Kanye West and Marion “Suge” Knight appeared in New York court on June 18th in an attempt to settle a lawsuit over a shooting at a 2005 party in Miami.
According to the New York Post, West refused to speak during a six-hour, closed door session between Knight’s lawyer Marc Brumer and West’s lawyers.
Knight is seeking over $1 million dollars from Kanye West, claiming the rapper was responsible for a shooting that took place during a party he was hosting at the Shore Club in Miami inside the Red Room in August of 2005.
Knight was struck in the leg by an unknown gunman and suffered a gunshot wound which left the Death Row Records founder with a shatter femur that required multiple operations to heal.
Additionally, Knight claims West is responsible for a $135,000 15 karat diamond earring that was lost during the melee, which occurred during the celebrity-filled event prior to the 2005 VMA Awards.
“He basically put his hands over his head and didn’t say anything for six hours,” Knight’s lawyer, Marc Brumer, told Page Six. “He evidently doesn’t know anything about anything, despite the fact that he hosted the party.”
