Suge Knight is now saying that Dr. Dre paid someone $20,000 to have him killed. Dre's lawyers have denied the charge as "absurd."
In legal documents, Suge claims that during a 2016 meeting with a man named Dwayne Johnson (not The Rock) set up by a private investigator Johnson showed Suge a check for 20K from Dre that Johnson said was a down payment on a hit he was supposed to put on him.
Suge also argues that Johnson was in the area in 2015 when Suge ran over Terry Carter with a car and killed him. Which means Suge would have had reason to fear for his life and could be part of his defense from the murder charge he caught after the incident.
What do you think about Suge's claims, and do you think a judge will buy it?
It's a little hard to believe Dre would write a check to a hitman ...
