Sean "Puffy" Combs, who faces weapons charges following a shooting incident at a Times Square nightclub in New York, is still scheduled to appear near the scene of the crime for an MTV millennium celebration on New Year's Eve. Combs is out on $10,000 bail and is set to appear in court on two counts of felony weapon possession on Valentine's Day (Feb. 14). But on New Year's Eve, MTV says the rapper-producer will be ringing in Y2K by performing live at the cable network's "2 Large New Year's Eve Party." No word on whether Combs's steady, Jennifer Lopez, who was questioned in the incident but not charged, will appear.
