Suge Knight Shooting May Have Stemmed From Book Proposal

suge_twitter_400x400Former Death Row Records co-founder/CEO Suge Knight was shot last weekend at a VMA pre-party hosted by rapper Chris Brown. Now rumors are circulating that the incident may have gone down been because Knight was shopping a tell-all book.

According to Page Six, Knight has been trying to sell an autobiography. Knight had a deal with Penguin’s Riverhead Books back in 2002, but the project never came to fruition.

The New York Post has the scoop: “We’re told that Knight — who’s refused to talk to police about last weekend’s shooting — was also recently shopping a movie and had filmed a pilot for a reality show a few years ago, though it’s never aired. ‘Suge doing a tell-all book would be a huge best seller, and probably one of the few things he could do,’ a source told us.”
