Suge Knight, Kanye West Discuss Lawsuit ‘Man-to-Man’
The suit was filed by Knight in 2008, and claims Kanye is responsible for a shooting that occurred at a Miami MTV Video Music Awards party he hosted in 2005, where Knight was shot in the leg and allegedly robbed of a $135,000 diamond earring.
Though the two are scheduled to meet in court on December 6, they reportedly had a six hour “closed meeting” in Manhattan on Friday, but unfortunately were unable to reach a resolution.
“I’m disappointed,” Knight said of the outcome. “I figured I could sit him down, man to man, and get this resolved.”
Though not critically injured, Knight reportedly suffered a shattered bone in his right leg, requiring surgery, physical therapy and over $200,000 in medical expenses, for which he is seeking $1 million as compensation.
Knight contends that he just wants the whole thing resolved in a “positive” way.
“My whole thing is: I’m not here to put nobody behind bars,” Knight said. “It’s time for more positive now.”
