A PHOTO of Tupac Shakur lay dying in his hospital bed mysteriously disappeared just after it was taken – fuelling crackpot theories the rapper faked his own death.
Former Death Row Records security chief Reggie Wright Jnr claims a ghoul dressed as a hospital volunteer sneaked into the University Medical Center in Las Vegas to take the snap.

Just days earlier, the rap legend had been hit multiple times in a drive-by shooting in Sin City after leaving a Mike Tyson fight.
Tupac was in lockdown in the hospital’s Intensive Care Unit when the snapper managed to breach his personal security to take the deathbed photo.
However, Wright Jnr claims the woman, who was dressed as a “candy-striper” (a hospital volunteer), was then collared by one of Tupac’s closely-knit team and her camera was seized.
He said: “She got a picture taken, but somebody got to her, one of the security guys, or some guy took the camera from her.”
The photograph- which would have been the last one of Tupac alive – then disappeared and has not been seen since.
Conspiracy theorists believe the fact the photo disappeared is further proof Tupac was not the patient lying in the hospital bed.
The revelations comes days after a new video emerged which claimed to show the moment the rapper switched with a double hours before he was supposedly shot.

Since then, dozens of conspiracy theories have surfaced, claiming he survived the shooting, faked his death and fled the country.
One photograph even emerged which is said to show Tupac the day AFTER the shooting showing him casually strolling through a car park.
The new CCTV footage allegedly shows the singer swapping places with a body double on the night of his notorious brawl in the MGM Grand.
The blurry clip claims to show the rapper “diving into a crowd” at the casino in an apparent attempt to disappear for ever.
It was the same night Tupac and his entourage became embroiled in the fight which many believe cost the rapper his life.
Tupac was caught on film punching rival gang member Orlando Anderson in the lobby of the MGM over claims he had tried to steal a chain from one of his pals.
Security footage showed several people kicking Anderson on the floor and a man believed to have been the rapper and his pals then dashing out of the casino.

Rap record label mogul Suge Knight claims Tupac talked about faking his death[/caption]

However, now conspiracy theorists say that on the night of the shocking fight Tupac switched places with a DOUBLE.
In the crackpot clip an arrow points towards a person who is supposedly Tupac.
Danny, of the YouTube channel WiredUp TV, explains: “Tupac appears to dive into a crowd of people.
“See the way his right leg crosses strangely across the backside his left. This indicates jumping or diving to the ground.
“Before his leg disappears, another Tupac appears and takes off running. He then runs to catch Suge Knight.”
He adds: “You can see another person dressed exactly the same as Tupac.”
It has previously been reported that Suge Knight claimed Tupac talked about faking his death just weeks before he was shot.
The music mogul claims the discussion started during a trip to the Pacific island of Maui, shortly after he signed Tupac to his Death Row record label.
Suge explained: “We was in Maui, you know what I mean, and Pac had, like, never been to Maui. And he got to talking about faking his own death.”
Then a photo resurfaced earlier this year, which appeared to show Tupac walking in public, wearing the same shirt he wore on the night he died.
Reports in 2018 claimed Tupac was hiding out in Somalia alongside Yaki Kadafi, the Outlawz rapper who was killed in New Jersey three months after Tupac’s death.
And at the weekend a video has emerged, apparently showing Tupac rapping on camera, with his trademark nose ring and shaven hair cut.
The man rapping in the video even sports the same styled moustache as Tupac.

The video, posted on YouTube, comes after dozens of alleged sightings of him since 1996.
A recent image circulated online, shows a man around Tupac’s age, playing with three young boys.
He is also bald and has a similarly-shaped face and beard to the late star.
The picture was publicised by YouTube channel Wired Up TV, which describes itself as “the most talked-about Tupac Alive channel in the world”.
Many bizarre conspiracy theories have surfaced about Tupac’s death including claims he is in prison[/caption]
