Former Hip-Hop mogul SUGE KNIGHT is suing rapper/producer KANYE WEST, blaming the CHICAGO superstar for damages that resulted from a nightclub shooting three years ago, reports ALLHIPHOP.COM.
In AUGUST 2005, KNIGHT was shot in the right leg at KANYE’s pre-MTV VIDEO MUSIC AWARDS party at THE SHORE CLUB, located in MIAMI. Initially some speculated that KNIGHT accidentally shot himself, but that claim was later refuted after eyewitnesses confirmed that at least six shots were fired during the incident. The assailant was never apprehended.
KNIGHT, who sought bankruptcy protection in 2006, filed the lawsuit against KANYE WEST on OCTOBER 30th.
