Lil Wayne is currently in the middle of several music projects, as well as a long list of lawsuits, but now it is alleged that he will be in court again for a new mishap.
According to Variety, Lil Wayne had a lawsuit filed against him by a bouncer that says Lil Wayne punched him outside of a Hollywood nightclub in 2016. On top of punching the bouncer, it is also alleged that Lil Wayne used racism as part of the attack.
The incident allegedly occurred at the Hollywood Hyde Sunset Nightclub on June 27, 2016, and the lawsuit filed against Lil Wayne on June 9, 2017, states that the person assaulted was named Andrew Nunemacher.
Andrew Nunemacher was working at the time as a bouncer outside the door of the nightclub when Lil Wayne and his friends started getting out of control. For some reason, someone Lil Wayne knew was angry, and it caused a scuffle.
Andrew Nunemacher was working as the bouncer, so his job was to keep the front door secure during the scuffle between Lil Wayne’s entourage. During that incident, Andrew Nunemacher says Lil Wayne punched him and knocked him out so hard that he fell to the ground.
After Lil Wayne knocked him over, Andrew Nunemacher alleges in his lawsuit that Lil Wayne also threw a cup of liquid at his face that smelled like alcohol while yelling the statement “F— you, white boy!”
Andrew Nunemacher is also filing the lawsuit against Lil Wayne for “assault, battery, and intentional infliction of emotional distress.”
In addition to Lil Wayne, Andrew Nunemacher is suing the club owners through their corporate entity, SBE Entertainment. Andrew Nunemacher is also suing Universal Music Group and Young Money Records.
Since the event was promoted by the BET Music Awards after-parties by the group Made Hollywood Inc., they are also a part of the Lil Wayne lawsuit.
In this case, time will tell if Lil Wayne and the associated accused parties will settle out of court or take the matter to trial. It is not uncommon for Lil Wayne to have lawsuits, and his fans are often more interested in learning about when they can see his next show.
Lil Wayne fans have been particularly threatened over the past few years because Weezy keeps talking about retiring. For this reason, one of the main lawsuits that Lil Wayne fans might be interested in pertains to his label, Cash Money Records, and his ongoing lawsuit drama with Birdman.
The good news is that both Birdman and Lil Wayne agree that the lawsuit should not stop the release of the long-anticipated Tha Carter V.
Since Lil Wayne keeps threatening to retire, he is also getting a lot of attention when he plays a concert. For example, Lil Wayne recently announced that he will host the third annual Lil Weezyana Fest in New Orleans on August 25.
Currently, special guests have not been announced, but fans are mainly interested in seeing if Lil Wayne will release something he’s been working on, like his project called T-Wayne, new music or releases from Funeral, or drops from Velvet.
Another Lil Wayne fan theory is that he will use Weezyana Fest 3 for a totally new project that does not seem to be close to being finished, such as Dedication 6.
As previously reported by the Inquisitr, there has also been the ongoing threat that Lil Wayne will retire. Since his 2008 interview with Katie Couric, many Lil Wayne fans have been counting down the clock until his 35th birthday on September 27, 2017.
In 2013, Lil Wayne also said that there was still a chance he could retire at age 35. When interviews get personal, Lil Wayne always reveals he is a family man — and one of the main appeals to him about retiring was being there for his kids more often.
Lil Wayne is also a businessman with a growing retail empire, and retirement could help him focus on his investments. For example, in addition to being an owner in Tidal, Lil Wayne is also expanding his Trukfit clothing company.
