He’s also claiming that Dre hired a hitman to kill him
Suge Knight, the former executive of Death Row Records, is suing Dr Dre for $300 million and accusing him of hiring a hitman to kill him.
Mr Knight claims that Dre hired the hitman shortly after he sold Beats to Apple Music in 2014, in an effort to evade a lifetime management agreement that entitles Mr Knight to 30 per cent of his earnings, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
The lawsuit claims that the contracted killer is the same man who shot Mr Knight seven times outside a pre-MTV VMA party at 1 Oak nightclub in West Hollywood.
Another suspected assassin was run over and killed by Mr Knight that happened to be on the set of the N.W.A. biopic, Straight Outta Compton.
Issuing a statement to CNN,Dr Dre’s attorney Howard King claims that Mr Knight and Dre have had zero contact between each other since 1996
