Hip-hop mogul Marion 'Suge' Knight is wanted by police after allegedly skipping a court hearing last week.

The former Death Row Records boss was due to appear in court in Los Angeles in relation to a charge of driving on a suspended license, according to court documents obtained by TMZ.com.

The website reports Knight never showed up for the hearing and is now facing arrest.

It is the latest in a long line of legal problems the star has faced in recent months - Knight was arrested in May on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon, and late last month he was given a restraining order after an associate alleged Knight had threatened him.
