Suge Knight's plea to leave jail to go to his mother's funeral has been denied.
This year hasn't been the best for Suge Knight for several reasons. While his legal issues have been weighing on him, the former CEO of Death Row has also dealt with issues with his health and his personal life. Earlier today, it was reported that Suge's mother passed away last night after dealing with some severe health issues over the past month. Unfortunately, Suge won't be able to pay his final respects to his mother at the funeral.
Suge Knight won't be able to get ahold of a "get out of jail free" card, according to TMZ. Suge asked the court to allow him to leave prison in order to attend his mother's funeral but the request was shot down. Due to the fact that Suge Knight is a homicide suspect, he's ineligible to get any sort of pass to be able to attend events, even if it's the funeral of his own mother. However, the fight isn't exactly over. If he wanted to, Suge could file a petition with the court to be able to travel for his mother's funeral but the chances of that pulling through are slim.
Suge Knight's mother, Maxine Chatman, died last night in Paramount, CA. According to reports, her health hasn't been stable for the past month after suffering a stroke. She died at 77 years old.
