Written by torresanz on August 31, 2021
Former Bad Boy Records artist Shyne was recently welcomed back to the United States nearly 10 years after being deported to his home country of Belize. But it was an arduous road to not only secure his freedom from prison but also get to a point where he could talk to Diddy again.
In 1999, Shyne, Diddy and his then-girlfriend Jennifer Lopez went to a Manhattan nightclub where a shooting took place. Shyne, just 20 at the time, was forced to make the rash decision to either defend himself and his friends or risk getting shot by alleged instigator Matthew “Scar” Allen. So, he pulled the trigger.
While no one was killed, three people were injured, and Shyne was ultimately charged with attempted murder, assault and reckless endangerment. But Diddy, who was also arrested that night, was acquitted of all charges and their friendship was never the same. In fact, Shyne severed all ties with Diddy and Bad Boy Records.
