The Southern California estate of Death Row Records founder Marion “Suge” Knight has been placed on the market to help pay a long list of creditors he owes after filing bankruptcy.
According to The Smoking Gun (TSG), the property is located in the trendy Malibu, California area, sits on 8.9 acres of property, has seven-bedrooms, nine-and-a-half bathrooms and is being listed for $6.2 million by a local broker.
Although the property’s description notes that the estate’s sale has to be approved by a bankruptcy court, it does not identify Knight as the property’s owner.
The purchase of the property “does not include any personal property,” said the listing, according to TSG, but the buyer will get Knight’s red felt pool table.
Knight has been going through financial troubles for some time now. In 2005, a judge ordered the fallen music mogul to pay $107 million to Lydia Harris, a woman who claimed she fronted Knight the seed money to start his Death Row empire. But in early 2006, Knight filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy to halt Harris’ attempts at getting paid, and to maintain control Death Row Records after a judge said he would appoint a receiver to take control of the label.
Despite his efforts, in July 2006, Knight lost control of the label when a federal judge ordered a bankruptcy trustee to takeover Death Row Records.
