Akon’s producer Detail was robbed at gunpoint at his Van Nuys, Calif. home Wednesday morning (March 25), with suspects making off with more than $300,000 worth of possessions.
According to TMZ.com, the producer believes former hip-hop mogul Suge Knight was behind the incident.
The site reports that site that at around 3:00 a.m. this morning, five men broke into his home with guns in tow, and told him they were there to collect a debt he owed to Knight, and proceeded to collect.
Detail was asleep when the men broke in, and when they made their way into his room, they stole around $170,000 worth of jewelry from his room, and then demanded a key to his safe or they’d “kill all four people in the house.”
He didn’t give up the key, so the men took the safe altogether.
In addition to jewelry and the safe, the thieves made off with expensive audio equipment, and took the key to a Mercedes.
Detail and others were not hurt during the robbery.
TMZ says the feud stems from an altercation between Knight and a man from Akon’s camp during a private party held in Scottsdale, Arizona during NBA All-Star Weekend, which ended with Suge Knight getting badly beaten at the hands of Robert Carnes Jr. of Akon’s Konvict Muzik camp.
Knight suffered several fractured bones in the face, and was hospitalized.
