*Good grief, it’s come to this. Marion “Suge” Knight, the former Death Row Records boss man, who previously filed for bankruptcy in 2006 and has been faced with legal troubles over the past few years, saw his possessions auctioned off on the A&E show “Storage Wars,” where participants in a niche industry buy storage lockers that have gone into default and resell them to the highest bidder.
Custom-made clothing, a flat screen TV, and a large photo of Knight and Tupac Shakur, which went for $100; were among Suge’s things that sold on the show, which premiered this past week. Knight had been seven months late on his payment for the storage space in Simi Valley, Calif.
The auction could help Knight, who’s in deep doo-doo with the IRS. The government claims the used-to-be-mogul owes them a whopping $6.58 million in unpaid taxes! And seeing as to how he supposedly only makes $1200 a month, it’s a mystery how he’s supposed to pay it back. By the way, his monthly income was revealed after his ex went after him for unpaid child support.
Meanwhile, the problems don’t stop for Suge. He was busted by the L.A. County Sheriff’s Department late Friday evening (Dec. 3) after a $40,000 bench warrant was issued for his failure to show up in an L.A. court.
Knight was subsequently booked at a West Hollywood police station shortly around 1:15AM. He was then given a citation and ordered to sign a promise to appear before being released.
