Photographer Files Lawsuit Against Suge Knight and Katt Williams
The bad news continues to pile on for Suge Knight. Already up against murder charges for a hit-and-run in one incident and robbery charges in another, the former Death Row CEO is now facing a lawsuit from the woman he allegedly robbed.
Last October, Knight and Katt Williams were arrested on the suspicion of stealing a camera from a female photographer in an incident that occurred a month prior. Video footage later surfaced of the alleged incident that shows Suge enraged when photographers were taking photos of his young son. In the clip, he approaches the woman, telling her “I got a bitch to come beat your motherfuckin’ ass,” right before the tape stops. Both Suge and Katt have denied any crime.
According to AllHipHop, the female photographer, Leslie Redden, has filed a lawsuit against Knight and Williams. Redden is suing both men for assault. She also filed a defamation suit against Williams for his remarks to TMZ that she “engaged inappropriately with a child" and is suing the comedian for taking her camera.
This is just the latest in a string of mounting legal issues. Besides the aforementioned problems, that could land Knight in jail for a very long time, he was recently named, along with Ice Cube and Dr. Dre, in a wrongful death suit, brought forth by the family of the man Suge killed, Terry Carter.
