Earlier this week, reports hit the web that the now-indicted former music mogul Jimmy “Henchman” Rosemond had admitted to setting up the infamous Tupac shooting at Quad Studios in the 90′s. This went hand-in-hand with a confession from a man last year, who revealed he was the one who’d shot Tupac, on Henchman’s orders. A publicist for Henchman has reached out to The Source, however, and is denying any such statement from her client. Details below.

“This Chuck Philips character is the “Howard Cosell” to Jimmy Rosemond. This Philips guy is trying to rebuild his torn reputation as a discredited journalist. And let’s be clear, obviously folks are going to print whatever none sense they see others print. The bottom line is, Jimmy has stated time and time again, he had nothing to do with the shooting at Quad studios and rapper Tupac Shakur. If anyone knows Jimmy they know he doesn’t have a problem with telling folks that and if he did shoot 2Pac he damn sure wouldn’t say he didn’t do it and if he did, what would be the motive? Jimmy’s had more more money than 2pac, he had a street cred that dudes would love to have and he had card blanche with any record label and exec in the business. Why would he shoot Tupac? Certainly not for jewelry, nor money, nor envy of a reputation. Trust me, when Jimmy comes home, he’s going to beat the shit out of Chuck Philips and if I were folks I wouldn’t count him out and show me the proferring statements that they claim say he shot 2pac. What happened to journalists fact checking the stories they run?” – Official Publicist, Sibrena Stowe de Fernandez
