OMG! Suge Knight is accusing Dr. Dre of hiring a hit man to kill him over Beats headphones! In a new lawsuit filed by the Death Row records CEO, the ‘Kush’ rapper tried to wipe out his co-worker at a club in front of hundreds of people. Read all the crazy details, here.
Suge Knight, 50, and Dr. Dre, 51, started out as business partners, but when a Beats headphones deal went sour, so did their relationship. Apparently Dr. Dre hired a HIT MAN to try and kill Suge at 1OAK nightclub in 2014 after the Beats By Dr. Dre headphones company was sold to Apple, according to TMZ. The report claims Apple didn’t want Suge to be a part of the Beats image anymore, and so, Dr. Dre allegedly tried to have him kill so he could move forward with the tech company’s deal. Suge claims he and the rap star had a lifetime management deal, which entitled him to 30% of Beats profits.

The crooked business deal reached a breaking point the night of the VMA 2014 afterparty at 1OAK nightclub in West Hollywood, where Suge was shot in the abdomen SEVEN times — and survived! Witnesses like Tyson Beckford and Chris Brown say they heard four gunshots fired inside the club, but that only Suge was wounded (which makes it sound like he was a target that night). Suge walked out of the club on his own, and was immediately stopped by a police officer who arranged an ambulance to take him to the hospital where he recovered.
Investigators cornered a suspect named T-Money after the shooting, who claims he was hired by Dr. Dre to kill Suge. Another man by the name of Cle “Bone” Sloan had it out for Suge in Jan. 2015, when the Death Row CEO stopped to grab food at Tam’s Burgers in Compton. Cle reportedly pointed a gun at Suge at the eatery, which is when the record producer ran over him with his car. If what Suge claims in his lawsuit is true, we hope justice is served!
