Suge Sues Kanye: Your Fault I Got Shot, Robbed

11/12/2008 7:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Suge Knight is picking a nasty fight with Kanye West over a diamond earring -- 3 years after the broke-ass record mogul was shot and then allegedly robbed of his ice at one of Kanye's parties.
Suge Knight: Click to view!
Suge -- who recently filed for bankruptcy -- blames Kanye for allowing someone to smuggle a gun past security at West's pre-MTV VMA party at The Shore Club in Miami back in 2005, where an unknown person managed to shoot Suge in his upper right leg, shattering a bone.

According to the lawsuit filed on September 12 in US Bankruptcy Court in L.A., Suge claims he didn't just lose blood -- he also lost a 15-carat, $135,000 diamond stud earring inside the club during the incident -- and that too is Kanye's fault.

Now Suge, who claims he was so hurt that he needed to take a private jet back from Miami, is suing for all his bullet wound-related expenses AND "for damages for the loss of use and enjoyment of the earring." But check this -- even though Suge is bankrupt, he's worked out a deal with the Court that will allow him to keep a percentage of any dough he collects from the suit.

We shot a call over to Kanye's people, but haven't heard back.

Some people are just not educated enough or designed to handle money. This guy would be one of them. Squander away all your money foolishly, lavishly, because you think you're somebody now? Ha, easy come easy go I guess.

Hope the fat-bastard loses everything! He was behind Tupacs death and probably Biggie-Smalls as well. He is a thug, Kanye, better watch his back.

So this dumbass goes out wearing a $135,000 earring and LOSES it! Smart people put the real diamond in the safe and wear a copy when they're out and about. Serves him right, but I wouldn't put it past him if he was LYING about the whole thing. Don't give him a nickel, Kanye!!

They all belong together.They are all a bunch of goons.Kanye West,Suge Knight, Puff Daddy Diddy,and the whole bunch. They all deserve this and more.A lot of drug dealers and pimps.The killings and the family death is even to soft for them.They need to be send to an island and given guns and let them kill each other and the last one left should then be executed.That is the only way our society will be safe from these garbage.
