On December 28, 1999 in NYC Jennifer Lopez and her then boyfriend Puff Daddy were partying at a club celebrating Diddy’s then protege Shyne releasing an album. Puffy accidentally knocked a drink out of one of the club’s patrons hands which led to a brawl and then gun shots which left three people injured.
J Lo and Diddy fled the scene and almost got away until they were stopped by cops and they found a gun in Puffy’s Lincoln Navigator. Jenny from the block wounded up spending 14 hours in jail and charges against her was later dropped.
Diddy was acquitted of all charges but Shyne on the other hand spent nearly nine years in prison. Although he’s out of jail now, this is still considered one of hip hop’s most scandalous events.
