2 Chainz Wants Car Lawsuit Dismissed
(AllHipHop News) Rapper 2 Chainz has accused the plaintiff suing him over an outstanding car payment of impersonating his lawyer in an alleged attempt to convince him to settle the case.
Joshua Waddell of Highline Holdings Group filed suit against the "I'm Different" hitmaker in October, claiming he agreed to buy a Rolls-Royce Phantom Drophead for just over $262,200.
The car was delivered to 2 Chainz's home with $18,320 still outstanding on his tab, and when he reportedly refused to pay up, Waddell pursued legal action.
However, 2 Chainz, real name Tauheed Epps, is demanding the case be tossed after accusing Waddell of resorting to fraudulent actions to settle the dispute.
According to TMZ , he alleges Waddell initially sent him texts from an unidentified number posing as 2 Chainz's lawyer, suggesting he pay the balance and interest to resolve the case.
The hip-hop star caught on to the ploy as he recognized the phone number from prior communications, but days later, he received another text from a different number.
He claims that was Waddell pretending to be a lawyer for his car sales firm, telling 2 Chainz they had been awarded a default judgment, although there was no such evidence to back up the statement.
The rapper has since confirmed the texts were never sent by the two parties' lawyers, and now he wants Waddell to pay the price for his alleged meddling and have a judge dismiss the suit.
