SAD NEWS: Chris Lighty (Founder Of Violator) Dead Of Apparent Suicide In His Bronx Apartment: - Details Inside


Hip-hop mogul Chris Lighty died Thursday morning after apparently shooting himself in the head in his Bronx apartment, sources told the Daily News. Lighty, 44 — a longtime manager of 50 Cent, Diddy, Ja Rule and Mariah Carey — was found dead inside his South Riverdale apartment about 11:30 a.m., police sources said.

 

It appeared he died from a bullet to his head, sources said. A gun was recovered next to his body.

Law enforcement sources said Lighty — who divorced his wife, Veronica, last year — may have been dealing with financial struggles, including owing about $5 million to the IRS.

 

Musicians began Tweeting about Lighty soon after news of his death spread.

“R.I.P. Chris Lighty,” posted Fat Joe on his Twitter account. “That man saved my life.”

Losing ones life is a sad event, when one takes his own life is a lot different, he wasn't murdered he committed suicide, that's a cowardly way to go out, may sound harsh but there r a lot of other people in the world suffering unspeakable atrocities & they're not killing themselves over it. Yeah it's a sad day, hip hop lost an icon but his kids lost more & he took it away from them.
