Sean '' Combs - Sean 'Diddy' Combs Paid $850,000 To Settle Shooting Lawsuits

Sean '' Combs paid $850,000 (£531,250) of his own money to settle a legal battle with victims of a 1999 New York nightclub shooting, according to newly-released court documents.

The star and his then-girlfriend Jennifer Lopez hit headlines when they were arrested following the incident at Club New York more than a decade ago, and his protege Jamal 'Shyne' Barrow served nearly 10 years behind bars on charges relating to the shooting.

Combs was cleared of any wrongdoing in the criminal case, but he and the now-defunct club's owners were targeted in lawsuits by those who were hurt, and they resolved the dispute last year (11) by agreeing a confidential settlement.

It has now been revealed Combs handed over $850,000 (£531,250) in a settlement worth more than $2 million (£1.3 million), with the lion's share of the money going to bystander Natania Reuben, who suffered severe facial injuries.

She received $1.8 million (£1.1 million), according to the New York Daily News.

The details of the confidential settlement were revealed in court papers filed in New York City after an insurance company went bankrupt.
