"Suge" Knight's California mansion to be sold for $6.2 million

Marion "Suge" Knight's seven-bedroom, 9 1/2-bath home has been placed on the market for $6.2 million (EUR4.6 million).

The Mediterranean-style mansion was built in 2001 and is located on a 6.79-acre (2.75-hectare) lot in the hills above the Pacific Ocean. It has access to two beaches and is being sold with an additional 2.11 acres (0.85 hectares) of land.

The gated property, which includes a pool and tennis courts, was listed earlier this month. An Internet listing notes that the home is being sold "as is," and its sale is subject to approval by the bankruptcy court.

Knight sought bankruptcy protection for himself and his record company, Death Row Records, in April 2006. He claimed debts of more than $100 million in each filing.

At the time, Knight estimated personal assets of zero to $50,000.

Calls to Knight attorneys Laurence Strick and Daniel J. McCarthy were not immediately returned Friday.

In the 1990s, Death Row was home to recording artists such as Snoop Dogg and Tupac Shakur.
