A Miami federal judge has decided to permit Kanye West the option of not attending a mediation session with Marion "Suge" Knight to resolve the lawsuit filed against him.
You remember - about five years ago, someone shot Suge in the leg at Kanye's house during a party. Since the shooter was never identified, Suge naturally is suing Kanye for a million $$$. Makes perfect sense, right?
Anyway, instead of coming in person, Kanye can just phone into the session from another location. Kanye's reps say this is necessary as the rapper won't be able to be there personally due to some long-standing business commitments outside the U.S.
What's another million bucks, Kanye? Just pay the man so you don't have to be interrupted while you are enjoying the French Rivera or wherever the hell your "business" is taking you?
