Suge Knight Sues Kanye After Being Shot And Robbed

Posted By on November 12, 2008

    Suge Knight has a new target these days, Kanye West. Suge recently sued Kanye for over $135,000 stemming from a gun shot wound and robbery he suffered at one of Kanye's pre-MTV awards parties back in 2005. TMZ is reporting that Suge filed the lawsuit in October saying he think Kanye is responsible because he says, Kanye allowed the unnamed gunman access through security allowing him to be shot and robbed.

    "As the hosts of the Party, Kanye West and G.O.O.D. Music also owed the guest of the Party a duty to maintain the Party premises in a reasonably safe condition," the suit reads. "While at the Party, shortly after midnight at approximately 12:40 a.m. on Sunday, August 28, 2005, Mr. Knight was in a VIP room at The Shore Club, where he was shot in the upper right leg. Mr Knight did nothing to provoke the shooting, and he is unaware of who shot him and why he was shot."

    In addition to saying that Kanye is responsible, Suge says that an employee of West that night found the earring (which he says is worth $135,000) and kept it. Suge isn't done though, he also wants Kanye to pay for his attorney fees. No date has been set for the trial.
