NEW YORK (AP) - The New York City medical examiner’s office has ruled the death of hip-hop mogul Chris Lighty a suicide.
The 44-year-old manager of Mariah Carey, Sean “Diddy” Combs and 50 Cent was found dead in his Bronx apartment Thursday with a gunshot wound to the head. A 9 mm handgun was found in the apartment.
The medical examiner’s office said Friday that Lighty died from a self-inflicted wound.
Lighty had been a major player in the industry for decades, working with pioneers like LL Cool J before starting his own management company, Violator.
Lighty and his wife, Veronica, had been in the process of divorcing and he was also having financial trouble, according to court records.
