Newly-filed court documents have accused Dr. Dre of setting up Suge Knight during 2014 night club shooting.
Producer and former N.W.A member, Dr. Dre has found himself at the center of very serious allegations, according to the New York Daily News. The website reports that legal documents filed by Suge Knight’s newest lawyer, Thaddeus Culpepper claim that Dr. Dre worked with the L.A. County Sheriff’s Department to have the former Death Row head honcho killed at Los Angeles nightclub, 1 OAK in 2014.
Culpepper has even provided a series of evidence to help in proving the allegations.
The court documents state that video shows Deputy Henry Boyd letting the gunman inside the club. Additionally, according to the documents, the gunman at 1 OAK allegedly confessed to receiving $50,000 from Dr. Dre to kill Knight.
Culpepper also claims that Knight has been without phone, mail, and visitor privileges in an attempt to keep the former music exec from connecting his murder case and the shooting in 2014.
As of today (April 5), TMZ reports that a rep for Dr. Dre has dubbed Culpepper’s claims “ridiculous.”
During the shooting at 1 OAK, which took place during a party for the MTV Video Music Awards, Knight was shot six times. Also in attendance at 1 OAK that night was Chris Brown, Game, and model Tyson Beckford.
Following the shooting, Knight revealed in an interview with TMZ that he wasn’t terribly concerned with finding out the identity of the person who shot him.
“Even if I did, I don’t think that’s really important, who pulled the trigger and who I seen pulled the trigger,” Knight said during the interview. “I think that I’m doing extremely well. I’m happy to be doing well and whatever happens, happens.”
Suge Knight is currently in jail on attempted murder and murder charges.
