NORRISTOWN, Pa. (AP) — Former state Attorney General Kathleen Kane, once a rising star in state politics, left a courtroom in handcuffs on Monday after getting a 10- to 23-month sentence for a retaliation scheme a judge linked to her all-consuming ego.
Jailed former gangsta rap mogul Marion "Suge" Knight has filed a lawsuit against Dr. Dre accusing the hip-hop star turned Apple executive of hiring hitmen to kill him. In a lawsuit made public Monday that was packed with loaded claims, Knight alleged that Dr. Dre agreed to pay him 30 percent of his earnings for life -- including his share of Apple's $3 billion purchase in 2014 of Dr. Dre's Beats line of headphones and other electronics. Knight also named in the lawsuit leading movie studio Universal, saying that it cooperated on the hit attempt as Dr. Dre and other members of gangsta rap pioneers N.W.A. spoke to Knight about the use of his likeness in "Straight Outta Compton," last year's box office-topping biopic on the group.
