When the author ran into Roger on a bluff overlooking gated McMansion community Beverly Park, he already knew the details of resident Sylvester Stallone having thwarted Suge Knight‘s efforts to move into a neighboring house around 2001. Based on conversations with the seller of said house and other sources, Gross reports that under cover of the actor’s lawyer and a trust, Stallone swooped in with an all-cash offer that exceeded that of Knight’s by a cool $1 million. But Gross has yet to verify the additional characterization relayed that day by the Cadillac-driving stranger accompanied by a buxom blonde:
Roger told a good story, which may even be true. It goes like this:
“So next thing, Suge and his posse somehow show up at Sly’s door,” Roger says. “You don’t like black people?” one of them asks Stallone.
“No, assh*le, I don’t like you,” Stallone says. At least according to Roger.
