A convicted felon is claiming he shot and robbed rapper Tupac Shakur, reports CTV.
New York City police have begun investigating the online posting, which was posted on the website AllHipHop.com.
The posted claims he was paid $2,500 by another hip hop mogul to rob Shakur outside a studio in Manhattan in 1994, where Tupac suffered gunshot wounds but eventually recovered. He was later killed in 1996 by an unknown killer.
Police are trying to determine if the post is truthful and plan on interviewing the prisoner.
“Now I would like to clear up a few things, because the statute of limitations is over, and no one can be charged, and I’m just plain tired of listening to your lies,” the man says in the posting. ”I still have as proof the chain we took in the robbery.”
This may be a publicity stunt, or simply a confession that’s been eating him up on the inside. Either way, we won’t know if it’s true or not until the police investigate. Just a couple of weeks ago, a fake story was posted claiming Tupac is still alive, so you never know with these stories.
TMZ is reporting that rapper Yung Berg, best known for his hit song “Sexy Can I”, was brutally beaten and robbed while at a house party in Los Angeles.
At 2 a.m. on Monday morning, four men brandishing firearms barged into the house party where police say Yung Berg and friends were partying. The suspects allegedly pistol-whipped Yung Berg, whose real name is Christian Ward, as well as one other party-goer.
It appears that when Susan’s away, the kids will play. The Scottish vocal phenomenon returned home after recording a charity song for Haiti only to find a young teenage boy retreating off her property. When Boyle walked inside her house, she reported that some of her items had been “disturbed.”
Boyle called the Blackburn police, who quickly arrived and detained the 15-16 year-old boy. Shortly after, the boy was released.
For the second time in three months, Lindsay Lohan’s Hollywood home was robbed, according to E! Online. Perhaps she could consider locking all her doors.
Early Sunday morning, three burglars gained access to Lohan’s property and entered her home through an unlocked door. Once inside, they apparently ransacked the house but didn’t nick her more expensive goods. Instead, Lohan posted on Twitter they stole only items of personal value – “just things that a certain old friend knew meant a lot to me,” Lohan Tweeted.
Both Charlize Theron and “Ugly Betty” cutie David Blue were robbed over the weekend.
The New York Post reported that Theron was out of town while her Hollywood home was burglarized. “No suspects were seen, and we don’t have a list property taken yet,” LAPD officer Sara Faden said.
Blue, who plays Cliff on “Ugly Betty,” however, was not as lucky as to be absent from the scene of the crime. He was mugged at gunpoint after the “Betty” Season 2 wrap party, also in Hollywood. Blue wrote about the experience in his
MySpace blog, saying he was very angry but glad he was able to keep a cool head in the moment.
“There’s a sad part of me that is just happy that I got away alive and that my friend wasn’t hurt. There’s another sad part of me that is happy they got me and not America Ferrera, Michael Urie, Judith Light or anybody else at the party with WAY more money than myself. There’s another sad part of me that is so angry that I just want to see these people put behind bars as soon as possible. It’s sad how quickly your life can be affected… and even more sad how angry a few people’s SAD choices can affect people’s lives.
“It bothers me that this was Hollywood. I’ve lived in New York, Astoria, Queens, Florida, Kentucky, Virginia, Texas, all over… and this crap happened in the heart of Hollywood near a MAJOR intersection. I’m just glad we were smart enough to hand over our money so quickly. Because I can tell you, even with a gun in my face, my first reaction was to nail this guy in the face with as many punches as I could muster… but instead I looked at my female friend and realized it’d be better to hand over my wallet and call the police.”
Blue later edited the entry, thanking fans for listening to him vent, and urging them to be careful on the streets.
