LA Times Tupac Report Based On False Docs?


Posted March 26, 2008 - By Frank Meyer

Hey, remember that LA Times story from a few weeks ago that claimed P. Diddy and Biggie were involved in the shooting of Tupac at New York’s Quad Studio shortly before his death in Las Vegas? And how Diddy absolutely denied any involvement whatsoever and said Times and writer Chuck Phillips were 100% wrong and acting irresponsibly?

Well, it turns out the Puffy one has a lot of solid ground to stand on as The Smoking Gun has posted a lengthy investigative piece that claims the report was based on forged documents. The story asserts that mafia connected conman James Sabatino (right), who was supposedly in on the ‘Pac hit, forged the FBI documents that Philips based most of his article on. 

In fact, Sabatino also claimed he provided the FBI reports during the discovery phase of a 2002 criminal case, a federal law enforcement official involved in that prosecution says the FBI had no role whatsoever in that particular case.

So if The Smoking Gun is right and Philips’ report is false, Puffy is exonerated and sure has a lot of ammo for a big, fat lawsuit. Defamation of character, slander, tarnished reputation,loss of income, the list of charges goes on… (me thinks Puffy is about to get a whole lot richer…)

Of course, LA Times managing editor Marc Duvoisin says that the paper is launching its own investigation into the documents....but they probably shoulda done that before publishing it, eh?
