blaming Diddy. He stressed, "I'm just saying that I maintained my innocence all this time. I said I was defending myself, I didn't get into who did what, but the victim is telling you who did what and I understand that there are other witnesses."

"I am relieved that people are saying what the truth is, that I did not shoot those people; I maintain that I never shoot nobody, that there were other guns there. I've always said that, that has not changed and that is the testimony that came out," the ex-prisoner said.

Nevertheless, Shyne sent well wishes to Diddy and thanked the Bad Boy Records founder for his contributions to the people of Belize. "I wish him well and I pray for him, and I pray for the alleged victims and if it is true, may justice be served and if it's not, it's a tragedy because a global icon would have been destroyed," he noted.

Back in February, Natania, who was paid $1.8 million by Diddy after the 1999 shooting, claimed the rapper flattened her tires seven times. "Not only did he pew pew me in the face, he also set off a course of harassment against me for the past 24 years," she said in a video.

Natania claimed that the "I Need a Girl" rhymer "paid off the club" and let his mentee Shyne take the fall. "Everyone knew he did it, but he paid off the club, bouncer and club owners" to hide the video, she added.
