Suge Knight‘ problems with money and bills are continuing to add up.
As previously reported, Suge was set to be taken to court by one of the mothers of his children who allege that he owed her for back child support payments.
Now however several of Suge’s personal items have been sold at auction to pay for an outstanding storage bill.
The owner of Conejo Valley Moving & Storage Joe Furmidge held the auction Saturday in an effort to recoup the missing money.
Furmidge’s auction was widely successful making $4,500 dollars in 30 minutes off Suge’s property including furniture, clothing, appliances and gym equipment.
A large picture of Suge and Tupac was sold for $100.
This is not the first time Suge has seen many of his items sold at an auction.
In 2009 items from Death Row’s catalog including unreleased recordings and various award show trophies were sold to the highest bidder.
Some of Knight’s personal items including his underwear were sold as well.
In August he put his Los Angeles mansion up for sale after filing for bankruptcy.

Crooked I had refuted the notion that he is in any way signed to Death Row Records, an assertion made by the new CEO of the iconic label founded by Dr. Dre and Suge Knight.
A comment by Lara Lavi, CEO/President – Wideawake Deathrow LLC, seemed to suggest that Crooked I was still on the label.
“…Everybody on the roster, those deals expired in the nineties. The only two really are Crooked I and Danny Boy right now; they’re always really technically on the roster,” Lavi said in an interview published on Monday. “We’re negotiating with them right now to do a new contract signing because they both have current projects. Danny has an R&B album and a Gospel album and Crooked I has an amazing project with King Tech, supported by Sway.”
However, Crooked I denied any new relationship and stated that Lavi only mentioned Wideawake, not Death Row, in his dealings with her.
He did acknowledge the relationship between the two entities.
“I cut ties from Death Row Records in 2004 legally. All my contractual ties were cut. She’s [Laura Lavi] a nice lady,” Crooked I told AllHipHop.com. “As far as Death Row is concerned, that’s going backward in my career. No disrespect to her. She has the old music.”
Crooked I maintained that the endured an extensive and expensive legal process to get off of Death Row Records.
“I have no contract with Death Row. I went through 11 months of court [to get freed contractually],” he concluded.
Crooked I recently released an album with his group Slaughterhouse that has been met by critical acclaim from Hip-Hop fans.
