Lil Wayne Sued by Former Manager
Cash Money Records MC Lil Wayne has been sued by his former manager for unpaid commissions. Melissa Philipian, who is the president of Miami-based White Tides Entertainment, alleges that the rapper has refused to pay her at least $500,000 for services rendered. The lawsuit alleges that Wayne fired Philipian in December 2005 after she booked him an unsatisfactory hotel room, and that in addition to unpaid commissions, he owes White Tides 15% of his earnings over the next two years according to a contract. “We’re probably looking at damages in excess of $1 million,” Philipian’s lawyer told the Miami Herald.
