Lil' Wayne sued by ex-manager
Lil' Wayne is being sued by a manager he fired in December over a hotel room she booked for him. The Miami Herald reported that Melissa Philipian, president of White Tides Entertainment of Miami Beach, claims that Lil' Wayne is refusing to pay her at least $500,000 in commissions since firing her. According to the lawsuit filed in U.S. District Court in Miami on Wednesday, Lil' Wayne told Philipian that he was terminating her employment because he was upset about the quality of a hotel room that she reserved for him. However, she claims that the three-year contract he signed only allows for termination after specific contract breaches -- and hotel room satisfaction is not one of them. In addition to the $500,000 already owed, Philipian is looking to get paid for the remainder of her contract. "We're probably looking at damages in excess of $1 million," her lawyer, Richard Wolfe, told the Herald. Lil' Wayne's latest release, Tha Carter, Vol. 2, debuted at No. 2 on the Billboard 200 albums chart in December and has since went platinum. Latest news...
