Suge Knight sues Dr. Dre for `attempted murder`

Suge Knight sues Dr. Dre for `attempted murder`
Washington D.C. [USA], Oct. 25 (ANI): American record producer and music executive Suge Knight is suing Dr. Dre with claims that the hitmaker hired hitmen to kill him.

According to the New York Daily report, the jailed 'Death Row Records' founder claims that Andre Young, better known by his stage name Dr. Dre, wanted him dead to get out of an alleged lifetime management agreement, specifying that Knight should get 30 percent of the millions that Young made by selling his Beats headphones business to Apple and producing 'Straight Outta Compton' for Universal.

Knight accused Young of two attempted murders-one in a nightclub in West Hollywood in August 2014 and then a funded follow-up armed assault in Compton in January 2015.

"Dr. Dre did it. Andre Young is responsible for both crimes," read a statement in the lawsuit filed in a Los Angeles court.

On the other hand, an attorney for Dr. Dre stated, "Given that Dre has had zero interaction with Suge since leaving Death Row Records in 1996, we hope that Suge's lawyer has lots of malicious prosecution insurance."

Knight was earlier linked to another death suit on charges that he attempted to kill two persons during a confrontation.

His new lawsuit names Young, Universal and Apple as respondents, alleging that they reached a "mutually agreeable scheme" that would result in Young somehow severing ties with Knight.

It also accused Young to have employed the men as technical advisors on 'Straight Outta Compton' but paid them out of his own accounts for the alleged hit.

"Knight is informed and believes that Apple, Universal and Young agreed that payments for the armed assault were to be made by Young so as to not implicate Universal or Apple," the cross complaint states. (ANI)
