WU-TANG MANAGER A GOVERNMENT SNITCH?
Lord Michael Caruso Turned State’s Evidence In ’98, Still Working For Government Prosecutors
A cover story in the Village Voice alleges that one of the Wu-Tang Clan's managers, Michael Caruso (Lord Michael), is a government informant.

Caruso, described in the story as Cappadonna's personal manager, was a witness in the drug conspiracy trial of New York nightclub owner Peter Gatien, who was eventually acquitted on the charges.

Caruso turned state's evidence in 1998, confessing to a string of crimes, including extortion and drug trafficking, during the trial of Gatien, for whom he had worked at the Manhattan nightclub Limelight.

Lord Michael is still working for government prosecutors, and he is currently a witness in the pending racketeering trial against Chris Paciello, a Miami club owner. Caruso is expected to take the stand and testify about Paciello's alleged mob connections when the trial begins in September.

The story also alleges that Caruso has "managed to sucker" the Clan, who have reportedly been unaware of Caruso's moonlighting, and that he has been using the rapper's security staff to protect him from possible reprisals by those he's informed against.
