Lil Wayne recently caught a case unrelated to his ongoing legal war with Birdman and Cash Money. According to TMZ, Weezy has been slapped with a lawsuit against security guard who has accused him committing a violent hate crime.
In the suit, the security guard said that Wayne allegedly punched him in the face in 2016 because he was white. The California man was apparently securing the door at Hyde nightclub in Los Angeles when Tunechi and his entourage showed up to attend a BET Music Awards after-party.
When the security guard stopped him from entering, the Young Money leader got belligerent and assaulted him. In the documents, the man claims he felt physically threatened by Wayne. He also claims that Weezy allegedly threw a glass filled with alcohol in his face and yelled, “F— you white boy!” — which he claims makes it a hate crime.
Lil Wayne, his record label and the club are mentioned in the lawsuit. The security guard is seeking $25,000 in civil damages for the hate crime.
Reps for Lil Wayne says the lawsuit is frivolous and deny that the rapper assaulted the security guard.
