Days ago, Daily Mail ran a report alleging Suge Knight’s attorney Thaddeus J. Culpepper revealed the culprits responsible for the murder of Tupac Shakur. The report stated Knight told Culpepper that Pac’s murder was accidental, and that he was the intended target behind the shooting.
Culpepper allegedly wrote in a signed affidavit, “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.”

Culpepper has since come forward to call Daily Mail’s report “fake news.”
“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 obtained by The Wrap. “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.”
Daily Mail reported Suge felt compelled to confess after hearing the “salient points” in the new documentary “Tupac Assassination: Battle For Compton.”
“When our book came out and we were working on the movie, we gave the salient points of the book (Tupac: 187 The Red Knight) to Thaddeus Culpepper, who read them to Suge Knight,” co-director Richard Bond told Daily Mail. “Suge’s initial response was, ‘Who the hell are these guys?’”
“He admitted to Culpepper that the theories in the movie were true,” a source told Daily Mail.
Suge’s son Suge Jr. took to IG account to say the report was false.
The caption on his post read, “This is terrible publicity stunt and these are the same ones that want to keep my father locked up. Tryna Profit Off My Dads life is sick and he deserves his rights and freedom! They never mentioned him getting shot back then now they say this?”
Suge is currently in jail awaiting trial on charges of murder and attempt murder from a hit-and-run incident in January 2015.
