Hip-hop mogul Marion ‘Suge’ Knight has lost his long running legal battle with Kanye West over a shooting at a Florida nightclub in 2005.
Knight sued the Stronger hitmaker over allegations he was shot in the leg during a robbery at a party hosted by the star in Miami Beach five years ago.

He claimed West was responsible for the incident because he should have increased security at the venue to stop a gun being smuggled in, and demanded more than $1 million in damages.

A judge in Miami threw out the lawsuit on Thursday after concluding there was not enough evidence to prove the shooting could have been prevented.
