Suge Knight’s Threats To ‘Straight Outta Compton’ Director Allegedly Revealed In Court Records
Court records from the February hearing have been revealed for the first time and the transcripts claim that Suge Knight made violent threats to Straight Outta Compton director F. Gary Gray. Suge, who is affiliated with the Mob Piru set of the Bloods gang, was angry at Gray for the way he was being depicted in the movie and that he was not being compensated for his story being used in the film. The Los Angeles Times reported on the alleged threats, which evidently intimidated Gray enough to not remember any of the incidents when questioned in court.
“I can’t say I remember being threatened by him specifically,” Gray said, according to court records. However, detectives claim they do know about the menacing threats that Suge made to Gray. Apparently, Gray received phone calls while he was on the set of Straight Outta Compton, but he hung up on the caller. That phone call was followed by several voicemails and text messages.
“I will see u in person … u have kids just like me so let’s play hardball,” Knight allegedly wrote to Gray. “I’m from Bomton,” Knight wrote, using Bloods slang. “I’m a Blood criminal street gang member from the city of Compton… Time has arrived Faith in God keep ppl safe. The Devil’s Money can’t save No 1.” The message ended with a pair of expletives and a racial slur, according to court records.
