In light of reports that Suge Knight revealed Tupac’s killers years after the West Coast legend’s murder and that it was actually him who was the intended target of the fatal drive-by, his son Suge Knight Jr. has something to say.

Knight Jr. made a post on Instagram with a picture of his father and Tupac and explained that the former Death Row Records leader would never put ‘Pac in harm’s way and described him as a big brother to the icon.

This claim of “fake news” echoes a statement from Knight Sr.’s lawyer, Thaddeus Culpepper, who was initially named in a WENN article as the one who wrote the affidavit for the claims. In a statement to HipHopDX, Culpepper said he has “never made any statements regarding Tupac Shakur, nor have I made any statements on my client’s behalf regarding Mr. Shakur, written or otherwise.”

Knight is currently in jail awaiting trial for murder charges stemming from a hit-and-run at a Compton burger stop in 2015.
