Money, not love, may have provoked the suicide of hip-hop mogul Chris Lighty, who died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head on Thursday.
Lighty, 44, who made millions for artists such as 50 Cent and Mariah Carey, was found dead at his Bronx home after fighting with his estranged wife, sources said this week.
But his distraught wife, Veronica, 36, is disputing the idea the she fought with Lighty before he took his life..

"He was in a lot of pain and he possibly had some financial difficulties," said Norman Downes, a friend who spoke on behalf of Veronica Lighty, who was too upset to speak Friday.
"But they didn't get into a fight that day," Downes insisted.
Lighty's suicide came as he was preparing to move out of their W. 232nd St. home in South Riverdale. The couple was in the midst of a bitter divorce..
The mogul walked out of the house, saying, "I'm tired of this," and walked to the back yard and shot himself in the head with a 9-mm. handgun, sources said.
But Lighty's wife, speaking through Downes, suggested that Lighty's financial problems might have finally pushed the successful entrepreneur over the edge.
Sources said Lighty's money woes included a debt to the IRS that would have cost him more than $300,000 in unpaid state and federal taxes.
When asked if financial problems might have provoked Lighty to commit suicide, Downes said, "The only person that really knows is Chris, and he ain't here."
Lighty's death was officially ruled a suicide Friday.
The Bronx native enjoyed a storied career and once brokered a deal between Queens rapper 50 Cent and the company that owns VitaminWater in a transaction that netted 50 Cent between $60 million and $100 million.
"I am deeply saddened by the loss of my dear friend and business partner," the rapper said in a statement.Money, not love, may have provoked the suicide of hip-hop mogul Chris Lighty, who died... more

Last May, we shared with you photos that 50 Cent Tweeted out from inside his movie trailer for the upcoming movie "Things Fall Apart." 50's gaunt appearance was shocking to the point of being almost unbelievable (see above), and yet he really did shed all that weight to play a fictional University of Michigan football player stricken with terminal cancer. This afternoon, SportsByBrooks got a hold of some still images for the film, which is currently on the film festival circuit, and in one in which he's lying on a hospital bed, 50 looks even worse than in the original Twitpics. Check out the movie stills and poster after the jump.Last May, we shared with you photos that 50 Cent Tweeted out from inside his movie... more
