A man has admitted to shooting rap star Tupac Shakur in 1994 after allegedly being paid $2,500 dollars by James ‘Jimmy Henchman’ Rosemond inside Manhattan’s Quad Studios in November of 1994.
Dexter Isaac, a former friend of Rosemond, is an inmate currently serving life in prison for murder, robbery and other offenses.
Isaac came forward Wednesday (June 15) with the information on the eve of what would be Tupac’s 40th birthday. (Read his statement here.)
He confessed to his involvement in the November 30th, 1994 shooting of Tupac Shakur, after Jimmy Henchman identified him in a statement, relating to Henchman’s indictment for dealing numerous kilos of cocaine.
“I want to apologize to his family [Tupac Shakur] and for the mistake I did for that sucker [Jimmy Henchman],” Dexter Isaac said from prison. “I am trying to clean it up to give [Tupac and Biggie's] mothers some closure.”
Henchman, who is currently on the run from Federal officials, claimed that Dexter Isaac, along with other incarcerated inmates were cooperating with the government in an investigation of his alleged drug dealing activities.
“If the government is relying on informants like Winston “Winnie” Harris, a convicted drug dealer and Jamaican deportee, who came to me and motioned via hand signal that he was forced to wear a wire and begged me to skip town or Dexter Isaac who is serving life in prison plus 30 years, then I’m sure I will not be offered a fair trial,” Henchman said in May of 2011.

(CBS) – Reema Bajaj, a 25-year-old attorney who received her law license last year has been charged with prostitution, according to a report.
Bajaj pleaded not guilty to one felony charge and two misdemeanors Thursday in DeKalb County, Ill., about 60 miles west of Chicago, according to the paper.
Police allegedly found evidence that linked Bajaj to a prostitution incident that occurred in August 2010 when they were investigating another case, reports The Chicago Tribune.
Prosecutors say the Sycamore resident is also charged in an incident that occurred last month, according to The Tribune.
Bajaj graduated from Northern Illinois University Law School in 2010 and was admitted to the bar in November.
She is currently free on bail after posting a $500 cash bond, the paper reports.
Police have arrested two men in connection with a plot to rob and murder British soul singer Joss Stone.
BBC confirms the men, ages 30 and 33, were arrested after police received a report of a suspicious vehicle in the area near the singer’s home in Cullompton, England.
The two were found with swords, maps of the singer’s home, ropes. forensic-style overalls and a body bag in their possession.
“Police attended an address in Cullompton after alert residents notified officers about a suspicious-looking vehicle. Officers attended the area at around 1000 BST and subsequently arrested the occupants of a red Fiat Punto. Major crime detectives are continuing to investigate,” police said
The 24-year old Stone has sold more than 10 million records worldwide. She was recently named one of Britain’s wealthiest entertainers under 30 by the Sunday Times, with an estimated net worth of $15 million.
The singer released a statement regarding the incident saying she was ok.
“I’d like to thank everyone for their concern but I’m absolutely fine and getting on with life as normal while the police continue with their enquiries,” she said.
The host went off on the pair, calling them bandwagon jumpers and homosexuals for partying with Dallas the night they won the trophy. Lil Wayne had been a regular court side at Heat games this season. And Birdman bet $2 million on them to win the championship.
According to TMZ, Shaquille O’Neal may have some old dirt catching up to him from a 2008 kidnapping and robbery by men allegedly hired by the ex-NBA superstar.
Authorities list Ladell Rowles, member of the Main Street Mafia Crip Gang in L.A as one of Shaq’s friends that went on a mission to find and destroy a sex tape that captured O’Neal and other women while he was still married to Shaunie.
Rowles and six other men rolled up on a man named Robert Ross in his Rolls Royce Phantom, used firearms to forcefully kidnap him, steal his jewelry and $15,000 in cash, and ordered him to give them the tape.
How did Ross get the tape? Well the former friend of O’Neal used to let the “Big AARP” in his home to handle his side chick affairs and the security camera caught some of the action. Ross told the cops that the camera recycles and wipes away footage and no evidence really exists.
The threat to Shaq came from a business deal that Ross was apparently cut out of. Ross was supposed to get 50% of any artists he brought for Shaquille’s label but received nothing out of a deal for the act he introduced to them, Ray J.
It gets a little deeper as Ross spilled the beans that he began to have an affair with Shaunie after she separated from her husband and Shaq hired a private investigator to confirm the relationship.
Shaquille O’Neal hasn’t commented on the situation.
