So it seems that No Worries rapper Lil Wayne has once again found himself in legal drama and all kinds of worries because of a fan. According to L.A. County Superior Court attorney Chris Chrisvin representing Alfred Marino who filed a lawsuit on February 8 against the YMCMB rapper and his record label Young Money Records. Mr. Mariano is requesting compensation for unspecified damages due to severe head injuries from an attack caused by a person in Lil Wayne’s entourage.
Mariano claims the incident occurred back in May 2012 in Los Angeles, California. In his lawsuit, it states that he spotted Lil Tunechi in the street, approached him, and then attempted to take a picture with him. That is when one of Lil Wayne’s employees grabbed a skateboard and then bashed Mariano’s head in, causing serious injury. Furthermore, Mariano goes on to say, he developed vertigo for three weeks following the incident and had to see a neurologist from June until October.
It is not known whether Mariano filed a police report or if the Los Angeles Police department formally charged the attacker with any crime. But Mariano believes Lil Wayne is responsible and should be held liable for all damages since he failed to intervene and instead encouraged the attacker.
The Young Money rapper has not yet been served with the lawsuit, but will be in Los Angeles this weekend for the Grammys. He has nominated for two awards, Best Rap Song with The Motto and Best Rap Performance with fellow Young Money artist Drake with HYFR (Hell Ya F**kin’ Right). No response or formal statement has been give by the rapper’s publicist.
