Lil Wayne Settles One Lawsuite!

Lil Wayne was recently sued by Jack Sutton, a Louisiana diamond dealer who says Lil Weezy bought a diamond ring and a gold and diamond necklace in 2006, but has only made one payment since. Sutton sued Lil Wayne claiming Weezy only paid $24,000 of the $170,000 he owed for the two items.

A Miami-Dad Circuit Judge ruled and approved the order that will make Lil Wayne responsible for paying the bill stating “which sum shall bear interest at the rate of 11 percent a year.” Lil Wayne is expected to return the ring instead of paying the bill. Wayne’s lawyer Ron Sweeny said “We reached a settlement,” finishing, “Everybody’s happy.”

Lil’ Wayne’s Daughter is Not Dead

There are unconfirmed rumors that Lil’ Wayne’s daughter died in a tragic car accident last evening. The following note, allegedly from Lil’ Wayne’s sister, was posted on Yahoo’s Answers:

“Thanx to all of u who are genuinely concerned about the recent report of Reginae being killed in a car accident. It means a lot to our family to know that so many of u care (calls have been coming in to our family all day & are continuing to do so). I am pleased to inform u that this report is FALSE!! It is merely a rumor started by someone who obviously is miserable in their own skin that they would even have the notion to attack a child. Rest assured Reginae is tucked away in her bed @ this very moment trying to get past the hurt this ugliness has caused her and our family. It’s ironic however that although the evil, hellbound [EXPLETIVE] that started this hate mail did something like this to Reginae…. she still said a special prayer for them 2nite. This is Nae’s Aunt & all of the responses that I wanted give all went out the window when I heard that prayer. So to all of our extended family & friends & fans…please join us in saying a special prayer for the lost soul who simply had nothing better to do….be sure to include .. LORD please forgive them…for they know not what they do”. We love u all,we thank u…and we hope u will spread the good news…Nae-Nae is okay…smile God loves U!!”
