Suge Knight Sues Chris Brown Over Club Shooting

Former rap mogul Marion "Suge" Knight is suing Chris Brown over a 2014 club shooting that left Knight with multiple gunshot wounds.

The lawsuit filed in Los Angeles Superior Court on Monday accuses Brown and nightclub 1 Oak of failing to provide adequate security.

Knight was shot seven times while attending a party at the club that was hosted by Brown.

His lawsuit claims the nightclub should taken special security precautions due to a history of violence at events hosted by the singer.

It accuses Brown of having gang ties and a "well-documented track record of hosting events and/or parties in which violence frequently erupted".

The lawsuit adds: "As a result of the negligence of the defendants, one or more unknown individuals were allowed access to the event with weapons, including firearms."

Knight, who is in jail awaiting trial for murder, is seeking a judgement ordering Brown and the owners of 1 Oak to pay past and future medical expenses for his injuries.

Brown's representatives have not commented on the lawsuit.

The oft-troubled R&B singer has not been implicated in the shooting, and no arrests have been made.

Attorneys for Knight have claimed the shooting led him to flee when he was attacked in his car last year, running down two men and killing one.

Knight has regularly cited complications from injuries suffered in the 2014 shooting, including a blood clot, throughout pre-trial hearings in the unrelated murder case.

The Death Row Records co-founder was also shot and wounded at a 2005 party hosted by Kanye West in Miami Beach.

He sued the rapper over what he claimed was lax security, but a judge ruled in West's favour.

Knight faces a mandatory sentence of 25 years to life in prison if he is convicted in the hit-and-run murder case.

Well, the way they make shows is, they make one show. That show's called a pilot. Then they show that show to the people who make shows, and on the strength of that one show they decide if they're going to make more shows.

Like you, I used to think the world was this great place where everybody lived by the same standards I did, then some kid with a nail showed me I was living in his world, a world where chaos rules not order, a world where righteousness is not rewarded. That's Cesar's world, and if you're not willing to play by his rules, then you're gonna have to pay the price.

You think water moves fast? You should see ice. It moves like it has a mind. Like it knows it killed the world once and got a taste for murder. After the avalanche, it took us a week to climb out. Now, I don't know exactly when we turned on each other, but I know that seven of us survived the slide... and only five made it out. Now we took an oath, that I'm breaking now. We said we'd say it was the snow that killed the other two, but it wasn't. Nature is lethal but it doesn't hold a candle to man.

You see? It's curious. Ted did figure it out - time travel. And when we get back, we gonna tell everyone. How it's possible, how it's done, what the dangers are. But then why fifty years in the future when the spacecraft encounters a black hole does the computer call it an 'unknown entry event'? Why don't they know? If they don't know, that means we never told anyone. And if we never told anyone it means we never made it back. Hence we die down here. Just as a matter of deductive logic.
