Suge Knight’s Girlfriend
Suge Knight’s girlfriend and business partner are involved in some serious legal drama. Reportedly, his girlfriend Toilin Kelly and partner Mark Blankenship have been indicted for alleging selling video of a hit-and-run fatality to TMZ for $55,000.
This week, Toilin pleaded not guilty to counts of conspiracy to obstruct justice, conspiracy to violate a court order, and conspiracy to commit grand theft. Meanwhile, Mark Blankenship is awaiting arraignment on the same charges.
According to reports, the pair spent nearly a month brokering a deal with TMZ for the sale of the surveillance video. The footage showed Knight running over two men in the parking lot of Tam’s Burgers in Compton, CA. As previously reported, one of the men, Terry Carter, died of his injuries. Knight is currently in jail and awaiting trial for murder in connection with the incident.
Prosecutors allege that the video was being held as evidence in the murder case, and was subject to a protective order forbidding its release. A grand jury indicted the pair in July, and the indictment was unsealed this week upon Toilin’s not guilty plea.
If convicted, the defendants face up to three years in prison.
