Hip-Hop Mogul Chris Lighty Found Dead In Bronx Apartment From Possible Suicide

| Filed under: R.I.P.Mariah CareyDiddy50 CentSad Sad


How tragic!!

Music manager Chris Lighty is dead at 44.

His body was found Thursday is his Bronx apartment and the cause of death appears to be a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head.

The hip-hop icon worked with top-tier artists and was the longtime manager of Diddy, Mariah Carey, Ja Rule, and 50 Cent.

He was found shortly before noon and a gun was also recovered next to his body.

We hate to think anyone would ever take their own life but Chris recently divorced his wife and may have been millions of dollars in debt to the IRS.

Many musicians tweeted condolences as soon as they heard the news.

RiRi said:

We cannot imagine how broken-hearted his family and friends must. Our thoughts extend to each of them.

Rest in peace, Chris.

    We need to rid ourselves of the stigma that surrounds mental illness. Chris Lighty lost his fight against depression and could have survived he he got the help he needed.
