Troubled hip-hop mogul Marion 'Suge' Knight has been ordered to stay away from a Los Angeles-based associate amid allegations he threatened to have the man killed.

The complainant, whose identity has not been released, filed papers in Los Angeles County Superior Court on Monday asking a judge to grant him a restraining order to keep Knight at a distance.

In the legal documents, he claims Knight "had 8 guys come to my house and told them to get me or kill me."

The alleged incident is said to have taken place on Friday, just a day after Knight was released on bail following a confrontation at a Los Angeles gas station.

The Death Row Records founder was apprehended after cops were tipped off about a man reportedly pointing a firearm at another car from his Cadillac Escalade.

It is unknown if the two cases are linked, but the scared associate claims Knight warned him "he was out now and going to take my life", reports

Knight must appear in court on June 8 to respond to the allegations.
