Guru’s Sister Speaks Out on Solar

With every piece of information that comes forward, the reputation of Guru's musical partner Solar — the guy who, it now seems clear, actually wrote the alleged Guru "deathbed letter" — takes another hit. Earlier this week, the validity of Each One Counts, the nonprofit organization Solar and Guru supposedly set up together, was called into question; yesterday, Guru's sister, Patricia Elam, explains how Solar, Guru's medical proxy, did not alert the family of Guru's death. Elam says: "[My son] Justin found out on the Internet and called me. I had to call my dad ... [Keith's 9-year-old son] KC found out riding in the car, hearing it on the radio. That's not right if you care about someone. That's not how you treat them. My brother would never have wanted us to find out that way. Never in a million years." [MTV]
