Lil Wayne Claims Birdman Spent Almost All Of Their $100M Advance From Universal Music Group
Lil Wayne didn’t get a big enough piece of the $100 million pie, that he says Birdman received from Universal Music Group distribution deal.
According to a fresh round of legal documents reported by TMZ, Wayne says Birdman confessed to spending around $70 million on royalties, marketing and recording costs. The Cash Money Records founder reportedly supplied Tunechi’s lawyer with more than 20,000 pages of document to prove that he spent the money on business expenses.
The two have been going at it in court for well over a year now, and it looked like Wayne was inching towards retirement to fully wash his hands of the legal battle.
He addressed the issue on ESPN earlier this week. “This is business,” Wayne told Skip Bayless. “I have a family, I have kids, I have a mother, we got bills. Once the business is right, then everything is right.”
