While Suge Knight is facing a murder charge of his own, the former music mogul is accusing Dr. Dre of hiring a hitman to kill him.
As you may recall, back in 2014, Suge Knight was shot 7 times in the stomach as he partied at Los Angeles’ 1Oak nightclub during BETAwards weekend. Suge recovered, but is saying in a new lawsuit that Dr. Dre was behind it all.
According to Knight, he and Dr. Dre entered into a lifetime management contract which entitled him to a 30% of all Dr. Dre’s entertainment earnings — including his Beats By Dre deal with Apple. Suge Knight says that when Dre signed his Beats deal with Apple, Dre attempted to cut him out because Apple did not want to associate their brand with the Death Row frontman.
