Buyer Beware|

Photo: Tupac Shakur (from his website) | By Stacy Simons Santos, Celebrity Access | Tupac Shakur’s sister, Sekyiwa Shakur filed a lawsuit on Monday alleging Tom Whalley has embezzled millions, per Billboard. Whalley was named executor of Tupac’s estate in 2016 after the death of their mother, Afeni Shakur-Davis.

In the lawsuit, Sekyiwa claims Whalley has embezzled at least $5.5M from Amaru Entertainment (where Tupac’s music is kept), over the last 5 years. The Tupac Shakur Foundation is also named in the suit along with Sekyiwa. Sekyiwa claims Whalley made himself the manager of Amaru Entertainment, Tupac’s record label and the company making a large amount of the money for the Trust. It reads:

“He has effectively embezzled millions of dollars for his own benefit. Whalley has unreasonably enriched himself at the expense of the beneficiaries and in bad faith by taking excessive compensation in a position from which he should properly be barred based on the inherent conflict of interest. Whalley has already received more than $5.5 million that he has paid himself in the last five years through Amaru.”

Whalley’s lawyer Howard King has denied the allegations…
