According to TMZ, Lil Wayne and Drake are being sued for $432,337.50 by Imperial Entertainment Group for not turning up to a club appearance back in 2011. Weezy and Drizzy are both refusing to pay the money, which the judge ordered them to do so, because they say they were never told about the event and never signed any official contracts about it.
They also say that Imperial Entertainment Group used a third party, Melanzh Enterprises, to book them but that party had no authority to do so. The two rappers are currently asking the court to dismiss the judgement. You can read more info about the lawsuit after the jump below.
Also after the jump, I have added another photo of Tune watching the Boston Celtics vs. Miami Heat game court-side at the American Airlines Arena in Florida from last night (May 28th).
The rappers have joined together to fight a default judgment entered against them. The judge ordered the duo to pay $432,337.50 to Imperial Entertainment Group. The company sued, alleging Lil Wayne and Drake promised to perform at a 2011 event but were no shows.
The rappers now claim in legal docs … they were never told about the appearance, never signed ANY contracts and were never even served with papers to show up in court.
Drake and Lil Wayne allege that IEG used a third party to book them — Melanzh Enterprises — which they claim had no authority to book them.
The two want the court to cancel the $400k plus judgement.
