Suge Knight left an L.A. hospital early Wednesday ... just 3 days after taking SIX gunshots to the gut at a pre-VMA party -- and he's healing amazingly well.
Suge's rep tells TMZ ... the music mogul left Cedars-Sinai around 6 AM, and doctors say he won't need any rehab -- just a few follow up visits.
As we previously reported ... Suge got blasted Saturday night at 1Oak nightclub at a Chris Brown hosted event -- but he's refusing to cooperate with the police investigation.
We're told Suge is already back on a regular diet, and if he keeps his bandages clean ... he'll be good to go.
Only Suge makes getting shot look like it's no big deal.
Avoids Serious Injury
in Terrible Crash

Conrad Hilton, the younger brother of Paris Hilton, was involved in a major car crash over the weekend ... but TMZ has learned he emerged without any major injuries.
According to the California Highway Patrol, Hilton was driving in Palm Springs Saturday afternoon when he clipped the back of another car while trying to change lanes. CHP says his car then hit the rear of a tractor trailer before coming to a rest on the side of the road.
Police say paramedics had to use the ol' jaws of life to free Hilton from his car. As bad as that sounds, ours sources say Hilton suffered a fracture in his hand, a few cuts and bruises, but no major injuries.
According to the CHP, drugs and alcohol were not a factor, but Hilton was observed to be speeding before the crash. Police say before the crash, another driver called 911 to report Hilton's reckless driving and an officer tried to pull Hilton over, but lost sight of him.
This isn't Hilton's first major crash. Back in 2011, he smashed his car into a parked car while speeding down a residential street in Brentwood.
I Ain't No Snitch
Not Talking to Cops
8/26/2014 10:12 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Suge Knight is NOT talking to cops about the 6 bullets that penetrated his body ... refusing to drop a dime on anyone.
Sources close to Suge tell us ... the wounded mogul is fully conscious, although on several occasions police were turned away on false info -- that he was supposedly sedated.
But during one visit cops were actually allowed to see Suge. A source tells us when they asked about the shooting ... Suge acted disoriented, asking, "I was shot?"
We're also told witness cooperation has been minimal. If no one steps forward it will be tough to identify who pulled the trigger ... even though the gunman is on surveillance video at 1Oak.
The Biggest OJ Attack Since '94
8/26/2014 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
A big German guy guzzled some OJ at McDonald's and claims he got supersized -- with a 4" spear that fired into his throat.
Klaus Geier claims in his lawsuit he went to a San Fernando Valley McDonald's in April, 2012, and ordered a chicken sandwich, fries and a large OJ at the drive thru.
Klaus reached in his bag, noticed there wasn't a straw so he took the plastic top off as he drove away and started guzzling it.
Klaus claims he felt something lodge in his throat -- a 4" valve which he believes was part of the OJ dispenser. As he reached in his mouth to remove it, Klaus says the serrated spear on the tip deployed and fired into his esophagus.
Attorney Anthony Liberatore, who reps Klaus, says his client grabbed the valve and spear and ripped them out of his throat, causing severe injury.
Klaus claims he is left with 2 bad options -- either highly risky surgery which could cause him to permanently lose his voice, or live with the damage which causes raspiness and a constant mucus buildup.
We tried contacting McDonald's but were unsuccessful.

Video Attack Isn't Enough to Prosecute
Snitches get Stitches
8/25/2014 12:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Suge Knight is way better at dodging charges than bullets … because even though he attacked someone at a pot shop, and it's caught on video -- he's not being prosecuted because of "insufficient evidence."
We broke the story -- which was pretty awesome -- Suge got denied at the Medstar Collective in L.A. back in February because he didn't have a medical marijuana card. He went ballistic and slugged a guy in the face -- which you clearly see on the video.
But prosecutors tell TMZ ... they're not filing charges because they believe video alone won't cut it. Who knows ... maybe someone was stupid enough to throw the first punch that wasn't caught on tape.
But we're told the reality is this ... prosecutors need witnesses and if you know anything about Suge, you'll understand that no one is talking.
As we first reported … Suge was shot multiple times early Sunday on the Sunset Strip, and after lifesaving surgery he's recovering in a hospital.
Still … no one wants to get Vanilla Iced.
Moments After Bullets Tore Through His Body
8/24/2014 1:01 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
TMZ has obtained video showing Suge Knight shortly after he was hit by 6 bullets ... and he's surrounded by cops with their guns drawn.
In the video ... Suge can be seen on his knees, crouched behind a white Bentley parked outside 1Oak nightclub ... and appears to be in distress -- although the gunshot wounds are not obvious.
Witnesses tell us he sought protection behind the car as other people fled the club ... where Chris Brown had been hosting a VMA party.
Sources connected to Knight's family tell us ... Suge took 6 bullets -- 1 in the arm and 5 in the stomach. Doctors recovered 3 of the bullets ... we're told the other 3 went straight through his body.
VMA Party Shooting
Hear the Gunshots [VIDEO]
8/24/2014 9:53 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
This video puts you right in the middle of SHOTS FIRED at the VMA pre-party early Sunday morning.
There is clearly a lot of commotion before the shots ring out. We're told a fight had broken out and it's clear from the video people were going at it.
It sounds like there are 4 quick shots ... and then a 5th. But we're told by Suge Knight's family he was shot 6 times. So the number of shots is unclear.
BTW ... you can't see it in the video, but eyewitnesses tell us during the shooting Chris stood there with arms outstretched, trying to look invincible.
Three people were wounded. Law enforcement sources tell us ... they're focusing on gang rivalry as a possible motive for the shooting.
2 NBA STARS AT NIGHTCLUB
Around Time of Shooting
8/24/2014 7:39 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Two NBA superstars were at 1Oak nightclub right around the time Suge Knight was shot in a Hollywood nightclub early Sunday morning -- and TMZ Sports has the video.
Our photogs were rollin' as Denver Nuggets center JaVale McGee and L.A. Clippers star Glen "Big Baby" Davis walked up to the nightclub around 11:45 PM Saturday night ... just like any other night.
Big Baby got inside ... but the line proved to be too much for McGee and he decided to leave. Might have been the best decision he made all night.
Because 90 minutes later, gunshots rang out -- and as TMZ first reported, Suge Knight was shot multiple times.
Unclear if Davis was still in the club at the time of the shooting -- but we're guessing he was, since 1Oak was the place to be Saturday night ... with huge stars like Chris Brown, Tyson Beckford and more hanging inside the Sunset Strip club.
We're reaching out to try and get as much info as we can.
Stay tuned ...
SHOT Multiple Times
After VMA Party turns Violent

5:45 AM PT -- Suge is out of surgery … according to family sources. We're told Suge was shot 6 times. He's currently in ICU, but is expected to recover.
Shots rang out at 1OAK nightclub in West Hollywood at around 1:30 AM Sunday ... and Suge Knight was shot twice and taken to the hospital by ambulance where he was rushed into surgery ... eyewitnesses and Suge's family tell TMZ.
A source close to Suge tells us ... he was shot in the stomach and arm and apparently in other places as well.
Tyson Beckford, Robert Ri'chard and Apple de Ap all tell TMZ ... they were inside the pre-VMA party hosted by Chris Brown when they heard 4 shots ring out inside the club.
Suge walked out on his own power ... a cop spotted him and walked the rap mogul to the police car where Suge sat. Suge was then put in an ambulance and taken to a local hospital.
We do not know the seriousness of Suge's injuries. Multiple sources now tell us Suge was one of 3 people who were shot. At least 1 is in critical condition. Sheriff's deputies had guns drawn as clubgoers exited with their hands in the air right after the shooting.
The night started with tension. An hour-and-a-half before the shots, Game came to the club and he and his buddies got into an altercation with security guards ... there was a full-on fight. Game tried to get in, was denied and left, but his buddies stayed behind. We do not know if they were involved in the altercation.
MTV wanted to make it clear ... it wasn't their party ... it's was Chris Brown's.
I'm So Fancy ...
I Crashed HARD Off the Stage [VIDEO]
8/23/2014 7:26 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Iggy Azalea took a massive tumble off the stage she was performing on Friday night ... and the video is intense.
Azalea was rapping her hit song "Fancy" during a pre-VMA party at the Avalon when she lost sight of the stage and went down like the Titanic.
It's been rough going for pre-VMA stuff. A dancer was bit Friday by an Anaconda during a Nicki Minaj rehearsal.
As for Iggy ... security helped the 24-year old back onto the stage ... and of course, she played the whole thing off like a champ.
You already know.
