Lil Wayne

Sued Over Sleepiness

7/9/2009 2:52 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0709_lilwayne_ex-1It certainly would have been cheaper to buy an alarm clock. Lil Wayne is being sued for nearly half-a-million bucks for sleeping when he should have been performing.

Red City Entertainment claims it fronted $432,000 for a Wayne concert appearance in the Bahamas. On September 27, 2008, there were plenty of lights and cameras... but no action, because Wayne was passed out in his hotel room. When he didn't show for the performance, cops went to his hotel and found him unconscious.

In the lawsuit filed today, Red City claims it gave Wayne a $210,000 advance. The balance is for his hotel expenses and various costs involved in throwing the failed concert.

Calls to Lil Wayne's rep were not returned.

He's like whatever I got the cash, I'm just gonna crunch up some pills put it in my drank and rap about how much money I make for not showing up to places. These people make me sick, why doesn't anyone wake up and say STFU about their money, we're in a recession we don't need to heaar that crap, can they gives us some of theirs? NO! SO stfu about how much you can make it rain with when you're a effin no show. It's hard to rap at concerts anyway when you use AUTO TUNE for everything.
What a douche.

The concert-goers missed a lot. Next time, if they'd just bang on a garbage can lid, they'd get the same effect for free.
