Rapper Lil Wayne has sued his ex-lawyer N7.4 billion ($20 million), on account of the lawyer charging him with some hefty fees for over 13 years.
In the docs, obtained by TMZ, Wayne says Sweeney charged him 10% for every deal he helped close. However, Weezy claims Sweeney didn’t inform him that the industry standard is a mere 5%.
According to the docs, Sweeney got pretty greedy proposing he get an additional 10% off all profits from Wayne’s label, YoungMoney butt Wayne says that was swiftly shot down.
Wayne claimed that Sweeney even hired another law firm to help in the litigation between Wayne and Cash Money over Tha Carter V deal. Weezy said that the firm received 23% of the Cash Money settlement and an additional 15% of the settlement money from the Universal Music Group settlement. Weezy claimed that those numbers were on top of the Sweeney’s 10%
