American Express Sued Lil Wayne Over Near $90,000 Debt'


He has been embroiled in a number of lawsuits over money in recent years despite supposedly being worth $150 million.

And now Lil Wayne is reportedly being sued by American Express over unpaid debts of almost $90,000.

The credit card giants launched the action after the dinky MC failed to settle his bill for more than half a year.

According to TMZ, legal papers show the 33-year-old Got Money favourite is being sued for $86,396.75, as well as attorneys' fees.

The documents also claimed that the pint-sized star, whose real name is Dwayne Carter Jr, has owed money since December 2015.

Failing to pay such a paltry sum certainly belies the I'm A Beast star's purported net worth, which stands at a staggering $150 million.

Last year he was ordered to pay up $2 million to a private jet leasing company after he was found to have failed to stump up $1 million in debts.

As well as the original $1 million, he was told to pay $800,000 in damages and an additional $200,000 in legal fees.

This week it emerged he is also being sued for allegedly punching a bouncer in the face when trying to enter his own BET Awards after-party at the Hyde nightclub in Los Angeles back in June.

According to TMZ he is accused of attacking the doorman from behind and punched him in the head after an argument broke out because members of his entourage were upset they got searched

He was also hit with a string of suits between 2008 and 2011 over missed shows, allegedly unpaid royalties and even supposed copyright infringement.

Earlier this month the colourful four-time Grammy winner was 'moments away' from appearing onstage at the trendy TAO nightclub in Las Vegas when he had an ecliptic seizure, which forced him to cancel his performance.
