Earlier this week, a signed affidavit surfaced in which Knight insists he was the target in the 1996 shooting. He said his ex, Sharitha Golden, and former Death Row security chief Reggie Wright, Jr. orchestrated the attack with the intention of killing him rather than Pac. Why? Well, according to a theory addressed in the new documentary Tupac Assassination: Battle for Compton, Golden wanted Suge dead to acquire control of Death Row Records.
Golden has dismissed the theory, calling it “ridiculous.”
In a video posted by TMZ, the 49-year-old attempted to set the story straight after hearing the allegations.
“I’m so damn sick of getting 100,000 calls about this. No way in hell I would’ve murdered 2Pac. For what reason?” she asks in the video. “This ridiculous theory that I had to get half of Death Row […] I already had half of Death Row, America. When 2Pac died, what did Death Row become after that? Zero. Nothing. A downfall.”
She went on to say rumors about both her and her ex-husband have had a long-running affect on her children.
“I’ve been going through this for about 20 years with my oldest daughter that me and Suge have together," Golden said. "All her high school years, she got: ‘Oh, your dad killed 2Pac. Your dad killed 2Pac.’ It’s sad when a person can’t even put pictures of their dad on their social media because they get so many negative [responses]. And now, here it goes, the media done put bull crap out about I killed 2Pac now. I have young kids that go to school that now have to hear: ‘Your mom killed 2Pac.’ Let’s stop being ridiculous.”
Golden also said she is not litigious, but this incident “deserves [her] attention.” According to TMZ, she has threatened to take legal action.
