Former record mogul Suge Knight is suing Kanye West due to a 2005 incident, according to TMZ.com.
In the suit, which names Kanye and his G.O.O.D. record label, Suge blames Ye for allowing an individual to sneak a gun past security into his pre-MTV VMAs party at Miami’s The Shore club in 2005.
At the party, the individual managed to shoot Suge in his upper right leg, which shattered a bone. Knight alleges that he had to undergo months of physical therapy, suffered permanent impairment in his mobility, and ended up with significant medical bills – which included the cost of a private jet to transport him from Miami to Los Angeles.
The lawsuit also claims that Suge lost a 15-carat, $135,000 diamond stud earring during the incident, which he includes in the suit as “damages for the loss of use and enjoyment of the earring.“
Spokespeople for Kanye West were not available to comment.
