Dr. Dre, Ice Cube Want No Part Of This Suge Knight Wrongful Death Suit

Dr. Dre, Ice Cube

I mean, who wouldn’t? Good thing Suge is locked up and didn’t see the movie. Ice Cube and Dr. Dre have filed a motion to be removed from a wrongful death suit related to an incident for which Suge Knight faces murder charges. In case you didn’t know, Suge Knight ran over and killed a man named Terry Carter earlier this year, while on the set of Straight Outta Compton.

A lawsuit said the rappers and Straight Outta Compton producers should have attempted to make a safe environment on set, given the hostilities between Knight and Dr. Dre.

“These allegations plainly demonstrate that allowing Suge to remain at the base camp posed a serious risk that Suge could have injured someone at the camp – including Dr. Dre, Bone or one of the numerous cast and crew working on the film,” the rappers’ paperwork said. “Certainly, the risk that Suge might leave the base camp and proceed to his fatal confrontation with Carter was no more foreseeable than the possibility that Suge would injure or kill someone else if he had been permitted to stay.”

Alexander Cote, Dre and Cube’s lawyer, said there was no “proximate cause” connecting his clients to Carter’s death. Knight is currently awaiting trial on murder charges.
