Diddy’s Alleged Shooting Victim Natania Reuben Breaks Silence

Natania Reuben is a woman who was injured during a 1999 shooting at a New York City nightclub involving Sean “Diddy” Combs (then known as Puff Daddy) and rapper Shyne. The incident occurred on December 27, 1999, at Club New York in Manhattan. During an altercation at the club, gunfire erupted, resulting in injuries to three people, including Reuben, who was shot in the face.

The shooting led to a high-profile trial. Shyne (real name Jamal Barrow), a then-protégé of Diddy, was accused of firing the shots and was subsequently convicted of assault, reckless endangerment, and gun possession. He was sentenced to ten years in prison.


Diddy and his then-girlfriend, Jennifer Lopez, were also present at the club during the incident. Diddy faced charges of bribery and gun possession, but he was acquitted of all charges in 2001. The trial was widely covered by the media, further increasing the public’s interest in the case and the individuals involved. Natania Reuben spoke on how the District Attorney told her and her mother that Diddy put a hit on her head which led to her having to relocate.

Natania Reuben’s injury and the subsequent trial highlighted issues of gun violence and the legal troubles of high-profile celebrities. Despite being an innocent bystander, Reuben’s name became associated with the infamous nightclub shooting and its aftermath. She describes in the video below how weird things started to happen to her after the shooting such as getting flat tires and declined credit cards.


Shyne who was a rapper on the Bad Boy Records label and is now following in his father’s footsteps in Belize. His father, Dean Barrow, is a prominent politician in Belize, having served as the country’s Prime Minister. He recently spoke about being the fall guy for the shooting, but Natania Reuben reveals in the video above that he also shot an individual in the nightclub.

Shyne was released from prison in 2009 after serving nearly nine years. During his incarceration, he converted to Judaism and changed his name to Moses Michael Levi Barrow. Upon his release, Shyne was deported to Belize because he was not a U.S. citizen.
