Let the foolery begins….
Yesterday, Suge Knight was trending on social media over this Suge Knight has claimed that he was the real target of the 1996 drive-by shooting that killed rapper Tupac Shakur, and that his ex-wife and former Death Row Records security chief were behind it.
Here’s an update on the situation.
Suge Knight’s attorney sets the record straight and denies the story.
“Very recently, a press release was issued stating that Attorney Thaddeus J. Culpepper wrote and signed an affidavit regarding the assassination of Tupac Shakur,” Culpepper said in a statement provided to TheWrap on Tuesday. “The writers of the press release also state that the alleged affidavit contains statements from Suge Knight. The press release cites no author.”
“As counsel for Mr. Knight, my duty is to assist him in proving his innocence in his present cases. I have never made any official statement regarding Tupac Shakur, nor have I made any statements on my client’s behalf regarding Mr. Shakur, written or otherwise,” the statement continued. “Articles relying on this unattributed press release are without merit.”
