Rap & hip-hop music mogul Suge Knight [real name: Marion Hugh Knight Jr.] is being accused of ordering a hit on a Los Angeles man. Knight was just released from jail last week after an arrest for assault with a deadly weapon. Now a man has allegedly accused Suge Knight of trying to have him murdered.
According to court documents filed on Monday, a Los Angeles man claims the co-founder and former CEO of Death Row Records ordered a murder hit on him. The man claims Knight sent “8 guys to come to my house and told them to get me or kill me.” It is unknown whether the man was in any way involved with Knight’s arrest last week on assault charges.
Suge Knight has been ordered to stay at least 100 yards away from his so-far unidentified accuser. The man says Knight told him after he was released from jail that he was “out now and going to take my life.”
Knight is scheduled to appear in court on June 8 in response to the allegations against him.
