Earlier this week, we reported about Jimmy "Henchman" Rosemond admitting his involvement in the 1994 Quad Studios robbery and shooting of Tupac Shakur. It was during a proffer session last fall when prosecuters claim he confessed information about the crime in order to possibly receive a reduced sentence on other charges.

Now Sibrena Stowe de Fernandez, who is Rosemond’s publicist, shared her side of the story, denying any confession was ever made. In her statement, she questions the journalistic standards of Chuck Philips for publishing false information and expects Rosemond to clear his name when he comes home from federal prison in Brooklyn.

"This Chuck Philips character is the "Howard Cosell" to Jimmy Rosemond. This Philips guy is trying to rebuild his torn reputation as a discredited journalist. And let's be clear, obviously folks are going to print whatever none sense they see others print. The bottom line is, Jimmy has stated time and time again, he had nothing to do with the shooting at Quad studios and rapper Tupac Shakur."
