Lil Wayne's former bodyguard, Christian Carlos, is fighting to keep his lawsuit against the rapper from being tossed out over a clerical mixup.

As a result, Medlock said she would be filing to officially dismiss the case within the next 45 days.

The trial date of July 8, 2024, will be vacated.

As RadarOnline.com first reported, last year, Medlock sued the Lollipop rapper after working for him for 2 years.

In her lawsuit, Medlock claimed she was let go after she asked for time off to take care of her child. She said she had taken a trip to Las Vegas with the rapper and his team for Memorial Day weekend.

Medlock said she prepared meals for Wayne and his guests during the holiday. During the trip, she found out her 10-year-old child injured his head and was taken to the hospital.

Medlock said she finished the job despite the medical emergency. The chef said she traveled with Wayne to the airport when it was time to leave. They hopped on a private jet but the pilot wouldn’t take off due to Wayne allegedly smoking.

Insiders reportedly said the rapper denied the allegations, and didn't even own a gun.

The chef said she decided to book her own flight home to make it to her kid. Medlock claimed she informed Wayne’s assistant that she was leaving.

Days later, she said she got a call from the assistant who told her Wayne said “This isn’t going to work.” She was informed that he would no longer utilize her as his chef.

Medlock’s lawsuit demanded $500k in damages. The rapper denied all allegations of wrongdoing. He argued his actions were, “legitimate, good faith, justified, non-discriminatory, and or non-retaliatory business reasons.”

Before the settlement, the parties had been going back and forth over Medlock appearing for a deposition.

Wayne's ex-bodyguard sued the rapper for allegedly threatening him with a semiautomatic gun and punching him in the head.

Wayne accused Medlock of failing to appear for a scheduled depo despite being on notice for months.

Wayne’s lawyer argued, “There is no undue burden and there is no harassment involved in requiring the [Medlock] herself, who is demanding a half million dollars from [Wayne], to sit for a day of deposition. [Medlock] is the most important witness for [Wayne] to depose. [Medlock] can travel 35 miles roundtrip and make arrangements to appear in person for one day of deposition. This is certainly reasonable given her claims against Wayne.”

The judge had yet to rule on the matter before the parties informed him of the settlement.
