Suge Knight Drops Shooting Lawsuit Against Chris Brown

Suge Knight has much bigger problems than Chris Brown as his murder trial looms.

(AllHipHop News) Incarcerated rap mogul Marion "Suge" Knight has decided against pursuing his lawsuit against singer Chris Brown regarding a 2014 nightclub shooting.

The Death Row Records co-founder sustained seven gunshot wounds to the abdomen, chest and left forearm in August 2014, when a gunman opened fire at a pre-MTV Video Music Awards party hosted by Brown at the 1OAK hotspot in West Hollywood, California.

A number of other club-goers were also injured.

Last year, Knight, who has suffered various health complications ever since the incident, filed legal papers against Brown and bosses of 1OAK, accusing them of failing to hire adequate security for the bash and for allowing at least one armed person to enter the venue.

According to, Brown's attorneys recently fired back at Knight by insisting he had little chance of a court victory with his case and vowing to sue him for malicious prosecution once the nightclub lawsuit was thrown out.

Knight has since had second thoughts about suing Brown, and has now dropped the lawsuit, through which he had been demanding damages and medical expenses for his injuries.

The embattled music veteran has previously cited complications from the shooting injuries, including a blood clot, in court appearances on an unrelated hit-and-run murder charge.

That case, in which Knight has pleaded not guilty to counts of murder, attempted murder, and hit-and-run for allegedly running down Cle "Bone" Sloan and fatally striking Terry Carter during an altercation in a Los Angeles parking lot in 2015, is due to go to trial in January of 2018.
