Lil Wayne is now gonna have to cough up some money to pay back a couple of people. The newly named cover star for XXL is being sued by the Signature Group for not paying back the rental fees for his airplanes back when he was hoping to ”jet setting around the globe.”
According to the Courthouse News Service, the Signature Group sued Wayne and Young Money on Thursday (July31st) in Miami-Dade County Court. Here’s a excerpt from the 14-page lawsuit.
As with many such artists, Mr. Carter appears to enjoy the finer things in life: expensive cars, a mansion in La Gorce Country Club on Miami Beach, and private aircraft travel for himself, his agents, and members of his entourage, to worldwide destinations of his choice. Naturally, the enjoyment of such luxuries is not free, and Mr. Carter and his putative Florida limited liability, defendant Young Money, have failed to live up to their obligations and now owe plaintiff, Signature Group, over one million dollars in fees and charges relating to Mr. Carter’s jet-setting around the globe on private aircraft leased to him by plaintiff. The nature of this dispute is straightforward and there are dozens of written communication from Mr. Carter’s agents, not only attesting to the existence of this debt, but also promising payment if plaintiff foregoes taking action against defendants. Simply put, Mr. Carter can choose to use the proceeds that he earns to live the life of a hip-hop star – but he has to pay his bills just like the rest of us.
The Signature Group is seeking money owed and damages for breach of contract and unjust enrichment.
