According to a recent interview with the Art Of Dialogue podcast, 1999 Club NY shooting victim, Natania Reuben says that not only was Diddy the person who pulled the trigger and not Shyne, but Reuben contends that the Bad Boy mogul intended to hire a hitman to kill her.

Reuben suffered a gunshot wound to the face during the Club NY shooting in 1999 and won a $1.8 million settlement in a civil lawsuit against the music, fashion, and spirits mogul. Former Bad Boy artist Jamal “Shyne” Barrow served eight years in prison for the shooting. However, Reuben asserts that Diddy was the one who pulled the trigger on that fateful night just days before the turn of the millennium.

In the most recent episode of The Art Of Dialogue, the shooting victim says that the troubled living legend put a hit out on her during the trial, which forced her to relocate.

“I was born in Brooklyn [and] I was raised in Brooklyn,” she said. “I had no intentions of leaving, and probably had this [not] happened, I probably would have never left, but when the District Attorney’s office gets information from one of their confidential informant sources saying that there’s a bag on my head, and I’m calling the District Attorney’s office and I’m calling everybody because I look out my window where I was living in Canarsie, Brooklyn and there’s four, stretched, blacked-out SUVs — I lived on the corner — there’s one on that corner, that corner, one in front of my house, one on the next corner.”

“What should I do? Sit there and wait for them to come get me or submit to the will of people who have my best interest and want to move me and my family to preserve my safety? […] I had businesses. Why would I pick up and just leave everything I knew but for the fact that my life depended on it?”

She also is adamant that even with her criticism of Diddy, it in no way is a claim that Shyne is innocent.

“I said on my TikTok, Shyne did not shoot me because he didn’t, but Shyne is a con artist,” Reuben said. “Everybody’s like, ‘Oh, we knew Shyne was innocent.’ No, you don’t know a damn thing because he’s far from innocent.”
