June 21 (THAINDIAN NEWS) After quite a few brushes with the law, and civil problems, the rap star who also happens to be a felon, Marion “Suge” Knight was shot in the leg at a party hosted by Kanye West back in 2005, for which he has now decided to sue West for the sum of over one million dollars in damages.

West hosted the pre-party for the MTV Music Awards at the Shore Club in Miami, Florida, at which Suge was shot in the leg by an unknown assailant. At a deposition held on Friday, the two met face to face, but West allegedly had nothing to say. “He [West] basically put his hands over his head and didn’t say anything for six hours. He evidently doesn’t know anything about anything, despite the fact that he hosted the party,” stated Suge’s lawyer, Marc Brumer to ‘Page Six’.

In the lawsuit, Suge contends that West, as well as the Shore Club should have been aware that the party could have produced a “dangerous environment” due to the “widely known history of violent feuding among rapstars.”

Suge had to pay out 5.5 million to artist managers back in 2003, after they accused him of “poaching” their acts. He has also been placed in prison three different times in the last eight years for charges relating to assault. He was also sued for 107 million dollars by Lydia Harris in 2005, after she claimed he had shoved her out of ‘Death Row Record’ which she claims to have co-founded.
