Just a few days ago, Chris Brown’s after party for the MTV VMA’s got shot up. Suge knight was one of the people to get shot and according to reports, he took 6 bullets to the stomach. According to TMZ, he is already out of the hospital nursing himself back to complete health. Suge apparently left Cedars-Sinai around 6 a.m. on yesterday, August 27. fortunately for Suge the doctors say he won’t need any rehab but will need to have follow-up visits for doctors to monitor his progress.
Katt Williams was at the party and said that Suge was shot while trying to save another attendee and was not the target of the shooting, which police believe was the result of gang violence.
He told TMZ the following;
“I’m pretty sure Suge knows who shot Suge,”. Suge Knight has been accessible every day of his life for 20 years,” Williams explained. “We know who it was aimed at. We know whose life he saved. And we know why they won’t talk about it. If it was gang-related then why didn’t it happen thoroughly? You see there’s parts of this story that just don’t seem to make sense. You’re saying it was gang-related. So, that means somebody’s gang was shooting at somebody’s gang and somebody’s gang didn’t shoot back. That’s your story? That’s not really how gang stuff works, is it?”
It has been confirmed………..Mike Epps will be playing the comedic legend, Richard Pryor in an upcoming biopic.
While Oprah’s role in the film has been assumed to be behind the scenes, yesterday TMZ reported that she’s actually playing Marie Carter, Pryor’s “cruel and abusive lady pimp” grandmother.
Pryor’s widow, Jennifer, tells TMZ … Oprah got hold of the script, and was desperate to play Marie Carter — the woman who raised Pryor in her brothel in Peoria, Illinois … and who was known to beat him. … We’re told Oprah really wanted to play Grandma Carter because she’s anxious to show her gritty side.
