(Gigiontat) Death Row Records founder Suge Knight has been hospitalized in Los Angeles to be treated for “life-threatening” blood clots. Knight, 50, was taken to the Los Angeles County-USC Medical Center from a jail in LA, where he is currently awaiting trial for murder.
The news of Suge’s hospitalization was confirmed by his fiancee, Toi-Lin Kelly. “I am worried because Suge is supposed to receive the proper medical care everyone in custody is entitled to. Doctors have said Suge’s blood clots are life threatening.”
Jail officials, meanwhile, have denied any mistreatment.
“I am worried because Suge is supposed to receive the proper medical care everyone in custody is entitled to,” Kelly told the Daily News Wednesday. “Doctors have said Suge’s blood clots are life threatening.”
She said Knight’s doctors want him to receive daily blood thinning medication, and she fears it’s not being administered “regularly or on time.”
“It has been two years of in and out of the hospital, dealing with the same blood clots because the hospital doesn’t want to deal with the pressure of the Sheriff’s (jail officials) while he is seeking care,” she said.
“So no, I am not confident they care about his well-being, if at all. I can tell you we are well documenting the actions of the jail and USC Medical so we can stay on top of this,” she said.
