The fake Tupac Shakur autopsy photo dispute has been settled ... and it could turn into a bonanza for the woman who lays claim to the real pic.
We broke the story ... author Cathy Scott was furious when she saw a Wyclef Jean music video on YouTube with a fake Tupac posing in a morgue with a massive bullet wound. She published the real autopsy pic in her book and feels the fake video diminishes the value of her photo. So she strong-armed YouTube to remove the video.
So here's the settlement. We've learned the director of the music video -- Hezues R' -- has agreed to give her a screen credit at the end, and that's good enough for her. So it's going back on YouTube.
But Scott got a bonus. There's been a huge spike in the sales of her book, "The Killing of Tupac Shakur," which includes the real autopsy photo.
