Tupac Shakur's family members insist that the late rapper, who appeared in an apparition-like hologram at Coachella, could not be a homophobe because he was friends with Gianni Versace!

Suge Knight fueled the rumors by telling radio stations that Shakur stopped working with a certain hip hop artist who Knight believed was gay, reports TMZ. Sources close to the Tupac estate told TMZ that Knight's claims are "totally false."

After Manny Pacquiao's controversial words about opposing gay marriage made headlines this morning, we're glad that Shakur's got nothing but love.
