Suge Knight is one delusional person if I ever seen one…. Suge is suing Dr. Dre for $300 million dollars claiming that he had a lifetime deal with Dre to boot Dre hired a hit man to have 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.
According to TMZ:
Dre’s solution, according to the lawsuit, was to hire a hitman to kill Suge at 1 OAK during the 2014 BET Awards weekend. Suge was shot 7 times in the abdomen but recovered.
The suit claims the L.A. County Sheriff’s Dept. questioned a man named T-Moneyabout the shooting, and he told investigators he was paid by Dre to kill Suge. Suge says, despite 37 cameras in 1 OAK, no arrests were made.
Fast-forward to January, 2015, when Suge drove to Tam’s Burgers in Compton. The suit claims Dre and Universal — which produced “Straight Outta Compton” — paid Cle “Bone” Sloan $300,000, insinuating he would take care of the Suge problem.
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.
