Suge Knight Drops Nightclub Shooting Lawsuit Against Chris Brown
The onetime rap mogul was reportedly threatened with a countersuit.
Last year, Knight filed a lawsuit against Brown in connection with a 2014 shooting at 1Oak nightclub that left him with multiple gunshot wounds. Knight alleged that Brown, who was performing at the venue for a MTV VMAS party, failed to provide accurate security thus allowing a gun to get inside. 1Oak was also named in the suit.
According to TMZ, Brown's lawyer Mark Geragos sent a letter claiming that Knight’s suit would be thrown out. He also threatened to file a malicious prosecution suit against the Death Row Records co-founder, which was apparently enough encouragement for him to toss the lawsuit.
Ironically enough, Knight was shot at another party for the MTV VMAs, back in 2005. The 52-year-old Compton native has been locked up for the last two years as he awaits the start of his murder trial which is scheduled to begin in January.
