Earlier this week, a bold theory made it’s way around the Internet, supposedly put forward by Death Row records head Suge Knight that his ex-wife Sharitha Golden and his former head of security Reggie White Jr. killed Tupac Shakur The source of the story was a piece put together by the Daily Mail that alleged that Suge had signed an affidavit to that effect that was presented by his attorney Thaddeus Culpepper. Culpepper later refuted the report, calling it “fake news” and now Golden herself has stepped out to debunk the rumors.
“I’m so damn sick of getting 100,000 calls about this. No way in hell I would’ve murdered Tupac. For what reason?” she told TMZ in a video. “This ridiculous theory that I had to get half of Death Row …I already had half of Death Row, America. When Tupac died, what did Death Row become after that? Zero. Nothing. A downfall.”
She went on to talk about the negative impact that Suge Knight has had over their children.
“I’ve been going through this for about 20 years with my oldest daughter that me and Suge have together. All her high school years, she got: ‘Oh, your dad killed Tupac. Your dad killed Tupac.’ It’s sad when a person can’t even put pictures of their dad on their social media because they get so many negative [responses]. And now, here it goes, the media done put bull crap out about I killed Tupac now. I have young kids that go to school that now have to hear: ‘Your mom killed 2Pac.’ Let’s stop being ridiculous.”
Golden is the latest voice in a growing chorus to publicly quash the theory. Suge’s own son called recently called the report a lie over Instagram.
