Yesterday word broke that Suge Knight finally admitted that he knew who killed Tupac. Now his lawyer is denying those claims.
The Daily Mail published a piece saying that Knight, through a signed affidavit, confirmed a theory that he was the intended target of the 1996 Las Vegas shooting that left Tupac Shakur dead. Hence, revealing that he knew who the killers were.
Now, the same lawyer that was suspected of having that affidavit has come out to deny the report. In a statement made to The Wrap, attorney Thaddeus J. Culpepper says:
“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. 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. [T]hat affidavit is fake news.”
Suge’s son Jacob Knight also came out calling the reports false.
