Lil Wayne sued by ex-lawyer for $375k

Lil' Wayne is reportedly being sued by his former lawyer for $375,000 (£251,000).

According to XXL, the 'Lollipop' hitmaker's ex-attorney Michael Kramer - who represented the US rapper in his attempts to be released from his Cash Money contract - filed a lawsuit against Wayne in the Manhattan federal court on Monday (21.12.15).

In the lawsuit, Kramer says that Wayne failed to pay $375,239 in legal fees after agreeing to fork out an initial $20,000 in July 2013 and then monthly bills.

The attorney claims he "made numerous attempts to resolve the dispute amicably. These attempts were ultimately unsuccessful."

The lawyer's company is alleged to have billed the 33-year-old rapper from November 2014 to October 2015 before eventually dropping him in September because of the reported debt.

Earlier this year, Wayne - whose real name is Dwayne Michael Carter - was sued by another law firm, Garbett, Allen and Roza for $80,000 in unpaid legal fees.

What's more, the rapper's former bus driver Mark Jones filed a lawsuit against him earlier this year.

He alleged that Wayne threatened to pistol whip him, "whip his ass" and then kill him on a trip to Buffalo, New York.
