Suge Knight Signs Life Rights to Ray J

Ray J Suge Knight

Yes, you read that right.

Death Row Records’ former head honcho, Suge Knight, has signed his life rights to the R&B singer/Love & Hip Hop reality star, according to TMZ.

Knight’s relationship with Ray J goes back decades and the hip-hop legend trusts his business acumen and ability to choose the right projects for film, TV, book publications and more.

A documentary on Knight’s life and Death Row is reportedly already in the works, as well as one on Tupac Shakur.

There have also been talks on reviving Death Row Records with Ray J at the helm, however, after being bought out by toymaker Hashbro (home of Mr. Potato Head and Peppa Pig) for $4 Billion after acquiring British company Entertainment One (where Death Row Records served as a division), it would be tough to get investors on board. Nonetheless, Knight trusts Ray J’s judgment.

50 Cent recently stated that he wanted ‘in’ on the forthcoming documentary via twitter after TMZ broke the story. “Call me I know what to do with this,” wrote 50. “Don’t nothing move but the money.”

Ray J acquiring Suge Knight’s life rights comes after the entertainer recently inking a $1 million deal with the cannabis crowdfunding company, MarijuanaStock.org, where he will serve as the chief strategic media officer.

Knight is currently serving a 28-year prison sentence after pleading no contest to voluntary manslaughter in 2018. The 58-year-old has been given credit for time served; due to prison overcrowding, the former mogul may be released a little after 10 years.

Sean Combs, widely known as Diddy, has decided to step down from his role as Chairman of REVOLT following accusations of sexual assault by three women. The decision was communicated through an official statement posted on REVOLT’s Instagram page, affirming a commitment to their mission of creating meaningful content for the culture and amplifying the voices of Black people.

“Sean Combs has stepped down from his position as chairman of Revolt,” the statement reads. “While Mr. Combs has previously had no operational or day-to-day role in the business, this decision helps to ensure that Revolt remains steadfastly focused on our mission to create meaningful content for the culture and amplify the voices of all Black people throughout this country and the African diaspora.”

This announcement follows legal action initiated by Cassie, a former Bad Boy artist and Diddy’s ex-girlfriend. Cassie, born Cassandra Ventura, brought forth allegations of control, rape, and prolonged physical abuse spanning over a decade against Diddy (born Sean Combs) on Thursday, Nov. 18. Remarkably, within a swift 24-hour period, the two parties have managed to reach a settlement.

In a statement, Ventura remarked, “I have opted for an amicable resolution, securing terms that provide me with a measure of control. I extend my gratitude to my family, fans, and legal team for their unwavering support.”

Diddy, in response to the amicable resolution, expressed, “I wish Cassie and her family all the best. Love.”

Regrettably, this resolution was shortly followed by accusations from Joi Dickerson-Neal, who accused Diddy of sexual assault and ‘revenge porn’ within a mere 24 hours of settling with Cassie. The complaint details allegations that Combs “drugged, sexually assaulted, and abused” Joi, and fell victim to “revenge porn” orchestrated and disseminated by the rapper.

Adding to the complexity of the situation, a third lawsuit, filed by a Jane Doe, alleges that Diddy and R&B singer Aaron Hall took turns raping her and her friends at Hall’s apartment sometime between 1990 and 1991. A representative for Combs vehemently dismissed this lawsuit as “fabricated claims.”

Diddy Faces Second Lawsuit Alleging Sexual Assault and ‘Revenge Porn’ 24 Hours After Settling Previous Case

Diddy Faces Second Lawsuit Alleging Sexual Assault and 'Revenge Porn' 24 Hours After Settling Previous Case miixtapechiick

In the wake of settling with Cassie just 24 hours after she lodged a federal lawsuit detailing years of control and accusing Diddy (born Sean Combs) of rape and prolonged physical abuse spanning over a decade, a second lawsuit has emerged, once again naming him in connection with sexual assault.

Filed on Thursday, Nov. 23, in Manhattan Supreme Court by Joi Dickerson-Neal, the complaint alleges that Combs “drugged, sexually assaulted, and abused” her, further claiming that she fell victim to “revenge porn” orchestrated and disseminated by the rapper.

The incident, dating back to 1991, involved Dickerson-Neal, then a Syracuse University student. According to her, the assault occurred after a dinner at Wells Restaurant in Harlem with Combs, with whom she had common friends and appeared in a few clips of a music video.

The lawsuit details Combs’ alleged practice of video recording the sexual assault, and days later, a male friend informed her that he had seen the ‘sex tape’ along with others.

Notably, this latest legal action against Diddy arises just 24 hours before the New York Adult Survivors Act is set to officially expire on Friday (November 24).

Responding to the accusations, a spokesperson for Combs stated to CNN, “This last-minute lawsuit is an example of how a well-intentioned law can be turned on its head. Mr. Combs never assaulted her, and she implicates companies that did not exist.”

The spokesperson further asserted to Variety, “These are fabricated claims falsely alleging misconduct from over 30 years ago and filed at the last minute. This is nothing but a money grab. Because of Mr. Combs’ fame and success, he is an easy target for anonymous accusers who lie without conscience or consequence for financial benefit. The New York Legislature surely did not intend or expect the Adult Survivors Act to be exploited by scammers. The public should be skeptical and not rush to accept these bogus allegations.”

Just a day after Cassie, born Cassandra Ventura, initiated legal proceedings against Diddy, born Sean Combs, alleging years of control and accusing him of rape and prolonged physical abuse spanning over a decade, the two parties have reached a settlement.

In a statement, Ventura expressed, “I have chosen to resolve this matter amicably, securing terms that afford me a measure of control. I extend my gratitude to my family, fans, and legal team for their unwavering support.”

Combs also issued a release acknowledging the amicable resolution, stating, “I wish Cassie and her family all the best. Love.”

The lawsuit detailed a distressing pattern of control and abuse by Diddy, encompassing substance coercion, physical assault, and coercive sexual encounters.

Specifically, the legal document outlined a troubling practice termed “voyeurism,” where Diddy allegedly coerced Cassie into engaging in sexual activities with male prostitutes while he watched, recorded, and took photographs. These encounters, referred to as “freak offs,” occurred in high-end hotels and Diddy’s residences across the United States and involved elaborate costumes.

The legal filing ended with an account of an alleged rape in 2018, following a dinner meeting between Diddy and Cassie. The suit claimed that Diddy forced himself into her apartment, despite her repeated objections, and raped her. The relationship ended shortly after.

“After years in silence and darkness, I am finally ready to tell my story, and to speak up on behalf of myself and for the benefit of other women who face violence and abuse in their relationships,” Cassie stated on Thursday. “With the expiration of New York’s Adult Survivors Act fast approaching, it became clear that this was an opportunity to speak up about the trauma I have experienced and that I will be recovering from for the rest of my life.”

Subsequently, Cassie married personal trainer Alex Fine the following year and now has two children. According to the complaint, her association with Bad Boy Records concluded in 2019.

Wigdor, Ventura’s lawyer, commended his client for her courage in coming forward with her claims. “I am very proud of Ms. Ventura for having the strength to go public with her lawsuit,” he said in a statement on Friday.
