P Diddy has labelled a report claiming he was behind the shooting of rapper Tupac Shakur in 1994 as “completely untrue”.
A report linking Diddy with an attack on Shakur in New York had been published on the Los Angeles Times website.
According to BBC News, P Diddy responded to the allegations saying: “It is beyond ridiculous and completely false. Neither (BIG) nor I had any knowledge of any attack before, during or after it happened.
“I am shocked that the Los Angeles Times would be so irresponsible as to publish such a baseless and completely untrue story.”
Tupac Shakur was subsequently murdered in a similar shooting in 1996 in Las Vegas.
