Dr. Dre says Suge Knight never called to the set to make peace with him.
Sources connected with Dr. Dre told TMZ that he scoffed when he was told Suge is claiming Terry Carter — the man he struck and killed — was bringing Suge to the set because Dre wanted to end their beef.
TMZ broke the story, less than an hour before the hit and run, Suge Knight went to another set location but was thrown out by Dre’s security. Sources connected with Suge say he got a call from Carter who said he had just spoken with Dre and the Beats mogul said he wanted Suge to return so he could make peace.
Our Dre sources say it never happened, and note it’s pretty convenient the only other person who has first-hand knowledge is dead because Suge killed him.
As for why Dre and his people didn’t want Suge around, we’re told it’s because they view Suge as having a big fat target on his back. They say the shooting last Summer where Suge was hit six times is proof enough. Dre didn’t want him and his people in the line of fire.
