LOS ANGELES: Former rap music mogul Marion “Suge” Knight is suing Chris Brown after getting shot seven times at a 2014 party hosted by the R&B singer.
Knight’s lawsuit filed Monday in Los Angeles Superior Court accuses Brown and owners of the nightclub called 1 Oak of having inadequate security during the August 2014 party.
Knight, who is in jail awaiting trial on an unrelated murder charge, was shot in the abdomen, chest and left forearm. In court appearances, Knight has cited health complications related to the shooting, including a blood clot.
Emails sent to Brown’s attorney, Mark Geragos, and the owners of 1 Oak weren’t immediately returned.
The suit contends Brown has a history of hosting events where violence has broken out.
