In recent days there have been reports on news channels and various web sites about a lawsuit filed against Amaru Entertainment over the rights to the movie biography of iconic hip hop figure, entertainer and activist Tupac Shakur (2Pac).

Amaru Entertainment has released a statement to clarify this situation. Official Statement by Amaru Entertainment Regarding the Morgan Creek Lawsuit:

We at Amaru Entertainment would like to clarify some of the recent media reports concerning a lawsuit filed by Morgan Creek Productions.  This lawsuit has no merit. We felt it was important to bring the story of Tupac Shakur (2Pac), one of music's most remarkable icons, to life onscreen and, in realizing this vision, we sought to find the best partner who would be true to Tupac's vision and bring his unique story to life on the big screen.

In doing so, we have taken every step to ensure that our partner in this process is committed to the integrity of Tupac Shakur's legacy and, more importantly, that they are the right people. To that end, we have been in discussions and negotiations with several major studios and production companies, including Morgan Creek Productions. However, at no time did we have an agreement with Morgan Creek.

Sadly, Morgan Creek decided to take advantage of this situation and attempt to frustrate our project by interfering with our business relationships. We will not be frightened by Morgan Creek's tactics and we are absolutely confident that the movie will be produced and released. Tupac's story is what Hollywood legends are made of - and we want to make sure that the movie tells Tupac's story like it should be told and lives up to everyone's expectations.

"Tupac touched so many people in his brief life and it makes me feel honored in keeping his message alive.  And I want to do so with integrity - in the right way with the right people," says Afeni Shakur.  "That's what Tupac would have wanted."

This statement has been posted to Tupac Shakur's official websites:

*Tupac’s mother Afeni Shakur helped produce the widely acclaimed documentary, “Tupac: Resurrection” in 2003.
