Suge Knight Files for Bankruptcy
Suge Knight filed for bankruptcy yesterday (April 4) in an attempt to stop his impending loss of Death Row Records. After Lydia Harris, wife of imprisoned drug dealer Michael “Harry-O” Harris, filed a suit saying that she helped start the label, a judge ordered Knight to pay her $107 million when he failed to disclose his assets. Since Knight failed to make the payment, the judge has said that Death Row will go into receivership. Knight’s attorney claims that filing for bankruptcy will temporarily stop the court from taking control of the label. "Mr. Knight doesn't have 107 million dollars," Knight’s lawyer told the Associated Press. "It remains to be seen what becomes of Death Row."
