Lil Wayne Sues Ex-Lawyer for $20 Million

Animated GIF

Lil Wayne is suing his former lawyer for $20 million.

According to TMZ reports, Lil Wayne is suing Ronald Sweeney — who repped him from 2005 through Sept. 2018 — because he says the attorney was charging some hefty fees. In the docs, obtained by TMZ, Wayne says Sweeney charged him 10 percent for every deal he helped close. The problem is … Wayne claims Sweeney failed to inform him the industry standard is a mere 5 percent.

That up-charge cost Wayne a bundle — he says Sweeney made $20 million during his tenure.

According to the docs, Sweeney got pretty greedy … proposing he get an additional 10 percent of all profits from Wayne’s label, Young Money — but Wayne says that was swiftly shot down.

Still, he says Sweeney even brought in outside help. In the suit, he says Sweeney hired another law firm to aid in the litigation with Cash Money over the ‘Carter V’ deal.

Wayne says that firm got 23 percent of the Cash Money settlement and 15 percent of the Universal Music Group settlement. Those numbers clearly stick in Wayne’s craw because he says all that was on top of Sweeney’s inflated 10 percent.

Weezy’s suing his former legal flak for at least $20 mil.

The rapper appeared as a special guest during Monday night’s halftime show, which took place almost 50 miles north of Levi’s Stadium, the site of the title game. The show was played on the big screen inside the stadium.

Taking the stage, Lil Wayne opened with his hit song “Uproar,” before shedding his unwieldy outerwear and joining Imagine Dragons for a remixed version of their song “Believer.” But for the duration of the performance, the only thing many social media users could focus on was Lil Wayne’s odd choice of attire.

Lil Wayne Reportedly Praises Swizz Beatz And Reveals Jay-Z Helped Him Out With His Taxes

Image result for Lil Wayne

If you missed the previous story on Weezy’s tax problems click Here to read.

In a video posted from his recent concert in Chicago.

Weezy says…

“There’s people like Jay-Z…he helped me when I was really really really down. Really really really down. There’s people like Swizz Beatz, that’s going to send me every beat he makes and rap on every single one until I got my situation straight.”

“He don’t want me to talk about it, Jay don’t want me to talk about it… that man help me with my taxes. These are real friends everybody.”
Before closing his gig in Chicago, the rapper also shared what a great year he’s had.

“This year has been amazing and I’m so grateful for all the love Tha Carter V has gotten,” he added. “There’s no better way to wrap up 2018 than to spend it with the people who mean the most to me—my fans!”

Lil Wayne Enters ‘The Bumbu Room’ to Answer Fans’ Questions About Kobe Bryant, Nicki Minaj And More

Animated GIF

Weezy enters The Bumbu Room for the debut episode of the fresh series from the luxe liquor brand, premiering with Billboard Monday (Dec. 17). Weezy answers an array of fan-submitted questions ranging from his taste in women, to the heated Kobe versus Michael Jordan debate, and Nicki Minaj.

With Wayne often rapping about his eclectic sensual ways, fans had some questions regarding the mix of two Weezy favorites in smoking and women. “I have ashed my blunt on a booty while having sex,” the New Orleans native candidly admits. “My man, Hoody, he is a dog when it comes to a big booty. Let me mind you this is a fat guy. I’ve saw this guy eat a meal off [a butt], a good nice meal.”

When it comes to Nicki Minaj and Rihanna, the 36-year-old is always siding with the queen of Young Money. “Nicki,” he emphatically states. “We would go into the studio and make beautiful music, then we would go into somewhere else and make beautiful something else.”
