Kanye and Suge Knight court fight

Posted April 8, 2010 by JJSaidIt Staff |Category: Kanye, Suge Knight



When you get shot at a party hosted by a celebrity…somebody is getting sued.


Kanye West is set for a court showdown with notorious rap mogul Suge Knight.


Former head of notorious rap label Death Row records, Marion ‘Suge’ Knight, has launched a lawsuit and is expected to seek damages of over $1 million against Kanye and the owners of the Shore Club in Miami, Florida, where he was shot in the leg in 2005.


The incident happened when a still unknown assailant opened fire at the party – which was hosted by Kanye ahead of that year’s MTV awards – and one of his shots hit Suge, shattering the femur bone in his right leg.


The rap entrepreneur claims Kanye and organizers of the party had failed to provide adequate security enough to keep people with guns out of the party.


Suge’s lawyer, Marc Brumer, said: "He’s an icon in the music industry. 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 very VIP party; that just doesn’t meet the smell test in life."


Among the damages sought by Suge are $200,000 in medical bills and compensation for a 15-carat diamond earring, which Suge said is worth $135,000 and was lost in the furore following the shooting.


Both Kanye and the owners of the Shore club deny the allegations.
