Documentary-maker Nick Broomfield was left terrified when fearsome rap mogul Marion 'Suge' Knight stalked him in a hotel for 30 minutes after he grilled the hip-hop boss over the deaths of Tupac Shakur and Notorious B.I.G.

The British director interviewed the Death Row Records founder for his 2002 film Biggie and Tupac, in which he suggested the star had some involvement in the murder of both rappers.

Broomfield received no further contact from Knight at the time but reveals that years later, a creepy confrontation with Knight at a hotel in California left him unnerved.

He tells Britain's The Independent Magazine, "Years later, I was in the Polo Lounge of the Beverly Hills Hotel speaking to Gore Vidal, and Suge Knight came in. He just sort of stood right next to me, saying nothing. But he's very big, you know.

"Gore Vidal's bodyguard got up and said, 'Can we help you, sir?' Suge Knight shuffled off but stayed in the lounge for another half an hour staring at me. I thought, 'S**t, I'm going to have to get a room here for the next two weeks before I can sneak out'."

Asked if he was intimidated, Broomfield replies, "Well I mean, yes. I was bemused but also I was very uncomfortable. He was stood right behind me and I couldn't see what was going on. But I could see on everyone else's faces they weren't too happy either."

Knight hit headlines last month (Jan15) when he was arrested and later charged with murder following a hit-and-run incident in California.
