2Pac's Mother Files $10 Million Countersuit Against Film Company

Afeni Shakur, the mother of late rapper Tupac Shakur, will be filing a $10 million countersuit against film production company Morgan Creek today (March 16). Morgan Creek filed a lawsuit against Afeni and Amaru Entertainment in February claiming that they backed out of an agreement to sell Tupac's life rights for a film adaptation.

Afeni and Amaru Entertainment have denied Morgan Creek's accusations and according to The Hollywood Reporter, they will be filing their countersuit Monday morning.

Afeni and Amaru claim that Morgan Creek's lawsuit is an attempt to force Afeni to hand over Tupac's movie rights. They also claim that Morgan Creek has sabotaged their attempts to negotiate with other film studios.

"Instead of negotiating in good faith with (Amaru), they sought to obtain the rights by concocting a nonexistent 'agreement' and engaging in heavy-handed threats, coercion and intimidation to interfere with and ultimately destroy the film project," said Afeni and Amaru Entertainment in the countersuit.

Aside from the $10 million, Afeni and Amaru Enter tainment want the court to declare there was never a deal with Morgan Creek.

Representatives for Morgan Creek declined to comment.
