Los Angeles Promoter Suing Lil Wayne Over Assault With A Skateboard

A promoter is suing Lil Wayne after one of his bodyguards reportedly assaulted him with a skateboard.

It looks like Lil Wayne is back in legal hot water over an alleged assault with a skateboard.

In a recent report from LA Weekly, it appears that Los Angeles promoter Alfredo Marino is preparing to sue Weezy over a reported assault. Marino claims that in May 2012, a member of the YMCMB rapper's entourage hit him over the head with a skateboard.

Marino recalls that he saw Wayne and his entourage skating in Los Angeles, and approached them with the hopes of getting his picture taken with the rapper. After repeated requests, Marino says that Wayne became angry and ordered one of his bodyguards to attack him.

"I was star-struck," Marino told LA Weekly. "I was like 'Cool, cool, cool!'...[his bodyguards] started tripping and saying, 'I told you that Lil Wayne does not want to be bothered.' I told them I have taken pictures of tons of people and I just want to show my friends that I saw Lil Wayne. They started calling me a 'groupie' and I said, 'I ain't no groupie'...Lil Wayne had enough, I guess, and he rolled up on a skateboard and he said, 'Alright motherfucker, you want to take a picture like a groupie? Like a little bitch? Like a little girl? Is that what you want?'"

He continued, "I couldn't believe he was telling me this. I actually started laughing. I didn't take it seriously. I told him I just wanted a picture and that I'm a promoter. But he said, 'I don't want to hear that shit. You're nothing but a groupie bitch to me.'"

It was following this exchange that Marino says one of Wayne's entourage picked up a skateboard and hit him over the head with it, knocking him unconscious. He was later treated at a nearby hospital for a concussion and vertigo.

"Honestly, I'm not trying to be a millionaire for getting smacked over the head," Marino said. "I want him to realize that there are fans out there, tons of fans out there and this is the way he's going to treat them?...I'm a big Hip Hop fan, and I loved Lil Wayne's music. Now I hate his music. But I'm kind of like in the zone that everywhere I go I see Lil Wayne. I see him on TV. I hear him every damn day on the radio. I can't get away from this guy. It disgusts me."

In an earlier report from DX, Wayne was quoted as having told Marino that, "Don’t you know all it takes is a word and these motherfuckers are going to fuck you up?"

This isn't the first time the rapper's entourage has been accused of assault. Last year, Weezy's bodyguards were accused of attacking a photographer in Miami while the rapper was skating.

    1. Never approach a celebrity whose bodyguards are probably the size of offensive linemen. 2. If your first requests denied, walk away. 3. If you are going to sue with hopes of winning the suit, do it soon after it happens, not 9 months after the fact. 4. Don't say that you are a fan of hip hop so love Lil Wayne. Lil Wayne is far from hip hop.

      1. approach the celeb with big body guards, they may be dumb and attack you and you can get a payday out of it 3.it doesnt matter if it was a week or 9 months, assault is assault. 5. there is nothing wrong with wanting to take a picture of a celeb. he shouldnt get assaulted because of that. now he is gonna get a nice pay day.

    You have been trained to be recessive and agressive so when someone steps up to you your devilish side shows up. You can't deal with your problems in a civilized way so you it a person with a board because it's in your nature to be a monkey. You have limited to no knowledge of self so that leads to your monkey mentality. You niggers/devils are all the same insignificant scum of the earth.

      "AmeriKKKa: Land Of The Weak, Home Of The Slave" ^ you admit being weak History shows you had help and take all the credit. The hair all over your body resembles an ape. The root word of your race is an area of mountains that was an incubation site for the plague that almost wiped you out. You are actually colored, we can see red, black, pink, blue, green on you. You need more people.

    Wayne is a hardened criminal. Certified OG, oozing with street cred. This guy was out the dealing before the age of ten. Even after he got a deal he stayed on the corner to make extra money. Wayne has earned all of his teardrops. I can't tell you the specifics, cause I don't wanna snitch, but the bodies are there. He single-handedly bodied Dez Braynt's career in that fight outside of LIV. He's done bids, been to the island and all that. i suggest you don't fuck with lil Wayne.

    Wayne needs to be taken down a peg. Muhammad Ali would sit there for hours signing autographs for fans. Niggas in the street gots to get together.

    Basically, Wayne is being an asshole to his fans. Just by him being a asshole lost him a fan.

    at least those skateboards he keeps carrying around everywhere are getting put to good use since this nigga cant even do an ollie or kickflip after 2 years on a board
