Shyne feels betrayed by Puffy
In an exclusive interview with The Village Voice, Shyne lashed out at Puff Daddy for not being more supportive during the duo's trial, which ended with Puff walking and Shyne facing up to 25 years in prison after being found guilty of two counts of assault, reckless endangerment and criminal possession of a weapon. Although it had been rumored that Bad Boy was footing the bill for his lawyers, Shyne claims that he paid for his own defense. "Honestly, he never really did anything to help me after the shooting," Shyne said. "As soon as we were indicted, he wanted to keep me away from him. He didn't even want to put my album out. Throughout the trial, it's like, 'You get out of this however you can and I'm gonna get outta this however I can.' It was never, 'This is the young man that used to live with me, be with me all the time, under my guidance. This is the young man who was with me that night, and we are all going to get out of this together.'" Shyne also suggested that some of the defense witnesses lied for Puffy, including Club New York security guard Cherise Myers. "You don't have to prove that I did it in order to prove that you didn't do it," Shyne said in the interview. "She lied for him. Fine. But don't let her testify against me. That's when I couldn't take it anymore. I couldn't believe it. That was it. There was no way I could continue. I couldn't even look at him anymore." Shyne will be sentenced April 16 pending an appeal.
