Suge Knight’s Wife Says She Never Tried to Get Tupac Shakur Killed
You remember that earth-shattering rumor that Suge Knight's ex-wife Sharitha Golden was actually the mastermind behind Tupac's death? Well, she's not having it. Speaking with the folks at TMZ, Golden shot down any and all theories postulating that she was behind the rap legend's untimely death.
"You know I'm so damn sick of getting 100,000 calls about this. No way in hell I would've murdered Tupac," Golden explains. "For what reason? This ridiculous theory that I needed to get half of Death Row—I already had half of Death Row, America. You know, when Tupac died, what did Death Row become after that? Zero. Nothing. A downfall."
Adding insult to Golden's personal injury is the fact that her kids have gotten teased for the conspiracy theories about 'Pac getting killed by Suge.
"I've been going through this for about 20 years with my oldest daughter that me and Suge have together," Golden says in the video. "About all her high school years, she got, 'Oh, your dad killed Tupac, your dad killed Tupac.' It's sad when a person can't even put a picture of their dad on their social media because they get so many negative responses—and now, here it goes, the media put out bull crap rumors that I killed Tupac now."
The theory has been around for a while now, but it recently picked up more steam upon the release of the documentary, Tupac Assassination: Battle For Compton, which references the theory. Recently reports that Suge's lawyer accused Golden of murdering 'Pac and Suge began to circulate the Internet, but his lawyer has since denied the claims. You can see Golden's response to this conspiracy theory in the video below.
