Suge Knight Recovering After Being Shot at Chris Brown’s MTV VMAs Pre-Party
Marion ‘Suge’ Knight is reportedly in recovery after undergoing surgery in the aftermath of a shooting at Chris Brown’s party in Los Angeles over the weekend.
The hip-hop boss was gunned down at the 1OAK nightclub in the early hours of Sunday morning during Brown’s star-studded bash ahead of the MTV Video Music Awards that night.
Knight was reportedly shot six times, in the stomach, chest and arm, and was taken to the city’s Cedars-Sinai hospital by ambulance. He later underwent surgery and is now recovering in an intensive care unit, according to TMZ.com.
Two other party-goers were reportedly injured, and one was said to be in a critical condition.
Stars including Justin Bieber, Tyson Beckford and Black Eyed Peas musician apl.de.ap were also at the party.
Brown appeared to address the drama in a post on his Twitter page on Sunday , writing, “It’s disappointing that we as a society can’t have fun or enjoy ourselves without any altercations sometimes. Miss me with the bulls**t!!!”
