Lil Wayne Loses Private Jet Lawsuit And Is Ordered To Pay $1,800,000

Lil Wayne and Birdman

Young Money rapper, Lil Wayne, real name Dwayne Carter, was sued this year by an aviation company in Miami, for ordering the $1,000,000 customization of a Gulfstream private jet, accepting it under leasing terms and failing to pay the bill. The private jet, which costs $55,000 per month to run, was used by Lil Wayne, but the company did not receive payment in accordance with the terms of the leasing deal. A verdict has been reached in the case and Lil Wayne was hit with a $1,800,000 court judgment. 

Lil Wayne's money troubles are piling up. He is attempting to sell his $10,000,000 Miami mansion that he should not have bought, as he could not afford it (he has been delinquent in not paying the $220,000 property tax bill for 2014). Lil Wayne is also facing many lawsuits for copyright infringement, defrauding songwriters and producers out of royalties he is contractually obligated to pay and non-payment of other bills. This behavior is typical of Hollywood, where they all want to live the high life that many of them are not entitled to, so they rob others to fund their lifestyles and run up bills, then don't want to pay them.
