Suge Knight: Bankrupt, Suing Kanye West

by at . Comments

Suge Knight is picking a fight with Kanye West over a diamond earring - three years after the record mogul was shot and allegedly robbed of it at Kanye's party.

Suge - who recently filed for bankruptcy - blames West for allowing someone to smuggle a gun into his pre-MTV VMA party at The Shore Club in Miami in 2005.

That's where an unknown person managed to shoot the gangsta - whose real name is Marion Knight (seriously) - in his upper right leg, shattering a bone.

According to a suit filed October 30 in US Bankruptcy Court in L.A., Suge claims he lost a 15-carat, $135,000 diamond earring inside the club during the incident.

Now Suge Knight, who claims he was so hurt that he needed to take a private jet back from Miami afterward, is suing for all his bullet wound-related expenses and "for damages for the loss of use and enjoyment of the earring."

Let's hear it for the legal system!
