Speaking of them the news site reports Lil’ Wayne recently lost a lawsuit battle with private jet company, Signature Group . According to reports, will have to cough up $2 milli and pay the jet company for the time he leased one of their planes.
Though Weezy F Baby, claims he never signed a contract, he evidently had some sort of three-year deal with Signature. According to the suit, when the rapper missed payments for the first two years, the jet company filed suit. Signature Group claims as of July 2014, the Young Money mogul owed $1 million.
A judge not only ruled in Signatures favor, but because the lawsuit was more than a year old, added on to what he originally owed them. Now Wayne has to pay $1.8 million, plus $200,000 in attorney fees.
Finally according to Variety, another biopic is coming to TV. The Lifetime Network is filming the Toni Braxton story. Unlike Aaliyah: The Princess of R&B and Whitney, this go around the network has permission to do the film. The upcoming Lifetime original movie will be based on and named after the singer's 2014 memoir, Un-Break My Heart. Production begins later this year.
Mrs. Braxton will executive produce the film, and appear in it as well. The movie will cover all her ups and downs from living a chronic illness, financial troubles, divorce to managing her son’s autism and much more. No word on a premiere date just yet, but I'll keep you posted.
