Tupac’s Sister, Sekyiwa Shakur, And The Tupac Shakur Foundation Are Suing Executor Of The Rapper’s Estate, Tom Whalley, For Allegedly Embezzling Millions Of Dollars

Sekyiwa Shakur, Sister of the late rapper Tupac Shakur has filed a lawsuit against the longtime executor of Tupac’s estate, accusing him of embezzling millions of dollars from the estate.

The lawsuit was filed on Monday in a Los Angeles superior court (via Billboard), Sekyiwa Shakur,  the sister of Tupac and the daughter of Shakur’s mother Afeni — and the Tupac Shakur Foundation alleged that Tom Whalley, who has been serving as executor of Tupac’s estate since Afeni’s death in 2016, of taking $5.5 million over the past five years from Amaru Entertainment, a record label founded by Afeni and now managed by Whalley that is charged with Tupac’s classic LPs and posthumous albums.

“Whalley has already received more than $5.5 million that he has paid himself in the last five years through Amaru,” the lawsuit states. “He has effectively embezzled millions of dollars for his own benefit well in excess of what would be reasonably necessary to retain a properly qualified third-party to perform such services. As a result, 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.”

After Tupac’s death, Afeni became the sole beneficiary of Tupac’s estate.

When Afeni passed away in 2016, all her “tangible assets” were left to Sekyiwa, who argued in the new suit that they should include the items that Afeni inherited from Tupac.

However, according to Sekyiwa, there is a hold-up by the Whalley-run estate in regards to these items being held back for “investment purposes.”

“Among those items are: Tupac’s cars; a multitude of plaques and awards (including but not limited to so-called Golden Records; Tupac’s pinballs and games; Tupac’s renowned jewelry; Tupac’s artwork and sculptures; items of Tupac’s clothing, shoes and accessories; and furniture taken from his homes upon his demise,” the lawsuit states.

The lawsuit also cites numerous instances of alleged “malfeasance,” including allowing the sale of an estate-owned houseboat to benefit one of its trustees instead of the trust itself.

Sekyiwa’s lawyers Donald David and Joshua Mandel also accuse the Tupac estate of not sharing financial information with the non-profit Tupac Shakur Foundation, of which Sekyiwa is the president; the estate has argued that the Foundation is not entitled to that information.
