Late last year, Lil Wayne boasted that he was involved in every aspect of his career, including personally filming parts of The Carter, an upcoming documentary about his life thus far. Things got a bit fishy, however, when we reported the film’s debut at Sundance revealed Wayne’s cough syrup addiction was more dire than many had thought. It turns out, this wasn’t the cut of the film he would have authorized and, naturally, his lawyers are on the case.
Radar Online reports Lil Wayne is suing the production company behind the film because they allegedly didn’t give him the final cut, as per their agreement. Quincy Delight Jones III, son of music legend Quincy Jones, was one of the partners named in the lawsuit. Jones, aka QD3, is a producer who scored Will Smith’s sitcom The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air and Menace II Society.
In a strange twist, the lawsuit cites convicted Ponzi schemer Bernie Madoff as an example of a similar incident of fraud.
