Shyne, who is seeking a new trial stemming from an infamous 1999 incident involving Sean ‘P. Diddy’ Combs, his then-girlfriend Jennifer Lopez, and a wild shootout at a Manhattan club, tells The New York Daily News he thinks the problem with his first trial was that he agreed to use the same legal team paid for by Combs. “I was fighting against Combs’ defense,” he says. “People were injured, so somebody had to go to jail. At end of the day, it wasn’t going to be [Combs] because he was paying the lawyers. I never had a chance.” Shyne blames Combs for “telling the jury I was just another artist on his label and that there was no danger that night.” Shyne insists he was righteously defending a friend who’d been threatened.
