Marion “Suge” Knight, the former CEO of powerhouse label Death Row, has filed a lawsuit against Chris Brown and the owners of 1OAK, over a 2014 shooting at the venue.
Knight was shot seven times and suffered gunshot wounds to the abdomen, chest and left forearm in the incident at the club.
According to Billboard, the lawsuit accuses Chris Brown, host of the party at the venue, and the owners of the nightclub, of failing to have adequate security, who allowed at least one person into the club unarmed.
The lawsuit states that there should have been a much stronger presence of security at the venue as Chris Brown has a “well-documented track record of hosting events and/or parties in which violence frequently erupted.”
“As a result of the negligence of the defendants, one or more unknown individuals were allowed access to the event with weapons, including firearms,” the lawsuit says.
“As a foreseeable result, gunshots were fired by those admitted into the event and Knight was shot and seriously injured.”
The incident has been referenced several times by Knight and his defense in his current legal troubles, which involve Knight facing a murder charge for running over two men and killing one after allegedly trying to flee from an altercation.
Knight has cited complications from injuries stemming from the incident such as blood clots, and his attorneys have claimed this incident has caused to fear for his life, which ultimately led to him running over two men.
Chris Brown already has his share of legal troubles. He was recently accused by his manager of administering a drug fueled beating without provocation.
