A few days ago, Suge Knight claimed that Tupac Shakur was murdered by his ex-wife Sharitha Golden, along with former Death Row security chief Reggie White Jr. He accused them of organized the killing with the intention of murdering him instead of Shakur in a signed affidavit, according to TMZ. A new documentary coincides with Suge Knight’s accusations. Tupac Assassination: Battle for Compton claims that Golden wanted her husband dead to get control of Death Row Records.
Golden called the accusations ridiculous. In a video posted by TMZ, 49-year-old Golden addressed the claims.
“No way in hell I would’ve murdered Tupac. For what reason?...This ridiculous theory that I had to get half of Death Row...I already had half of Death Row, America. When Tupac died, what did Death Row become after that? Zero. Nothing. A downfall," she said.
In the video, she claimed rumors about both her and her ex-husband have affecting her children. She said her oldest daughter received slack two decades ago.
"All her high school years, she got: ‘Oh, your dad killed Tupac. Your dad killed Tupac.’” said Golden. “And now, here it goes, the media done put bull crap out about I killed Tupac now. I have young kids that go to school that now have to hear: ‘Your mom killed Tupac.’ Let’s stop being ridiculous.”
According to TMZ, Golden has threatened to take legal action against the allegations.
