Suge Knight Sues Dr. Dre For Allegedly Placing Hit On Him

Suge Knight has surfaced back into relevancy and is making some crazy allegations. Suge has now filed a new lawsuit in which he claims that Dr.Dre, his former label mate, hired a hitman to murder him. And according to him, it was all over Dre’s venture, Beats By Dre.

Suge states he had a lifetime management contract deal with Dre, meaning he was automatically entitled to a 30% cut of Dre’s entertainment business earnings. When Dre’s Beats headphones came along, Suge alleges Dre attempted to cut him out of the salary. Especially in part because of Apple–which acquired the Beats company from Dre–refused to have its brand associated with the infamous Suge Knight.

According to Suge’s lawsuit, Dre’s solution to this problem was to hire a hitman to murder Suge at 1 OAK during the 2014 BET Awards weekend. The event where Suge was shot 7 times in the abdomen, but has since recovered.

The suit also claims that the L.A. County Sheriff’s Dept. subsequently questioned a man–named T-Money–about the shooting, and he allegedly told investigators that he was paid by Dre to assassinate Suge.

Suge also says that it’s weird how despite 37 cameras existing inside and outside 1 OAK, no arrests have been made.

This is also connected to the charges that he’s been arrested for in January 2015 after videos emerged the internet of him committing a hit and run. The suit claims that when Suge drove to Tam’s Burgers in Compton during the “Straight Outta Compton” film shooting, Dre and Universal–the producers”Straight Outta Compton”–paid Cle “Bone” Sloan $300,000 to be close to Suge Knight, insinuating that Sloan would take care of Dre’s deal problem with Suge.

As far as that incident goes, it can be seen that Suge struck Sloan with his truck, seriously injuring him. Suge also ran over Terry Carter and killed him, but Suge still claims it was an accident and he was trying to escape an ambush. Maybe the new lawsuit against Dr. Dre is just an excuse for him to get released earlier.
