Update: Suge Knight’s lawyer has completely denied making any of the following statements and called theThe Daily Mail’sstory “fake news.” Original story below.
File this under: Big if true. In a newly revealed court affidavit filed by Suge Knight’s attorneys, the former Death Row Records head claims that not only does he know who killed Tupac Shakur, he also claims that the target that evening was actually him. According to a report from the Daily Mail, Suge’s criminal defense lawyer Thaddeus Culpepper submitted an official affidavit that pointed the finger toward the one-time mogul’s former chief of security and his ex-wife. “Knight has known for many years that Reggie Wright Jr. and his ex-wife Sharitha were behind the murder of Tupac and attempted murder of Knight.”
Apparently, Knight caught wind of some of the details laid out in the new Tupac documentary, Tupac Assassination: Battle For Compton, and decided that now was the time to finally set the record straight. The documentary is based on a book titled Tupac: 187 The Red Knight, where it’s posited that the intended target of the shooting that led to Tupac’s death on September 13, 1996, was actually Suge, who confirmed the theory to the filmmakers.
