Rap mogul Suge Knight hospitalised

Incarcerated rap mogul Marion ‘Suge’ Knight is back in hospital suffering severe abdominal pains.
The Death Row Records co-founder began complaining of stomach issues on Monday evening (29Feb16) and he was taken by ambulance from his jail cell to the Los Angeles County Hospital to seek treatment, reports TMZ.com.
Few details about his condition were known as of press time, but Knight has struggled with health issues ever since he was shot multiple times while at a club in 2014.
He has been hospitalised several times while behind bars, following his arrest for murder and attempted murder charges at the start of 2015, when he was involved in a fatal hit-and-run on a Los Angeles film set. He stands accused of killing his friend Terry Carter and injuring actor Cle ‘Bone’ Sloan as he raced away from the scene.
Knight’s poor health has also caused him to collapse both inside and outside court on numerous occasions over the past year, while his lawyer claims the 50-year-old is also partially blind.
Knight, whose bail is set at $10 million (£7.1 million), has pleaded not guilty to the charges and is due to stand trial.
It’s not his only legal trouble – he is also facing trial for accusations of robbery, after allegedly teaming up with his embattled pal Katt Williams and attempting to snatch paparazzo Leslie Redden’s camera during an incident outside a recording studio in Beverly Hills, California in 2014, days after Knight was shot at a nightclub.
They were each slapped with a felony robbery count, while Knight also allegedly made criminal threats against the woman during the reported attack. They have both pleaded not guilty to the charges.
