Either Suge Knight is filing a lawsuit, or he's the subject of one.
According to TMZ, Suge is suing longtime enemy Dr. Dre for allegedly hiring a hitman to kill him back in 2014. The suit follows many years of controversies, arrests, and other legal issues for the rapper.

While Knight is currently behind bars for the murder of his friend Terry Carter in January 2015, he isn't letting incarceration get in the way of his revenge.
According to the scandalized figure, he entered a "lifelong" business agreement with former Death Row Records partner back when the two were friendly. S.K. reasons this gave him a 30% cut of Dre's entertainment earnings, which includes his popular business Beats By Dre.
The 50-year-old went on to allege that the mogul tried to cut him out of the Beats By Dre deal after Apple bought the company. Apparently Apple did NOT want Suge's name and sordid history attached to the project.
Given the tricky predicament, Mr. Knight claims the celeb hired a hitman to shoot him at a party over VMAs weekend. Suge went on to survive the seven shots to his stomach and the shooter was never caught despite there being thirty-seven cameras at the club.
In response to the suit, Dre's lawyer shot back:
"Given that Dre has had zero interaction with Suge since leaving Death Row Records in 1996, we hope that Suge's lawyer has lots of malicious prosecution insurance."
Wow! The 51-year-old's legal rep sounds PISSED.
So, who do YOU believe in this mess?
