Suge Knight Claims Dr. Dre Paid $20,000 to Have Him Killed - blogged by @MsJennyb ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Back in 2016, SugeKnight filed a suit against co-founder of Death Row Records, DrDre, accusing him of hiring a hit man to take him out a few years prior. At the time of the alleged murder for hire plot, Dre had just secured the billion dollar Beats By Dre x Apple deal. However, Knight claims he had a lifetime contract with Dre, which supposedly forced the music producer to cough up $300 million of the deal. In an attempt to skip out on the payment, Knight claimed Dre ordered a $50,000 hit on him, which resulted in the 2014 1Oak shooting of Knight. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Now one year later, Knight is back with similar claims against the superstar record producer. This time, Knight claims Dre paid $20,000 to have him killed. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ In legal docs obtained by TMZ, Knight claims he was shown a check back in July of 2016 that was made out to a man named Dwayne Johnson. He says the check was made out by Dr. Dre to have Knight killed, the same day the music exec fatally ran over Terry Carter at Tam’s. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Knight claims Johnson also told him and a private investigator that the $20,000 check was partial payment for “Dwayne Johnson to participate in my murder,” the documents state. However, according to TMZ, Knight’s allegations may be a ploy to get himself off the hook, as he claims he had reason to fear for his life when he entered Tam’s parking lot. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ As a result, Knight asked a judge to check Dre’s financial records to prove he paid for the hit, however, the judge denied the motion.: Suge Knight Claims Dr. Dre Paid $20,000 to Have Him Killed @balleralert Suge Knight Claims Dr. Dre Paid $20,000 to Have Him Killed - blogged by @MsJennyb ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Back in 2016, SugeKnight filed a suit against co-founder of Death Row Records, DrDre, accusing him of hiring a hit man to take him out a few years prior.

Suge Knight Says His Ex-Wife & Former Death Row Security Killed Tupac - blogged by: @eleven8 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ SugeKnight is reportedly spilling the tea on who really killed TupacShakur. He also reveals that he was the true intended target. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ In a signed affidavit taken by former LAPD detective Russell Poole on July 18, 2015, Knight’s attorney, Thaddeus Culpepper, says that his client has known for years that his ex-wife SharithaKnight, and former DeathRowRecords security chief Reggie White Jr, were behind the shooting that killed Tupac in 1996. Despite Knight initially refusing to identify the shooters, Culpepper says he finally revealed the information after watching a documentary titled Tupac Assassination: Battle for Compton. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “He admitted to Culpepper that the theories in the movie were true,” a source said. He even reportedly sent private investigators to the homes of the filmmakers to find out how they found out that information. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “Culpepper told Carlin individually that not only did Knight confirm the events as portrayed in Compton, which portray Knight was the intended target and Shakur as collateral damage, as true, but also goes on to allege that these 1996 events may have been the first in a history of attempts on Knight’s life, culminating in the recent attempted killing of Knight at the 1OAK Club in Los Angeles, where Knight was shot six times,” a film spokesperson said. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The attempted murder was all an effort by Sharitha and White to assume control of Death Row Records. Unfortunately, Tupac was at the wrong place at the wrong time. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “Suge wasn’t divorced yet, and if he died in that hit, she’d get most of everything,” Russell Poole said in 2015. “So she went to Wright Jr., who was in charge of Death Row and ran it while Suge was in prison.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Poole continued, “[Wright Jr.] has gotten away with it this whole time.
