Rapper Faked Own Death To Get Out Of Debt?By: Amanda Crum - May 23, 2013
A woman is accusing rapper Tim Dog of faking his own death just to get out of paying back money he acquired through scams.
Esther Pilgrim says the rapper, whose real name is Timothy Blair, was ordered by the court to pay her back to the tune of $19,000 after scamming her on a dating site. Pilgrim says she thinks she wasn’t his only victim, and that he actually owed millions. She doesn’t believe he’s dead due to a shady obituary.
“There was nothing of what you would normally find. What city? Who found him? There was nothing with any type of concrete details,” she said.
Reports originally stated Blair had died from complications of diabetes, but The Source, which broke the story, shows a broken link where the page was. A Mississippi prosecutor has issued an arrest warrant for Tim Dog.
“I need proof,” Steven Jubera said. “I need a death certificate showing that he’s dead, because as far as I’m concerned, he’s alive. Nobody said where he died, nobody said where he was buried, which is very odd for an obituary.”
If the rapper is indeed alive, he will promptly be arrested and thrown in jail until prosecutors can figure out what to do with him.
