Lil Wayne and Drake

We Are NOT Paying

A $400,000 Judgment!

5/29/2012 12:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0528_lilwayne_drakeLil Wayne and Drake say there is NO WAY IN HELL they're gonna fork over $400,000 to a company that sued them for allegedly bailing on a club appearance ... because they claim they were never told about the gig.

The rappers have joined together to fight a default judgment entered against them.  The judge ordered the duo to pay $432,337.50 to Cahuenga, Inc. The company sued, alleging L.W. and Drake promised to perform at a 2011 event but were no shows.

The rappers now claim in legal docs ... they were never told about the appearance, never signed ANY contracts and were never even served with papers to show up in court.

Drake and Lil Wayne allege that IEG used a third party to book them -- Melanzh Enterprises -- which they claim had no authority to book them.

The two want the court to cancel the $400k plus judgment ... STAT.

From this pic it looks like Drake needs to add more fiber to his diet?

Seems like IEG should be suing Melanzh Enterprises, since they are the ones who didn't provide the promised artists.


It sounds odd that two seperate performers didn't fulfil their obligation and didn't respond to the court either. That leads me to beleive them when they say they didn't know about it.


Who knows...the contracts should prove everything either way.

The little black on the left with the tattoos and the piercings is digusting... and the guy on the right looks like he is constipated and trying to squeeze one out.

-

I don't know who these people are, but if they let the lawsuit default, then it is their problem now. Why didn't they fight it in court instead of allowing it to go into default?

-

The lawsuit may or may not be bunk. I have no idea, but waiting until something goes into default, then coming in afterwards to fight it - wastes tax payer money...the courts money... and everyone's time.

-

No sympathy from me - if they were getting a shake down.. They should had their lawyers fight it.

I'm going to particularly withhold judgement on this one. I said particularly. I'M THINKING, that there were attempts to address this before resorting to the courts and if all is as they claim the folks suing them would be idiots. BUT THEN that they would want to book either of these guys would challenge their intellect TO ME. BUT, IF they were not served notice [which should be easily verified], then no, they shouldn't have to pay. Time will tell... or it will all just fade away.

You can't help but wonder what's going to happen to us if people say they aren't going to pay a court ordered judgment. People will start thinking there's no point paying because nothing will be done about it anyway.

That should work go with the I don't know defence it's not like the company that sued them has paperwork proving they were served. I bet the judge says Pay up Bitc-h"s

You guys keep posting pictures of man named Drake but when you listen to whatever Drake is, it is quite obvious the sound is coming from a computer. Please explain
