Chris Brown, the law’s coming for YA.
Former rap music mogul Marion “Suge” Knight is suing Chris Brown and the owners of a popular nightclub on Monday after he was shot seven times at a 2014 party hosted by the R&B singer. OUCH.
Now bear in mind- this is SUGE KNIGHT, one of the shadiest dudes in music, like EVER. Which means Chris’ reputation is getting um, less and less, admirable (no matter how many pics of Royalty he posts to Insta). At least, I hope. Anyhow, Knight’s accusing Brown and nightclub 1OAK of failing to have adequate security and allowing at least one armed person into the venue during the party. Hey, point taken.
Knight survived gunshot wounds to the abdomen, chest and left forearm. The Death Row Records co-founder has cited complications from those injuries, including a blood clot, in court appearances on an unrelated murder charge.
His attorneys say Knight’s fear months after the shooting led him to flee when he was attacked in his car, running down two men and killing one. Knight, who is a two-time convicted felon, is in jail awaiting trial.
The lawsuit does not state how much money Knight is seeking but asks for a judgment ordering the defendants to pay past and future medical expenses for his injuries.
Emails sent to Brown’s attorney, Mark Geragos, and the owners of 1OAK were not immediately returned Monday.
The lawsuit contends 1OAK should have taken special security precautions because events hosted by Brown have a history of violence. It accuses Brown of gang ties and a “well-documented track record of hosting events and/or parties in which violence frequently erupted.”
Brown completed probation in a 2009 felony assault case with Rihanna, and while he’s had a slew of shady s*it happen to him, he hasn’t been arrested since then or really taken to court. But just last week Mike G sued the dude, and now this.
Chris, maybe find yourself a good lawyer and an even better therapist.
