Knight‘s attorney, Marc Brumer, has stated that Knight had $200,000 in medical bills from the gunshot wound which shattered his femur. He is seeking total damages of well over $1 million.

We dated for almost 3 yrs and now that we have broke up, he wants nothing to do with me. He won’t speak to me and he tries to avoid me when he sees me. What does it mean?
You should back off. He’s not ready to, or doesn’t want to deal with you being a part of his life again. He does not have to be your friend and obviously doesn’t want to be. You should just leave him alone.

I have been with my fiancé for two years and we are planning to get married next year. He has a 4-year-old child from a previous girlfriend who is very jealous of our relationship and us. His mother is close to his ex and as a result, she doesn’t like me. I think his ex may be spreading rumors about me. Is there anything I can do to fix, or create a relationship with my fiancé’s mom?
You have to remember that you’re marrying the son, not the mom. Your focus should be on your relationship with him. If you treat him right and he’s happy, eventually mom will see that and she’ll soften up. Don’t push too hard trying to get this woman to like you. Be polite when speaking to her and just be yourself.
