Mikey: Rolling Stone is reporting that Shyne is denying that he ever shared a phone call with Diddy or received a visit from him during his incarceration,

“I want it known that this supposed conversation is a figment of Sean Combs’ imagination,” he says in a statement. “He never spoke with me, he never visited me nor would I ever accept a phone call or visit from him. The only way I would do either of those things would be if he stepped up and did the right thing for the victims of the incident.”Shyne

Here is the audio of Diddy telling DJ Absolut that he spoke to Shyne:

UPDATE: (from MissInfo) Shyne’s father, Dean Barrow, the prime minister of Belize, told local reporters that he has written to Governor Patterson requesting help in stopping his son’s deportation. I’m not sure if this is effective because I think Patterson helped Slick Rick while he was a State Senator…but now the Gov is more state than federal? (not to mention, Patterson has his own career issues too)

What was also interesting was Dean Barrow’s admission that back when Shyne was first imprisoned, he asked that his son be sent to Belize:
“Meanwhile Prime Minister Barrow revealed for the first time that shortly after his son Jamal “Shyne” Barrow was sentenced to prison in the U.S.A., he had written a letter to the then governor of New York. In that letter Mr. Barrow said he asked that his son be repatriated to Belize to serve his sentence as that was what Shyne wanted at the time. “That never went anywhere. Just as well as it is now clear that he wants to remain in the U.S.A. to continue his career,” stated the Prime Minister.”
