Lil Wayne: I Was Screwed In Court Because of My Seizures

You can’t change the past. This is what Lil Wayne is coming to terms with this morning following the loss he—and his bank account—are suffering after a judge awarded in favor of Quincy Jones III to the tune of $2.2 million.

If you’re still hungover from an election night party, we’ll refresh your memory. Weezy first took issue with the “scandalous portrayal,” the Jones-directed documentary about the singer’s life, for using unlicensed music from his “Tha Carter III” album.

Not to be outdone, Jones then filed a countersuit claiming this motion and subsequent trashtalking from the rapper significantly hurt the profits of the film, which the court agreed with and ordered a payout from Wayne to Jones in order to make up for it.

Now Wayne is saying he didn’t have a chance to properly make his case and defend it given he was unable to show up in court due to a “medical emergency situation”—those two “seizure-like episodes” he fell under last month while flying on his private jet cross-continental.

According to TMZ, Wayne says he’s sure his absence probably “pissed off” the jury; however, let’s be real, that probably started back when his unprofessional and “hilarious” deposition video hit the internet. TMZ also reports that even in the midst of his exhaustion and dehydration-induced seizures that kept him from testifying, he still found a way to drag himself to a Miami basketball game to sit courtside for the Heat—and objection! Not helping your case there, Wayne.

It’s doubtful that Lil Wayne will try to fight the decision though. It’s JUST $2 million, which he can pull that out of any drugstore ATM the next time he buys gum considering he has a net worth of $95 million.
