Suge Knight’s Belongings Auctioned on Reality Show


Suge Knight‘s checkered past with Uncle Sam has entered a new phase. The former Death Row Records CEO, who previously filed for bankruptcy in 2006 and has been faced with legal troubles over the past few years, saw his belongings auctioned off on the A&E show ‘Storage Wars,’ where participants in a niche industry buy storage lockers that have gone into default and resell them to the highest bidder.

Custom-made clothing, a flat screen TV, and a large photo of Knight and the late Death Row artist Tupac Shakur, which went for $100; were among Suge’s things that sold on the show, which premiered last night. Knight had been seven months late on his payment for the storage space in Simi Valley, Calif.

The auction could help Knight, who was checked by the IRS this past March. The government claimed that Knight owed them a whopping $6.58 million in unpaid taxes, a daunting amount considering that he currently only makes an estimated $1,200 per month. His monthly income was revealed after his ex went after him for unpaid child support.

Knight rose to prominence in the early ’90s by launching the careers of Tupac, Snoop Dogg and more through Death Row Records. The 45-year-old’s empire started to crumble after getting sentenced to a nine-year bid for violating his probation in 1997, later being released in 2001.
