Master P Sued

No Money, Mo' Problems

A bunch of people who worked for Master P on his 2003 movie "Uncle P" claim the former rap mogul wasn't bout it, bout it when it came to pay day -- and now they want their cash ... more than $240k!!

According to court documents obtained by TMZ, several members of the crew sued P back in 2005 and WON -- but P never forked over the dough.

Now, the class has taken their case to the U.S. Bankruptcy Court in L.A. -- hoping they can finally squeeze some cash out of the man who was once reported to be worth $600 million.

The class wants the court to push P into bankruptcy so that an independent trustee will be appointed to oversee P's assets ... and maybe then, they would be able to collect.

I agree with The Jurnalist, I will no longer suport this site until there is some type of screening on these stupid *ss holes, that write racist stuff.
First off, it didnt say he was broke, it said that he didnt want to pay the crew for that wack *ss actin they did.
If you dont know, Master P is a legend. He came from a poor part of New Orleans, started selling his own cd's out of his trunk, started a record lable and now he rich!!LEGAL!
Master P and his son had shows on Nickelodeon and he stopped rapping and became a positive role model. His kids in college. PEOPLE SHOULD STOP TALKING BOUT WHAT THEY DONT KNOW.

If Donald Trump who claims to be worth billions can file for bankruptcy why can't somebody whose networth is less do the same?

Either he really is broke or he's just got all that money stashed away somewhere. I don't know, but I wouldnt put either passed him. What I do know is that for someone who is/was considered one of the wealthiest black men of our time something is definitely not right when he's got 6 kids with his ex wife (4 of which who are still minors) & is only being ordered to pay $200 in child support for all of them! & unless Romeo is on scholarship at UCLA I'm sure he has to pay for that too. SMH, even if he never pays off his debts to anybody else the one thing that he should wanna do is make sure his kids are taken care of reguardless! This must be so embarrassing for the young ones especially if they're going normal schools with other kids. Before all of this is over something's gonna come to the light, so I hope for his sake he's been honest.

hes not broke, matter of fact he just bought a entire tv channel, what is broke is one of his companies which makes sense, he alone still has his millions, his company has its own bank account, if a company goes broke that doesnt mean the owner went broke. so whatever film company he was doing that under has no money so the people want him to claim bankrupcy on it so the money that comes from that can pay them. master p is smart as hell hell never be broke. and hes not fat its just the way hes sitting
