Rapper faked own death – and it’s not Tupac? Tim Dog is allegedly a walking testament to “life after death.”
Real name Timothy Blair, the “Fuck Compton” rapper passed away on February 14, 2013 from a seizure ignited by complications due to his battle with diabetes, but a woman named Esther Pilgrim accused Tim Dog of faking his own death to avoid paying a debt of $20,000 he owed her.
In an investigative report by Noisey, she stated, ““It’s not really about the money,” Pilgrim stressed when asked why she asked for further proof of Blair’s death. “This affected me long term—financially, emotionally, physically, everything.”
The story begins to take shape when the search for the death certificate wasn’t found in addition to calling the Fulton County Medical Examiner’s office in Atlanta, Ga., (the 46-year-old’s last place of residence), and finding no records of his death. Noisey also called the DeKalb County coroner’s office but their call wasn’t returned.
Purportedly, Pilgrim isn’t the only woman the rapper has “swindled” money from and not repaid for funding his various business ventures. Read the in-depth article here.
