Birdman Forced to Show Judge His Financial Records
Could this be the beginning of the end of Lil Wayne and Birdman's ongoing dispute? Wayne has, for over a year now, contested that he is owed millions from Cash Money, filing a $51 million lawsuit against his former label and mentor in January of 2015 for unpaid advances and joint copyright holdings over all Young Money Entertainment records. With Weezy claiming that Birdman spent most of their $100 million Young Money advance, a judge has now ordered the Cash Money mogul to show his financial records to the court, TMZ is reporting.
There is one problem however, with word that Cash Money hasn't been the best at keeping a tight book, as Birdman's lawyers refer to the record keeping by saying, "It is what it is." In response, a judge has given Birdman 30 days to pull together the requisite paperwork, or find someone who can.
Through much of this ordeal, Birdman has maintained that he plans to mend his relationship with Wayne, saying just last month, "I’ma heal that. He’s still my son. I don’t like how a lot of this shit went down, definitely don’t like a lot of shit he had said, but at the end of the day, I would never in my life say nothing negative about him." Wayne meanwhile has kept a fairly consistent attitude, saying "Fuck Cash Money" on song and stage and telling Skip Bayless that he'll never work with Birdman again.
