LEGAL UPDATES: Plaxico Burress, Flesh-N-Bone, Coolio, & Weezy
Apr 04 | by Natasha
Lots of legal drama popping off today:
Lil Wayne is suing some film makers who submitted a documentary about Wayne's life to the Sundance Film Festival this year. Here's what went down:
The Lollipop hitmaker, real name Dwayne Carter Jr., claims he gave a film crew working for Digerati Holdings and QD3 Entertainment exclusive access to his everyday life for a movie about the the star, titled The Carter. In exchange, movie bosses agreed to give Lil Wayne final say on the finished film. The rapper's manager viewed the footage in December and requested some content be removed from the documentary. He was shown the edited reel again in January, but still had objections to the movie and sent it back to the cutting room. But according to legal documents obtained by Radar Online, producers failed to adhere to the demands and presented what Carter's camp have called a "scandalous portrayal" of the MC at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year.Basically Weezy wasn't feeling how his own documentary made him look. So he's suing for unfair business practices, invasion of privacy, and breach of covenant of good faith. I wonder if he's ever considered that the documentary was some real ish about his own life and actions and he just didn't like what he saw. Hmmm....
Flesh-N-Bone of Bone Thugs N Harmony was arrested yesterday for gun possession. While in Santa Clarita, CA, cops found a gun in Flesh's (government name Stanley Howse) car. Too bad the sheriff wasn't allowing any bail for the once called fastest rapper alive. Dude is still in lock up until his hearing on Monday. Womp. More legal drama when you read the rest...
If you thought there was a chance the Giants would let Plaxico Burress back on the team--think again. The NY Giants officially cut Plax today. The General Manager said they "hung int here as long as they could" but it was time for them to release him today. Plax is still facing up to 3 and a half years in federal prison for those felony gun charges after accidentally shooting himself in the leg. His next court date is June 15th.
And Coolio was wildin' out today in court. He went before the judge today due to his cocaine possession charges from last month. But he showed up two hours late. The judge ripped him a new one. Coolio plead Not Guilty--and he's definitely not on the judge's good side. Good luck with that Coolio.
