Suge Knight Bombshell: 'My Ex-Wife Killed Tupac'

Marion "Suge" Knight has sensationally revealed that his ex-wife — along with former Death Row Records security chief Reggie White, Jr. — killed Tupac Shakur. Knight also insists that he was the intended target of the drive-by shooting, which took place in Las Vegas on September 7, 1996.

Knight's attorney Thaddeus Culpepper wrote in a signed affidavit that "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." He added that Knight also has information about Wright's alleged involvement in the Biggie Smalls murder case.

The rapper, who has previously refused to identify the shooter, reportedly decided to speak out after hearing the theories put forward in the documentary Tupac Assassination: Battle for Compton.

Codirector Richard Bond reportedly claimed that Knight admitted to Culpepper that the theories in the movie were true — and said the rapper even sent private investigators to figure out how the writers learned what actually occurred.

According to the film, the drive-by shooting was orchestrated in order to help Knight's estranged wife get control of Death Row Records, the label that was cofounded by Knight and Dr. Dre among others.

Russell Poole, the former LAPD detective who helped uncover widespread police misconduct throughout the LAPD's Community Resource Against Street Hoodlums (CRASH) unit in the late '90s, agrees with the hypothesis put forward in the documentary.

Poole told Vice in 2015 that Wright, Jr., and Knight's ex, Sharitha Knight, orchestrated the murder. Since Sharitha was not divorced from Knight, Poole alleged that she believed that she could take over Death Row Records.

According to the documentary, the 1996 events may have been the first in a history of attempts on Knight's life, culminating in the recent attempted killing of Knight at the 1OAK Club in Los Angeles, where Knight was shot six times.
