Tupac Shakur faked his death and is quite possibly alive to this day ... says a retired police officer who claims he helped facilitate this ruse!
And got paid handsomely for it, no less!
Fan-spun conspiracy theories about the unsolved murder (or was it?!) of the rapper have been an Internet staple for nearly two decades.
Some claim that he was slain by the LAPD, or that the LAPD knows who took out the rapper in Las Vegas but is covering up the truth.
Others insist that he is not dead at all.
Count retired police officer David Meyers among those in that camp, but unlike 'Pac fans, he cites first-hand knowledge (or so he claims):
He helped Shakur fake his death!
In his own deathbed confession, Meyers revealed that he was paid $1.5 million for his part in the coverup of what happened that night.
“The world needs to know what I did. I’m ashamed that I let a price be put on my word and I cannot die without letting the world know.”
He was far from alone, however.
In all, Meyers claims that over 30 people were involved in the coverup, including Suge Knight ... who also has said that Tupac is alive.
Among the details the former officer provides is that Shakur, allegedly, paid $50,000 for a Tupac look-alike to be taken to the morgue.
This is certainly to have fans frothing, given the number of Tupac sightings over the years (and we don't mean the Tupac hologram).
Well? What do you think of all this?
Do you believe it, or is it just more fuel to the fire? All we can say for sure is that this may be our favorite piece of 2Pac lore so far.
That's saying something, too, because we've also heard about Tupac's last words ... or maybe they were the body double's?
