Natania Reuben claims Sean Combs flattened her tires seven times after paying her $1.8 million in the case that wrongfully fell on Shyne.

Diddy's latest lawsuit accusing him of sexual assault and much more started another media firestorm this week. Moreover, many celebrities reacted to this news, whether they were named in this new legal filing or not. One of them is Natania Reuben, who was shot in the face in a 1999 New York club altercation involving the Bad Boy mogul that prosecutors ended up blaming Shyne for. Not only does she claim that Sean Combs was the one to shoot her, but that he ended up harassing her in the years since. It's a very long clip with a lot of allegations and claims about previous lawsuits and this incident from nearly 25 years ago.

Furthermore, for those unaware, this caused a strain in Diddy and Shyne's relationship, one that they ended up working out. "Let me tell you why that is of utmost importance to me," Reuben explained. "Because I am the woman he shot in the face in that December 27, 1999 Club New York shooting. I have told everyone ad nauseam since then, even the surgeon who did the surgery to take the bullet, I got shot in my face with a 9 mm hollow-point bullet called a cop killer.

"I literally told everyone and never changed what I said," she continued. "I watched him, I got [shot] in the face, I watched him fire the gun. I've said it all this time. Even the surgeon who did my surgery testified in the criminal trial that while they were putting me under [anesthesia]. I was screaming, 'Puffy [shot] me in the face.'... Everybody knew he did it, but he paid off the club bouncer and all these other people to hide the video. That's his MO." A jury in Manhattan cleared Diddy of all charges concerning this case in 2001 after rejecting a plea deal and choosing to vouch for his innocence in front of witnesses and through multiple court exhibitions.

Meanwhile, a lot of folks are discussing the New York music executive's relationship with other rappers and industry peers. For example, his alleged ties to Meek Mill caused a lot of sadly homophobic discussion on the Internet. Hopefully the conversation redirects to the actual crimes on the line here.
