LATEST: JENNIFER LOPEZ will not be forced to testify in a lawsuit filed against her ex SEAN COMBS over his involvement in a 1999 New York club shooting.
The singer/actress was dating the hip-hop mogul at the time of the incident, and was present at the now-defunct Club New York when shots were fired in the venue on 27 December 1999, injuring two people.
Combs' rap protege Shyne, real name Jamal Barrow, is currently serving a 10-year jail term after he was found guilty of assault, reckless endangerment and gun possession in the trial following the shooting.
The rap heavyweight was arrested for various charges including weapons violations, but was acquitted of all counts.
Combs and Shyne are currently fighting a $130 million (GBP65 million) civil suit filed by victim Natania Reuben, who was shot in the face during the incident.
Lopez - who was not called as a witness in the 2001 criminal trial - was subpoenaed by Reuben's attorneys in June (08), and was due to give her deposition on Tuesday (05Aug08).
But according to website TMZ.com, Lopez had "nothing to contribute" to the case, and her deposition was cancelled indefinitely - news which has been confirmed by Reuben's lawyer.
The Latina split from Combs shortly after the shooting trial.
