6. Andrew Knight, also known as (Andrew Payan)

Andrew Knight is one of Suge Knight’s children, also known as Andrew Payan. He uses the last name Payan because he was raised by his stepfather, Ed Payan, who went to prison for armed robbery.

Andrew, who is gay, was once accused of theft when American actress, singer, and songwriter “Lindsay Lohan” said he was the one who stole watches and sunglasses valued at $100k from their friend Sam Magid. Luckily for Andrew, he wasn’t seen as the culprit but rather Lindsay Lohan.

Legend Knight is the last known child born to Suge Knight. Legend’s mother is American producer Toi-Lin Kelly, who served a 3-year jail term when she aided Suge Knight, who was in prison when she was strictly advised by the presiding judge on Suge’s case not to.

Legend was born in 2013, and he is 14 years old. The last known son of Suge was trending sometime back in 2016 because of an incident that happened in court. Legend, at the time, was much younger six years old) and had not set eyes on his mother for a long time.

So, during a court hearing, Legend got to his father again but wasn’t aware of his dad’s current situation, and full of joy, he ran to meet his father, who was sitting behind the well of the court. However, the judge was not pleased and asked that he be sent out of the court after he requested his age from his mother Toi-Lin Kelly, who was also present at the hearing.
