Lil Wayne and his former manager / lawyer hit the headlines again.
Ron Sweeney, who has acted as manager and lawyer for the Louisiana artist since 2005, pushes the founder of Young Money to fork out money for his percentage of his settlement from Birdman and Cash Money Records.
However, based on recent reports, Weezy is and declined to sit for a deposition regarding the settlement with his former father figure.
According to a court record, on August 24, 2021, the artist (real name Dwayne Michael Carter Jr.) was scheduled to answer some pertinent questions about money.
Yet, according to Sweeney, he did not show up for a deposition and will not discuss the payment. In addition, the executive alleges that the top of the “Lollipop” charts asked his team not to provide an additional date for the filing to be made in the future.
Sweeney, who filed the document, says the Weezy team is stagnating until a judge can dismiss a $ 20 million lawsuit, which they deem frivolous, on the whole.
As reported by AllHipHop.com, Sweeney wants his money.
He claims he was not paid for helping Wayne advance his career and become the tycoon he is. He says he made many trade deals before they took action and ended their trade relationship.
In the lawsuit, he says Wayne “failed and refused to pay the plaintiffs his promise of 10% of the recovery of the lawsuits, 10% of the sale of the main recordings belonging to Lil Wayne’s record company, then 17% in general commissions owed to applicants as part of the day-to-day management activities of the applicant. ”
Before you vote on anyone’s side, note that Wayne is also suing Sweeney. He says he didn’t do all of this for him and that he cheated him for years.
He introduced himself as his manager, even though he was doing the job of a lawyer. He was paid as a lawyer, which is not in dispute, and does not deserve any commission pay or placement fees.
The courts did not weigh in on the testimony, not on Wayne’s request.
