(AllHipHop News) Lil Wayne has been hit with a multi-million dollar lawsuit filed by a former manager that claims she was cheated out of her share of the rapper’s estimated $200 million dollars in earnings. According to the Hollywood Reporter, Lil Wayne’s former manager Melissa Philipian and White Tides Entertainment Group were fired by Lil Wayne in 2005, because the rapper was unhappy with the quality of hotel rooms that were being booked for him. In April of 2006, Philipian sued Lil Wayne, claiming she was owed $500,000 in commissions in addition to 15 percent of his total earnings. Philipian claims Lil Wayne signed a three-year agreement in 2005 and that her company booked at least 21 shows for the rapper. Lil Wayne claimed he never signed an agreement with Philipian or White Tides and that Philipian allegedly forged his signature. The case was eventually settled out of court, but a YouTube video that recently surfaced has resulted in a new lawsuit. In the new lawsuit, which was filed in Florida District Court, Lil Wayne, Cash Money and Universal Music Group are accused of fraud, defamation, breach of contract and other allegations. Philipian claims the recently-surfaced video shows that Lil Wayne lied under oath, about his involvement with Philipian and White Tides. Additionally, Lil Wayne allegedly blacklisted Philipian by claiming she stole money. Philipian claims that she used to manage Tyga, who was advanced $7,000, but the artist refused to work with Philipian any further, after Lil Wayne refused to work with any artist associated with the woman.
