Shakur's Mother In Legal Row

Subscribe Tupac Shakur

The mother of TUPAC SHAKUR is facing legal action after allegedly backing out of a deal to sell the rights to the late rapper's life story for a film adaptation.
Amaru Entertainment, which is run by Afeni Shakur, the star's mother and the executor of his estate, is being sued by film production company Morgan Creek.
In papers filed at Los Angeles Superior Court, officials at the production house allege a written contract was in place for the rights to the California Love hitmaker's life story.
They claim Afeni backed out of negotiations, which began in November (08), and is now refusing "to honor and perform a contract of a production of the film based on the life of Tupac Shakur".
The company is seeking unspecified damages.
But lawyers for Amaru have denied existence of any such deal with Morgan Creek - and claim the production company only filed the writ to sabotage talks with other movie studios about adapting Shakur's life story.
Attorney Skip Miller says, "There is no agreement with Morgan Creek, there never was, and there never will be.
"They have scared away Paramount, Fox and others, and we are going to sue them and recover millions (in damages)."
Lawyers for Morgan Creek declined to comment on the allegations.
