Lil Wayne has lost his lawsuit against Quincy Jones III and the other producers of the 2009 documentary The Carter, but what’s even more bummer is the fact that Lil Wayne also lost the countersuit, which will result in a hefty pay day for Wayne’s opponents. Making next time you shouldn’t be so off-putting in the depositions, especially if that’s the only time the jury gets to hear you speak on the matter. Come on Wayne, just follow Drake, he seems like a nice young man. Via TMZ:
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.
To celebrate, let’s watch the documentary that started it all.
