Rapper Lupe Fiasco

Accused of Hiding Money ...

For a Drug Kingpin

9/3/2013 12:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF


Lupe Fiasco
is in cahoots with a convicted drug kingpin -- hiding millions of dollars from the drug lord's estranged wife to screw her in the divorce ... this according to a new lawsuit.

Fiasco is a big-time rapper ... who's being sued by the estranged wife of convicted drug kingpin Charles Patton, who's currently serving a 44-year prison sentence for running a heroin enterprise.

According to the suit, Patton's estranged wife believes Fiasco conspired with the drug kingpin to move more than NINE MILLION DOLLARS into various bank accounts in an effort to block her from making a play on the cash in their ongoing divorce.

It's pretty complicated stuff -- but Patton's wife believes she's uncovered the money trail ... and it went through Lupe. Now, she's suing to get what she claims is rightfully hers.

Lupe's lawyer tells TMZ ... Inita's allegations are baseless and will be proven false at trial. Adding, "There are no secret accounts and no illicit instructions."

The lawyer adds, "Inita Patton filed for a divorce and is making baseless allegations against Charles, and has unfortunately included Lupe who has no involvement in their marriage whatsoever. There are no secret accounts, no illicit instructions."

"1st &15th Productions, Inc., has and has always  from the inception, had an accountant and a business manager who properly handle funds and all allegations will be proven false at trial. Charles has filed a counter suit against Inita for absconding with funds given to Initia for real estate transactions that have never been purchased."

I don't know where they live, but in most states if you are convicted of selling drugs, they take all the money, cars, homes, bank accounts and all personal effects. also go after family and take their stuff if they cant show they paid for it with their own money. so if there is hidden money she wont get it. one man won lottery (5million) and the state took it, saying he bought ticket with drug money.

Yeah this lawsuit isn't going anywhere. "Inita" is fooling herself to believe the government is going to release 9 million dollars in Heroin profits to her accumulated by her estranged Drug Kingpen husband. Extorted or not by Lupe Fiasco. The government is keeping that money.

I never believed in love spells or magic until I met this spell caster once when i went to see my friend in Indian this year on a business summit. I meant a man who's name is Dr ATILA he is really powerful and could help cast spells to bring back one's gone, lost, misbehaving lover and magic money spell or spell for a good job or luck spell .I'm now happy & a living testimony cos the man i had wanted to marry left me 5 weeks before our wedding and my life was upside down cos our relationship has been on for 3years. I really loved him, but his mother was against us and he had no good paying job. So when i met this spell caster, i told him what happened and explained the situation of things to him. At first i was undecided,skeptical and doubtful, but i just gave it a try. And in 7 days when i returned to Canada, my boyfriend (now husband) called me by himself and came to me apologizing that everything had been settled with his mom and family and he got a new job interview so we should get married. I didn't believe it cos the spell caster only asked for my name and my boyfriends name and all i wanted him to do. Well we are happily married now and we are expecting our little kid, and my husband also got the new job and our lives became much better. His email is
