Aftermath Records head Dr. Dre‘s camp has reportedly denied rumors this week of Marion “Suge” Knight‘s fatal hit-and-run accident being linked to a truce meeting.
According to reports, there is no truth to the beef-ending meeting gossip.
Dr. Dre is calling BS on Suge Knight for suggesting the good Doc asked Suge to come to the set to make peace with him. Sources connected with Dre tell us … 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.

Sgt. Diane Hecht of the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s information office said Knight was arrested at about 3 a.m. and is being held on $2 million bail.
