Default Lil Wayne Ordered To Pay $2 Million In "The Carter" Documentary Lawsuit

Lil Wayne takes a L in his legal battle against the makers of "The Carter" and has been ordered to pay $2 million in damages.

While his controversial deposition may have taken up most of the recent spotlight, Lil Wayne has been embroiled in a legal battle with filmmaker Quincy Jones III over his '09 documentary The Carter. Now, in a recent report from TMZ, it appears that Weezy has lost the suit and been ordered to pay upwards of $2 million in damages.

A judge has ordered the YMCMB rapper to pay $2,195,000 to QD3 Entertainment for breach of contract and blocking the release of Jones' infamous documentary on the New Orleans rapper. Wayne's initial suit began in 2009 over failure to give Wayne final approval over the film, and was followed by Jones' counter-suit in 2011.

According to the report, Wayne's recent medical issues may have played a hand in the ruling, as did his notorious deposition. The rapper was unable to appear in court to testify in the case due to the seizure-like symptoms preventing him from flying, forcing his lawyer to rely on his video deposition.

Lil Wayne is also suing QD3 Entertainment for the unauthorized use of his music in the film. DX will keep you updated as more information comes to light in the case.
