Rapper Lil Wayne Is Facing Mounting Financial Lawsuits After Lawyers Representing Him In A Legal Battle Over Unpaid Private Jet Fees Have Now Launched Their Own Case Against Him.
The Lollipop star was sued by bosses of Signature Group last year (14), amid claims he had not paid any bills during the first two years of his three-year deal with them.
Wayne insisted he never signed a contract with the group, but in September (15), he was ordered to pay a $1 million (£625,000) settlement. Wayne allegedly refused to pay the bill, and the figure reportedly ballooned to $1.8 million (£1.1 million), with an added $200,000 (£125,000) in legal fees.
As a result, police officers and civil processors in Miami Beach raided the rapper's home to seize his belongings on Wednesday (04Nov15).
In addition to his lawsuit with bosses of Signature Group, the 33 year old is now being accused of failing to pay his lawyers who represented him in the case. Their legal fees total $80,680 (GBP50,425), according to Bossip.com. Wayne reportedly paid a $12,000 (GBP7,500) retainer to attorneys at Garbett, Allen & Roza in Miami, but has not paid any other fees. They are seeking the fees plus interest.
