's manager, Jimmy
"Henchmen" Rosemond is fielding shots to his public image this week,
after new information reveals that the Czar Entertainment CEO has been named as an informant in several court documents.
The New York Daily News reports
that Rosemond has a track record of divulging secrets to both state and
federal law enforcement officials, in order to gain leverage for his
own legal problems. Rosemond's cooperation with government officials
reportedly dates back to the mid-90s and includes snitching on crooked
jail officials to avoid bail-bumping charges, in addition to giving up
information for a reduced sentence in a 1996 gun and drug case in North
The popular hip-hop executive has worked with other high-profile artists, like Gucci Mane
Rosemond's lawyer, Jeffrey Lichtman has attempted damage control by
claiming that the information his client provided to police was not of
any value. "The fact is that prosecutors later claimed he flat-out lied
to them, and they weren't happy about it," Lichtman said. "He met with
[federal prosecutor] for a single session, but there are plenty of
reasons people meet with prosecutors."
In 2008, the L.A. Times ran a story accusing Rosemond and Bad Boy mogul, Sean 'Diddy
' Combs of being involved in Tupac
Shakur's 1994 murder. The Times later retracted the story and apologized for any damages caused to the two parties.
