Sean Combs celebrates 40 years at his Ciroc sponsored birthday bash in New York….while the deported Shyne battles to get back to the USA.

The stars were out last night at Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs’ Birthday Celebration Presented by Ciroc Vodka at The Grand Ballroom at The Plaza Hotel on November 20, 2009 in New York City.

It was billed as the “party of the century” to celebrate the four decades of the hip-hop artists life. The  the theme of the party was a “fantasy dreamland”, and by all reports and papparrazi photos, it definitely lived up to the hype.

Diddy planned the party with famed event planner Bronson Van Wyck. Bentley Meeker, the “Wizard of Light”  set the mood with the lighting.

 A few names of the guest who attended the party  included  Queen Latifah, Russell Simmons, Spike Lee, Zac Posen, Lil’ Kim ,Kim Kardashian, Nelly,Tyrese Gibson,Jermaine Dupree, Martha Stewart, Media executive Lorne Michael’s, The Black Eyed Peas,Ice T and his wife,….but no Shyne?

Where is Shyne you ask…well Shyne was deported to his home country of Belize, after spending 10 years in prison for allegedly shooting up a club, after a confrontation was started by Sean Combs at a club he brought Jennifer Lopez and Shyne too.

Shyne was assisted by his father Belizean Prime Minister Dean Barrow.

A quote from reports that…While his immigration status is still under review, Shyne, born Jamal Barrow, must return to Belize despite the fact that his mother lives in New York, where he grew up.

Prime Minister Barrow petitioned the help of Harvard Law Professor Charles Ogletree to assist in the matter of keeping his son in the states. “All the lawyers who were dealing with his immigration problems, they are totally off the case now,” said Shyne’s uncle, Michael Finnegan. “He [Ogletree] has stepped in totally, he was given permission to deal with the situation in all its aspects,” he said…

Sean Comb’s has come forth to state that Shyne has and has always had his full support, and if there is anything that Shyne need from him, like his assistance to get back to the States, that the whole Bad Boy camp will be at his disposal.

Well, reports that Shyne contends that Combs’ support is exactly what landed him in jail!

 He says that since his trial lawyers — Murray Richman and Ian Niles — were indirectly on the Bad Boy payroll, they worked halfheartedly in defending him, so that Combs would look innocent.

The lawyers reject this characterization of their work, and contend they did everything to defend Shyne.

“How do you call a witness to testify against your comrade?” wonders Shyne, who called Myers’ testimony more damaging than any witness the prosecution called. “That don’t make no sense. I’m telling you this woman is lying and you’re saying, ‘Eh, you know, well, she’s helping me.’ But I’m facing 25 years and you’re looking at probation…

Charise Myers, a Club New York security guard who said she fell on top of Sean Combs during the melee. Myers also gave an account of seeing Shyne get into an altercation with Matthew “Scar” Allen — who was determined to be the antagonist in the incident — and then firing shots in the air first…

It was obvious that they were selling me [out] in order to appease [Diddy]. There was a dual loyalty there.”

Shyne has refused to tell authorities who else in the club had a firearm. (

“I wasn’t built like that,” he says about his decision not to “snitch.” “I’m designed a different type of way, and this is not ‘hood philosophy. This is all the way up to the White House, to the Oval Office, you know. There are certain rules that you abide by, and this is the way I was brought up. You don’t sacrifice anybody in order to spare yourself. You just don’t do that.” 

Sounds like what I know to be honorable, not only on the streets, but life in general.

I wasn’t there, I have only read the transcripts from the court case, and that is what I base my opinion on, and if I was a betting man and my life depended on it…I am riding with Shyne.

Hopefully Sean Combs’ can help Shyne get back to work here in the USA,….he certainly knows all the right people to make that happen.

Happy 40th birthday Mr Sean Comb’s…
