Jennifer Lopez Won't Testify In Diddy Shooting Lawsuit
The singer/actress was dating the hip-hop mogul at the time of the incident, and was present at the now-defunct Club New York when shots were fired in the venue on December 27th 1999, injuring two people. Combs' rap protégé Shyne, real name Jamal Barrow, is currently serving a 10-year jail term after he was found guilty of assault, reckless endangerment and gun possession in the trial following the shooting.
The rap heavyweight was arrested for various charges including weapons violations, but was acquitted of all counts. Combs and Shyne are currently fighting a $130 million civil suit filed by victim Natania Reuben, who was shot in the face during the incident.
Lopez - who was not called as a witness in the 2001 criminal trial - was subpoenaed by Reuben's attorneys in June, and was due to give her deposition on Tuesday.
However according to website TMZ.com, Lopez had "nothing to contribute" to the case, and her deposition was canceled indefinitely - news which has been confirmed by Reuben's lawyer.
The Latina split from Combs shortly after the shooting trial.
