50 Cent (L) and Chris Lighty at Marquee Nightclub In The Cosmopolitan on Jan. 7, 2011 in Las Vegas, Nevada.

*50 Cent has hired several private detectives to investigate the death of his former manager Chris Lighty, according to MyFoxNY.com.


Last month, Lighty’s body was discovered with a gunshot wound to the head in his Bronx apartment. The New York Medical Examiner ruled the tragedy a suicide, but Lighty’s brother Dave Lighty has since cast doubt on the finding, insisting, “Nothing is adding up. …I can’t get a direct answer from anybody.”

According to MyFoxNY, 50 has recruited a group of detectives to conduct an independent investigation into the incident, so Lighty’s family can find peace.
