Law Firm Sued Lil Wayne For $81K In Legal Fees; Rapper Said He Owes Nothing
Lil Wayne has fired back against lawyers who claim he stiffed them out of nearly $81,000 in legal fees, saying they overcharged him and he’s already paid them enough money.
Miami law firm Garbett, Allen & Roza P.A. sued Wayne last October, claiming he never paid them for defending him when an airplane company sued him for not paying it back for using it’s private jets for three years.
The lawyers said Wayne orally agreed to their legal contract last year, and the attorneys mounted the father of four’s defense. Lil Wayne ultimately lost the case, and a judge ordered him to pay the jet company $2 million.
But the lawyers said Wayne, real name Dwayne Michael Carter Jr., never paid them either, and have asked the court to force him to pay them back, plus interest.
