Actor Faizon Love offered some interesting input on what may have lead to the killing of Tupac Shakur 21 years ago.

Love was talking with fans on Instagram Live, which has pretty much become a confessional booth for celebrities. At one point he was prompted to share a memory about Tupac. Fans may have been expecting to hear a funny story, but what they got was a conspiracy theory.

Love said he felt that Snoop Dogg could have “prevented” Tupac getting killed in Las Vegas after a Mike Tyson fight. He claims that Tupac “crossed Snoop” on top of getting into some gang activity in the weeks prior.

“Pac would’ve been alive today had he stayed allies with Snoop and not crossed Snoop,” he said.

As history showed us before, Tupac was involved in a scuffle with some Crip gang members after the fight. Later that night, he was shot and killed. While no one was officially charged with the crime, many believe it was done in retaliation. Prior to that night, Snoop and Pac were not on the best of terms. According to an interview Snoop did with Sway In The Morning, Pac was upset with him for maintaining a relationship with The Notorious B.I.G. during their beef. Snoop said that Pac did not speak to him on a flight from New York to Los Angeles and waved him off when he asked if he was going to Vegas for the fight. It would be the last time he’d see him.

Snoop has yet to respond to Love’s claims.
