Actress-singer Jennifer Lopez will not take the stand in the gun possession and bribery trial of her ex-boyfriend Sean "Puffy" Combs, Reuters reports. In a joint statement released by the estranged lovebirds, Combs said, "Since I intend to testify on my own behalf, I feel it is no longer necessary for Jennifer to be involved in these proceedings." Added Lopez: "If [Puffy] and his lawyers change their minds and require me to testify, I will be there immediately to tell the truth." The rap mogul is expected to take the stand Thursday.
