Yesterday we posted an article about court reports which said Jimmy "Henchman" Rosemond had admitted to involvement in the 1994 shooting of hip hop martyr Tupac Shakur.  Today Rosemond's publicist, Sibrena Stowe de Fernandez, refutes these claims in a statement to The Source, and says the journalist involved was just sensationalising for a good story, "This Philips guy is trying to rebuild his torn reputation as a discredited journalist. And let's be clear, obviously folks are going to print whatever none sense they see others print."

Rosemond's publicist continues to reiterate that Jimmy "Henchman" had no involvement in the '94 shooting, which many consider the key event starting the bi-coastal beef headlined by Tupac and Notorious B.I.G. "If anyone knows Jimmy they know he doesn't have a problem with telling folks that and if he did shoot 2Pac he damn sure wouldn't say he didn't do it and if he did, what would be the motive? Jimmy's had more more money than 2pac, he had a street cred that dudes would love to have and he had card blanche with any record label and exec in the business. Why would he shoot Tupac?"

Stowe de Fernandez then adds that the journalist who first broke the story should watch his back "Trust me, when Jimmy comes home, he's going to beat the Isht out of Chuck Philips."

Rosemond was found guilty on all 13 accounts and faces a sentence of life in prison.
