Lil Wayne sued by former manager for more than $20M over past earnings

Lil Wayne has been sued by his former manager Ronald Sweeney for more than $20 million over past earnings.

According to court documents obtained by TMZ, Lil Wayne hired Sweeney in 2005 to help him negotiate his contract with Birdman’s Cash Money over their years-long legal dispute, which was ultimately settled back in 2018 with Sweeney’s help.

The lawyer, however, says he was not fully compensated in the Cash Money deal for his work.
The rapper asked him to fire his then-boss, Cortez Bryant, according to Sweeney, paving 
the way for him to take over the position of manager at the rapper’s request. 
The suit says Wayne increased his commission fees from 10 percent to 17 percent, but 
“conspired to drive wedge between the rapper and Sweeney,” Bryant and rapper/music executive Mack Maine. 
The attorney claims the actions paid off, as he was shot in September 2018 by Lil Wayne.
This lawsuit comes about two years after Lil Wayne sued Sweeney for $20 million, alleging that he was wrongly paid 10 percent by his ex-attorney/manager for every deal he helped close, which is
 far higher than the percent industry standard.
