Suge Knight was taken to hospital after suffering from stomach-related issues, TMZ reports. The former CEO of Death Row Records was scheduled to make an appearance in court yesterday relating to the robbery charges he is facing after being accused of stealing a camera from a paparrazo in early September of last year along with comedian Katt Williams.
According to his attorney David Kenner, Suge has been dealing with bleeding in his stomach stemming from an incident last August where the mogul was shot six times at 1OAK nightclub in Los Angeles.
“Suge never made it into the courtroom for his robbery case,” TMZ reports. “The judge announced that he’d been transferred from jail to the courthouse, but suddenly fell ill … and had to be taken by ambulance to a hospital.”
It’s been an intense few weeks for Suge Knight to say the least, with news headlines coming in from every direction. To make things a little easier to digest, here’s a comprehensive timeline of his recent events. Remember, this is just the last month, to read about all out Suge’s legal troubles over the years, head here.
Suge Knight was involved in a hit-and-run incident late last month that injured two men and killed his alleged friend, Terry Carter. The situation happened outside of Tam’s Burgers near the 1200 block of West Rosecrans Avenue in Los Angeles, according to reports.
Following such, Suge Knight was arrested on murder and attempted murder charges. His bail was set at $2 million.
After appearing in court on Feb. 3 where he pleaded not guilty to the charges he faced, Suge Knight was rushed to a hospital in Los Angles after complaining about chest pains in the court’s lockup area. However, it was later revealed that Suge’s condition was an intense physical reaction to a potentially fatal blood clot.
Close to seven days later, TMZ broke the news that the fatal hit-and-run incident stemmed from Suge Knight’s portrayal in the N.W.A biopic “Straight Outta Compton.”
The gossip site reported that, “Dr. Dre never asked Suge Knight for permission to include his likeness in the movie ‘Straight Outta Compton’ … and that sparked the fight which ended with the alleged murder in a parking lot.”
UPDATE: According to new reports made by TMZ, prosecutors want Suge Knight’s bail set at an eye-watering $25 million.
The publication says that Suge has been labeled a “prolific and unrepentant criminal” from prosecutors and that prosecutor Cynthia Barnes has filed a ton of paperwork that will support her position. It will all be heard in court on Friday.
As if things couldn’t get much worse for Suge, Barnes also says that the former CEO of Death Row Records has laundered more than $10 million since 2002, according to the gossip site.
