Suge Knight Sues Kanye West Over Earring

Hip-hop’s most notorious figure, Marion “Suge” Knight, is suing hip-hop’s reigning rapper, Kanye West, over a 15-carat, $135,000 diamond stud earring that was stolen from him three years ago.

According to the lawsuit filed on September 12 in U.S. Bankruptcy Court in Los Angeles, Suge blames Kanye for allowing someone to smuggle a gun past security at West’s pre-MTV VMA party in Miami back in 2005, where an unknown person shot Suge in his upper right leg, shattering a bone and stealing his earring.

The Death Row Records co-founder, who recently filed for bankruptcy, requests that the earring either be returned or replaced because he has been “deprived of the use and enjoyment of the earring.”
