If he had his own way, Lil Wayne would probably much rather concentrate on his music than be embroiled in another legal matter. On Thursday, an aircraft rental business launched a suit against the rapper, whose real name is Dwayne Carter, and his label Young Money Entertainment, accusing both parties of failing to pay over $1 million in fees related to Weezy's “jet-setting around the globe,” Courthouse News reported. "As with many such artists, Mr. Carter appears to enjoy the finer things in life: expensive cars, a mansion in La Gorce Country Club on Miami Beach, and private aircraft travel for himself, his agents, and members of his entourage, to worldwide destinations of his choice,” said the lawsuit filed by The Signature Group. “Naturally, the enjoyment of such luxuries is not free, and Mr. Carter and his putative Florida limited liability, defendant Young Money, have failed to live up to their obligations....Simply put, Mr. Carter can choose to use the proceeds that he earns to live the life of a hip-hop star - but he has to pay his bills just like the rest of us." While Young Money are yet to respond, between his upcoming tour with Drake and the launch of his sports management business with soccer star Cristiano Ronaldo, maybe Weezy just misplaced the bill?
