Rapper Lil Wayne has been dragged into a bizarre new legal spat after one of his minders allegedly attacked a man with a skateboard.

Alfredo Marino claims he was trying to take a photograph of the hip-hop star after spotting him hanging out in Los Angeles in May (12).

The burly sidekick objected and allegedly smashed a skateboard on the snapper's head. Marino claims he suffered a severe injury and now he is suing Lil Wayne and the rapper's record label, insisting they are all to blame, according to Tmz.com.
