Claiming that his reputation has been damaged, Young Thug's former manager Manny Halley is suing the rapper's finance team for defamation. Halley accuses Young Thug's current business managers of scapegoating him to cover their own ineptitude.

TMZ reports Halley, who has repped many stars including Keyshia Cole and Nicki Minaj, is suing Davis Weise & Associates for $50 million. Apparently, last December, Weise's company sent several emails claiming Halley had spent more than $200,000 in unauthorized charges. It reportedly ruined his rep when urban blogs caught wind of the info.

According to Halley, Weise & Associates mishandled Thugger's finances. He said it got so bad the artist's cell phone service and home electricity were shut off at one point. When he learned of their mistake, the former manager said he tried to have them fired but they got to him first by sending the incriminating emails.


Halley explained the missing $200K paid for Jeffery's private jets during his concert tour.
