Lil Wayne, who is still recovering from 2 seizures while aboard his private jet, has been hit with a pretty large bill to the tune of $2million dollars! The lawsuit stems from Weezy’s countersuit against Quincy Jones III for his ‘Carter’ documentary.
Get Informed with the details, about Wayne’s video disposition that could landed the nail in the coffin, below.
TMZ reports that a jury ordered Wayne to pay Jones $2.2 million based on the countersuit that argued Weezy blocked the release of his film, “The Carter,” therefore infringing on its profits.
The lawsuit made unintentional headlines last month when video of the Young Money boss’ apathetic and dismissive behavior toward his lawyer during a videotaped deposition leaked online.
The tapes, released by TMZ last month, inspired thousands of posts on social media referencing Wayne’s “hilarious” deposition. The judge overseeing the lawsuit at the time was not at all entertained by the videos, however, and admonished the Young Money CEO for his display of “unreasonable conduct in the deposition” and “irresponsible behavior.”
The rapper, born Dwayne Michael Carter Jr., originally sued Jones over what he called the director’s “scandalous portrayal” of him in “The Carter,” a 2009 documentary about the multiplatinum artist’s life. Wayne also sued over the alleged unauthorized use of his music for the film.
