Former Death Row Records owner Marion “Suge” Knight‘s son isn’t keeping his lips sealed anymore. The jailed hip-hop mogul’s kid is speaking out on his dad’s condition behind bars and the mistreatment he’s received.
Suge Jacob Knight went to Instagram Wednesday (February 22) to address his pop’s well-being.
Back in December, reports claimed Suge’s fatal hit-and-run trial had suffered a major setback.
The founder of Death Row Records plans to file his new bail motion in the coming weeks based on a subpoenaed check, new eyewitness testimony and continued health issues, his fiancée Toi-Lin Kelly told the Daily News. “We have a really great shot at our next bail hearing,” Kelly said as she left the courthouse in downtown Los Angeles with Knight’s parents and his sister. “Suge is really willing to go to trial tomorrow. That’s how much compelling evidence we have. We are very ambitious about moving forward to trial,” she said. (New York Daily News)
October reports claimed Suge believed music mogul Dr. Dre wanted him killed.
Suge says he had a lifetime management deal with Dre, which entitled him to a 30% cut of Dre’s entertainment earnings. When Beats came along, Suge alleges Dre tried to cut him out, in part because Apple — which bought Beats from Dre — didn’t want its brand associated with Suge. Dre’s solution, according to the lawsuit, was to hire a hitman to kill Suge at 1 OAK during the 2014 VMAs weekend. Suge was shot 7 times in the abdomen but recovered. (TMZ)
Dre’s legal team almost immediately came forward to address the headline-generating suit.
Suge is suing Dre, Apple, Universal and Tam’s for unspecified damages. Among his damages — 30% of Dre’s take from the Beats sale. Dre got $1 billion, so Suge wants around $300 million. UPDATE: A lawyer for Dr. Dre tells us, “Given that Dre has had zero interaction with Suge since leaving Death Row Records in 1996, we hope that Suge’s lawyer has lots of malicious prosecution insurance.” (TMZ)
