The Shakur family does not play when it comes to their own. Complex reports that Sekywia Shakur — sister of the late rapper 2Pac — has taken legal action against their late mother’s estate executor with accusations of him committing embezzlement. Both Sekyiwa and the Tupac Shakur Foundation claim that Tom Whalley refused to surrender personal items belonging to the legendary rapper, including cars, jewelry, artwork, and more. Whalley became the executor of their late mother, Afeni Shakur-Davis’, estate after she died in 2016. Originally the items belonged to the “California Love” emcee before he passed in 1996. “He has effectively embezzled millions of dollars for his own benefit,” Sekyiwa wrote in court documents. “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.”
