Former Death Row Records producer Curtis "Kurt Kobane" Couthon made a number of claims regarding Suge Knight and 2Pac's dating life. During an interview with The Art of Dialgue, the producer was asked who the Death Row co-founder used to date before suggesting Knight used to sleep with Halle Berry.
"You've gotta understand who Suge Knight was at this time," Couthon said. "He was a young dude, millionaire plus, so he had access to all the Hollywood women. There was love letters that we found after Suge went to jail when he wanted us to clear out certain things, there was love letters from Halle Berry. I seen those love letters. I seen Halle Berry at the studio, I just didn't know what she was there for. She was into him at the time."
Couthon also recalled 2Pac dating actress Salli Richardson before revealing the late rapper used to ignore Monica's calls because she was only 15 at the time.
"[2Pac] had everybody calling him," he continued. "I mean from Left Eye to Monica -- and Monica was only 15; she wasn't getting callbacks or anything like that -- you can't name no female from '95, '96 that wasn't calling 2Pac. Monica couldn't get back there. She couldn't get the phone calls. I'd be hanging out by the receptionist desk and a lot of times it was Monica calling. She could never get back to the studio. She was too young. She called a few times."
