Lil Wayne

LOSES Lawsuit

Over Documentary

Lil Wayne
just lost his case against Quincy Jones III over the documentary about the rapper, and even worse for him, he lost the countersuit QIII filed against him.

The jury ordered Lil Wayne to pay Quincy $2,195,000. Quincy's countersuit alleged Lil Wayne wrongfully jock blocked the release of the film, screwing up its profit potential.

We broke the story ... Lil Wayne never showed up in court for his trial. The day he was supposed to testify he was a no-show because he had suffered several seizure-like episodes and was prohibited from flying. As a result, his lawyer was left to show the jury Wayne's deposition, in which he refuses to answer questions and mocks the proceeding.

When celebrities can't separate their business related priorities from their public personas, they're bound to "LOSE A GREAT DEAL OF MONEY". Lil' Wayne lost because he "HE REFUSED TO RESPECT THE PROCESS THAT "HE" INITIATED"!!! He agreed to allow someone to do***ent his lifestyle without maintaining "creative control" over the final product in which he didn't like. WHO'S FAULT IS IT? Partying with someone doesn't mean doing business with them is a good idea. Lil' Wayne should have "HANDLED HIS BUSINESS UPFRONT" rather than sabotaging the project on the back end. Perhaps next time, he'll be much smarter.

This is another assbucket i highly beleive he's doing product, needs rehab badly and needs to really grow up and for goodness sakes take the little off of his name he is after all a baby daddy! He looks like a coloring book with all of those tattooes, and down right ridiculous standing at two feet two holding a pretend gun to his temple in darn near every pic, he's paid, but he too has a shelf life, get a stylist, take a bath, and put on some decent clothes and stop stealing from the goodwill bin its for others less fortunate than himself! He came to one show no shirt americana boxers, one long and one short dingy tube socks and it looked like he ripped the bears off of some child slippers and glued them on to his sneaks he can prolong his career by doing rehab, growing up,and preparing and getting his team who are running amuck together!
