Suge Knight Sues Kanye West for $1 Million


One of hip-hop’s most notorious characters is suing rapper Kanye West and a Miami nightclub for injuries sustained in a shooting five years ago. Marion “Suge” Knight, founder of Death Row Records, was shot in August 2005 at a party hosted by West at the Shore Club.

No one has ever been arrested in connection with the attack, which left Knight with a shattered femur and more than $200,000 (£131,570) in medical bills, according to his lawyer. He also apparently lost an, er, earring. Attorney Marc Brumer claims West and the Miami Beach nightclub provided insufficient security for the event, held before the MTV video music awards and attended by stars such as Jessica Alba and the Black Eyed Peas. Knight is seeking damages “well over” $1m.

“[Knight] is an icon in the music industry,” Brumer told the court. “He walks in a room and he lights it up. He had an expectation of security there. How someone came with a gun into a VIP party, that just doesn’t meet the smell test in life.” Full Story at Guardian
