Chris Lighty is dead, according to multiple sources.
There is no confirmation yet, but the Hip-Hop manager to the stars reportedly committed suicide.
A slew of condolences have hit Twitter and other social networks.
Lighty was a staple in Hip-Hop and managed acts like Mariah Carey, Busta Rhymes, Q-Tip, Missy Elliott, and 50 Cent. He was also a member of Boogie Down Productions.
He was reportedly going through a difficult divorce, and it contributed greatly to his stress, sources with AllHipHop.com said. Other sources told AllHipHop.com that Lighty had an automatic, cryptic auto-reply email message that indicated Lighty said he would be hospitalized for an undisclosed ailment as of last night.
Jeff Robinson, former manager of Alicia Keys and Lighty’s friend tweeted, “So very sad about Chris lighty..Great long time friend,fellow bronxite and peer…incredible businessman and person.”
Lighty was 43.
