Suge Knight's son claims his father would never have put Tupac Shakur in harm's way.
Tuesday, new broke that Suge Knight had allegedly confided that he was the intended target the night Tupac Shakur was murdered. Wednesday, his son Suge Jacob Knight defended his father and called the allegations fake news.
"My father was the Big protective brother of Pac," he posted on IG along with a photo of his father and 2Pac. "If he knew anybody was after him he wouldnt have pac with him in the first place. These rumors are selfish and its unecessary. When you look who is trying to profit off of causing chaos in my family its somebody who doesnt know nor care about my family. Fake news will never get attention but people will stop trying to make a quick dollar off my family, especially off lies. Only negative black stories get broadcasted I see, smh. MY FATHER NEEDS HIS FAMILY AND HIS CIVIL RIGHTS BACK BEFORE WE TALK ABOUT A DOCUMENTARY. #FreeSuge."
The Daily Mail reported that the Death Row Records co-founder has long known that his former head of security Reggie Wright Jr. and his ex-wife Sharitha Golden were "behind the murder of Tupac" and his own "attempted murder."
HipHopDX reports that Knight's lawyer Thaddeus Culpepper echoed Suge Knight, Jr.'s sentiments claiming he "never made any statements regarding Tupac Shakur, nor have I made any statements on my client’s behalf regarding Mr. Shakur, written or otherwise."
This year is turning out to be a big one for the late West Coast legend. Snoop Dogg will induct him in the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame and a Hollywood biopic will hit theaters this summer.
