Is Suge Knight Lying? Lawyer and Son Deny ‘I Know Who Killed 2Pac’ Story
Rumors have been swirling around for years on who killed the late Tupac Shakur. Yesterday, it was reported that Death Row CEO, Suge Knight knows who killed the rapper back in 1996.
The Daily Mail published an article that claims Knights attorney Thaddeus Culpepper signed an affidavit that stated Suge was the intended target and not Tupac. In the signed affidavit, Knight claimed that his ex-wife and former Death Row Records security chief Reggie White Jr. killed Tupac.
However, in a statement made to The Wrap, Culpepper denies that he ever made such claims or signed an affidavit.
"Very recently, a press release was issued stating that Attorney Thaddeus J. Culpepper wrote and signed an affidavit regarding the assassination of Tupac Shakur. The writers of the press release also state that the alleged affidavit contains statements from Suge Knight. The press release cites no author," Culpepper said.
He continued, “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. Articles relying on this unattributed press release are without merit.”
Suge Knight's son, Jacob Knight, also spoke out stating that the reports were false.
"My father was the Big protective brother of Pac," he said. "If he knew anybody was after him he wouldn't have pac with him in the first place. These rumors are selfish and unnecessary."
