Tupac Shakur: Why Did Sekyiwa Shakur File A Lawsuit Against Estate’s Trustee? Update On The Museum Management

The museum is currently touring the nation and is getting good reviews. Before it opened, his sister Sekyiwa filed a lawsuit against Tom Whalley, the executor of his mother Afeni’s estate, who received the estate upon his mother’s passing in 2016. He was one of Tupac’s closest business partners and had been with him since the beginning of his career after being introduced to him in 1991.

Whalley, though, allegedly stole more than $5 million, according to Sekiwya. She emphasized in her petition that although her brother’s personal possessions belonged to her, they were placed in the museum without her consent. Whalley acknowledges that there are pieces, but they are being used as a revenue-generating display at the museum. He adds that Afeni’s goal for the museum is one that he was ultimately able to realize.

The name Sekyiwa is mentioned twice in the exhibit. While the museum is wonderful, according to her attorney L. Londell McMillan, the manner Whalley excited it without Sekyiwa’s involvement was not.

According to McMillan, who spoke to the LA Times, “it appears like [the museum] was done really nicely, extremely curated with a lot of Set’s personal goods.” Michael Jackson and Prince were clients of McMillian before they passed away. “The situation is both sweet and sour. It’s excellent that people can learn more about and see more about Tupac, but the time, presentation, and curation of it ought to have included Set, with her items being displayed alongside his.

 

Accountability: Updates On The Accounting Records Demanded

A judge partially sided with Sekyiwa since Whalley was ordered to provide an accounting of Tupac’s estate. By June 30, Whalley was required to provide a thorough accounting of the trust. He did not, however, meet Sekyiwa’s requirements.

Sekyiwa and her attorneys reportedly stated that the financial record he submitted “falls horribly short of compliance with the legal and accounting standards of the trust,” according to Rolling Stone. They identify jewelry worth at $217,700 without providing a description of the items, stating that Whalley’s figures are for “quite generic categories” of assets. Sekyiwa’s attorneys responded, “Either (Whalley) has the competence or the inclination to adequately account to petitioners, or else he has something to hide.”

Whalley allegedly got $5.5 million from Amaru Entertainment in just the last five years, according to Sekyiwa, who is suing her. The amount is “far in excess of what would be reasonably necessary to employ a suitably qualified third-party to conduct such services,” according to what she claims in her submission.

The team led by Whalley, though, disagrees. According to Tom’s filings, “Over the previous five years, Amaru’s worth has improved by tens of millions of dollars as a direct result of his great judgment and commercial acumen.” The trust dispute hearing is scheduled for August 10.
