Known as a generous rapper, if it was up to Lil Wayne, he’d likely spend all of his time giving money away to charity and playing shows with friends — but unfortunately he has a lot of money tied up in lawsuits at the moment. Sadly, Lil Wayne may also be sued by his own attorneys.
In other words, while Lil Wayne is making music, giving to charity, and planning epic shows with other entertainers — the courts need Lil Wayne to start paying up on settled lawsuits.
The one place that Lil Wayne seems to be doing the best near the end of October is with his business venture in Tidal — and he is using the company to give back.
According to Arts Beat from the New York Times, Jay Z, Beyonce, and Lil Wayne all turned out to perform at the Tidal charity event — and raised $1.5 million. The October 20 event with Lil Wayne at the Barclays Center specifically financed a civil rights charity close to Tidal’s heart called New World Foundation.
Despite Lil Wayne’s generosity — his lawyers seem less forgiving. As previously reported by the Inquisitr, Lil Wayne is involved with 10 lawsuits — some leaning toward his favor.
Regardless, now there is a chance that Lil Wayne will lose a legal battle in court — and this will be the second time he’s lost on the same case. Complex writes on October 19 that Lil Wayne owes his lawyers some fees — and they are suing him for $80,000 for costs related to getting sued for not paying his private jet rentals on time.
Adding to his legal woes, on October 16, the Miami Herald pointed out that Lil Wayne’s assets could not be seized by the same private jet company his lawyers are suing him over called Signature Group, LLC.
Gossip Extra reported on October 22 that the judge in the private jet case told them exclusively that Lil Wayne’s assets are safe — for now. They stated that the courts could change their mind about the seizure of $2 million in assets if he continues to not pay the settlement the jet rental company was awarded in court.
In addition, Lil Wayne has a long-standing beef with a former tour bus driver that was never settled. In April, claims that Lil Wayne was abusive to his tour bus driver in Buffalo, New York, were confirmed by Lil Wayne himself.
Months later, Syracuse writes on October 23 that the case between Lil Wayne and Mark Jones has finally been settled. According to some sources, the charges for “unspecified damages for false imprisonment, assault and emotional distress” was settled recently for about $75,000 by Lil Wayne — after several months delay in sending the actual check.
Although Lil Wayne seems to be embroiled in drama for most of 2015 — there is one bright spot at the end of the year. It is alleged that Lil Wayne has been invited to play an upcoming concert with Diddy and Busta Rhymes, according to Hot New Hip Hop.
All Access from WQHT Hot 97 NYC reports about the holiday Lil Wayne/Diddy music event on October 23. Details include that the event will take place in Newark, New Jersey, on December 5 at the Prudential Center.
The name of the event will be Hot for the Holidays and will include Lil Wayne, Busta Rhymes, Puff Daddy, French Montana, Mary J. Blige, and more. Tickets for the Lil Wayne event on December 5 go on sale on October 26.
But is this performance with Lil Wayne and Puff Daddy a sign of something more? Billboard alleges that Lil Wayne is a part of Diddy’s “private prayer circle” of celebrities. On October 16, insiders allege the following about Lil Wayne and Puff Daddy’s relationship as of late.
“[Puff Daddy] led an all-star prayer circle that included his son Christian Combs, Lil’ Kim, Lil Wayne, French Montana and Busta Rhymes before the artists took part in a performance by Puff Daddy & The Family in Miami on the first night of the 2015 Revolt Music Conference.”
