Hip Hop Mogul Chris Lighty Found Shot Dead due to apparent suicide
The long time manager of 50 Cent, Diddy, Ja Rule, and Mariah Carey was found dead this morning in NYC from what appears to be a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head
His body was found by police around 11:30 AM in the backyard of his Bronx apartment. Lighty was pronounced dead on the scene, where a semi-automatic firearm was recovered.
The death is being investigated as a suicide.
The hip hop mogul had been in an argument with his ex-wife and shot himself in the head.
