Suge Knight Says He Was Intended Target in Tupac Shooting, Reveals Alleged Killers

*Suge Knight’s lawyer says in an affidavit that he knows who killed Tupac, and that it was, in fact, the Death Row Records founder himself who was the intended target of the deadly ambush.

Through his lawyer Thaddeus Culpepper, Knight said that his ex-wife Sharitha and Death Row security chief Reggie Wright Jr. conspired to kill him so that they could take over Death Row. But instead, it was Tupac that was hit while sitting in the passenger seat of a BMW driven by Suge during the Sept. 7, 1996 shooting in Las Vegas. He died six days later.

The Sharitha/Reggie Wright Jr. theory was floated in the documentary “Tupac Assassination: Battle For Compton,” which was released on DVD earlier this year. When Knight got wind of the project, he reportedly sent out private investigators to find how the two filmmakers, Richard Bond and Michael Douglas Carlin, knew what happened that fateful night.

“Culpepper told Carlin individually that not only did Knight confirm the events as portrayed in the documentary, which portray Knight was the intended target and Shakur as collateral damage, as true, but also goes on to allege that these 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,” a film spokesperson explained.

Culpepper wrote in a signed affidavit: “Knight has known for many years that Reggie Wright Jr. and his ex-wife Sharitha Knight were behind the murder of Tupac and attempted murder of Knight.” He added that Knight also had alleged details of Wright’s involvement in the Notorious B.I.G. murder case.

Knight is currently sitting in jail awaiting trial for murder charges.

Tupac’s life will be featured in the upcoming biopic, “All Eyez on Me,” due out in June.
