Lil Wayne's financial woes continue.
Just when Lil Wayne seemed to be righting his often capsized ship, a story like this one comes out. According to the NY Daily News, Lil Wane owes one of his lawyers just shy of $300,000. That isn’t an insurmountable sum for Lil Wayne, but its enough for the Michael B. Kramer to file a lawsuit against his former client for failing to pay up.
The suit, filed in New York City, charges that Lil Wayne failed to finish paying after a December 2015 agreement that stated Wayne would pay the money in $20,000 per month installments. Kramer contends that Lil Wayne paid in December and January, but has failed to send any money the lawyers’ way since then. The legal fees stem from when Kramer represented Lil Wayne in his $51 million lawsuit against Birdman.
It’s unclear if the lawyer is seeking any damages beyond what he’s owed. Lil Wayne has not issued a statement as of this posting. He also owes $900,000 to the IRS.
