Former CEO of Death Row Records, Suge Knight who was with Tupac Shakur on the night that he was killed in Las Vegas on September 7, 1996, has claimed that he was the real target of the drive-by shooting that killed Pac, and that his ex-wife Sharitha and former Death Row Records security chief Reggie Wright Jr. were behind it reports The Daily Mail.
According to the directors of the new documentary Tupac Assassination: Battle for Compton, Richard Bond and Michael Douglas Carlin, they have a signed affidavit from Suge’s attorney Thaddeus Culpepper confirming that everything in their documentary is true.
Culpepper reportedly wrote that Suge 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”.
The affidavit also claims that Knight has also alleged details of Wright’s involvement in the shooting of Shakur’s nemesis, Christopher “Notorious B.I.G.” Wallace – in 1997.
Marion Suge Knight, who is currently behind bars since January 2015 on murder and attempted murder charges has always refused to reveal the identity of the person he believed was responsible for Tupac’s death. He has also long been suspected and accused of Pac’s death due to inconsistent testimonies, one of which he suggested Pac faked his own death.
