A retired police officer has hinted that Tupac might still be alive.
David Myers, who is in a critical medical condition in hospital, claims he was paid $1.5 million to help the star fake his own death.
Tupac Shakur, or 2Pac as he was known on stage, died after he was hit in a drive-by shooting back in 1996 when he was just 25.
But Myers says he now wants the world to know the truth and from his death bed – he said: “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 claims Suge Knight, who is currently in jail awaiting trial for murder, played a big part in helping it happen.
Over 30 people were reportedly paid to help fake his death – including police, medics and various witnesses.
Myers even claims 2Pac paid $50,000 for a body double to be taken to the morgue. It is not the first time there have been theories that he may not have died.
However, the mystery deepens as it later emerged one of the original websites to report Myers' extraordinary tale is using a fake image to represent the police officer on his deathbed, plunging the conspiracy theory into disrepute.
On September 7, 1996, Shakur was shot multiple times in a drive-by shooting at the intersection of Flamingo Road and Koval Lane in Las Vegas, Nevada.
He had been at the Mike Tyson vs Bruce Sheldon boxing match and been involved in a altercation with gang member Orlando "Baby Lane" Anderson.
A short while later, while en route to night club a car pulled up alongside Shakur's while he was standing with his head out of the sunroof and unknown occupants shot him, hitting him in the chest, pelvis, right hand, thigh and lung.
Earlier this year producer Randall Emmett said: "The script is great and we're ready to make the movie, we're just prepping the logistics."
The movie - which has the rights to use the iconic rapper's music - will cover key areas of his life, leading up to his tragic death .
Emmett added: "I think our story, especially like a lot of biopics in the hip-hop space, will at least tease the beginning of his life, kind of tease his beginnings and kind of the people around him.
"Then go into the key years leading up to the pinnacle of his success - those three or four key years of his rise, and the empire he built.”
Tupac Shakur has sold over 75 million records worldwide, making him one of the best-selling music artists of all time.
Shakur was a vocal participant in the so-called East Coast–West Coast hip hop rivalry, becoming involved in conflicts with other rappers, producers and record-label staff members, most notably The Notorious B.I.G. and the label Bad Boy Records.
