Lil Wayne has filed a lawsuit against the production company behind The Carter, a documentary about him, according to Radar Online.
The flick recently debuted at this year’s Sundance Film Festival and Weezy claims he was never given approval over the final cut as promised before the premiere. He also alleges that the film portrays him in a negative light.
QDIII, who is listed as one of the five co-producers of the film, was specifically targeted in the suit, along with his company QDIII Entertainment and it’s affiliate Digeratti Holdings, LLC.
The son of legendary musician Quincy Jones, QDIII has had his hand in a long list of hip-hop related docs including the Beef DVD series, Crips and Bloods: Made In America and Tupac Shakur: Thug Angel. As of press time emails to him have not been answered.
Wayne, who filed the legal papers on March 23 in Los Angels Supreme Court, is suing for breach of contract, breach of covenant of good faith and fair dealing, unfair business practices, fraud, invasion of privacy and injunctive relief. It is unclear how much money the rapper is seeking. – Elan Mancini
