Kanye, Suge Square Off; Case Most Likely Heading To Trial
A phone meeting between Kanye West and former Death Row Records CEO Marion "Suge" Knight ended in a stalemate and produced no results involving Knight's $1 million dollar lawsuit against the Chicago rapper.
The Associated Press reports that the latest meeting took place yesterday (August 26th) in Miami, with Knight present and West attending by telephone.
According Knight's attorney Marc Brumer, the two sides could not reach an agreement over Knight's allegations that West is responsible for injuries he received after he was shot at VMA party West hosted at The Shore Club, in 2005.
In addition to being shot in the leg during the star-studded party, Knight claims he lost a diamond earring that was valued at $135,000.
Knight's lawsuit claims West is responsible for his injuries because there was allegedly not enough security at the event.
According to Brumer, the case will most likely go to trial.
This is the second attempt to reach a settlement over the dispute. The pair met in a lawyer's office in New York in June, but an agreement could not be reached.
