The ongoing lawsuit may force Weezy to pay damages for breach of contract after the release of the critically acclaimed documentary.
It's been almost two and a half years since QD3 Entertainment released The Carter documentary based on Lil Wayne's work. Although the rapper agreed to participate in the film, he later sued the production company when it refused to allow him the authority to approve the film's content. Weezy filed a $50 million lawsuit to halt the documentary's distribution.
However, according The Hollywood Reporter, production company, Digerati Holdings, filed a countersuit against Wayne, alleging that he breached contract by refusing to appear in interviews, denying to provide video content, making deals with other production companies, and demanding that MTV Networks and Viacom have no hand in distributing the doc.
If Digerati proves that Lil Wayne breached the contract, he may be ordered to pay damages. Both parties must go back to court to present evidence and arguments regarding the possible breaches of contract.
