Bernie Madoff gets dragged into everything these days!
Lil Wayne launched a lawsuit Wednesday against a movie production company that filmed a documentary about the self-described "one of the kings of hip hop." Ok, so his lawyers are kissing butt.
The suit charges that the company promised to give Lil (we prefer to call him that, rather than Wayne) approval over the final cut. But they didn't! And instead they, gasp, presented an attempted scandalous "documentary" at Sundance. And to get into all of this, the Lil's lawyers decided to lead their complaint with Bernie Madoff, drawing some bizarre connection that we now live in the age of people conning other people.
Probably the most interesting thing is that one of the defendants is Quincy Jones' son, Quincy Delight Jones III. Does that mean that there are two other guys with the middle name Delight? The papers also state he uses the pseudonym QD3. Seriously? At least Prince was once a symbol.
The lawsuit goes on to state blah, blah, blah, lots of boring stuff. The only things we found interesting: Lil's real name is Dwayne Michael Carter Jr. Not so catchy, huh? And his company is "Young Money Entertainment LLC."
And yes, Dwayne Michael Carter Jr.'s lawyers want to look good to their client. At one point they call him "considered the best rapper of his generation and one of the best artists in hip-hop period."
Yup. They actually wrote the word period.
