According to legal documents, obtained by The Blast, a confidential settlement was reached between the rapper and a Los Angeles club security guard who claimed he was the victim of a “racially motivated” attack.
Lil’ Wayne Settles Lawsuit After Allegedly Punching Security Guard
Andrew Nunemacher filed the lawsuit back in 2016, claiming he was assaulted by Wayne while working the door at the popular nightclub ‘Hyde’ in L.A. In the documents, Nunemacher says the rapper’s entourage became angry and out of control while he was trying to secure the club’s front door. During the melee, Andrew says Weezy punched him in the face and knocked him to the ground. Plus, he says Wayne yelled, “F–k you, white boy!”
The case was filed under the California state ‘Unruh Civil Rights Act,’ alleging the attack was partially motivated by his “Caucasian ancestry and descent.”
Rapper’s Settlement Is Confidential, Unclear If Money Changed Hands
Although the settlement doesn’t specifically state an amount of money that might have changed hands, if any, it does state “the settlement agreement conditions dismissal of this matter on the satisfactory completion of specified terms that are not be performed within 45 days of the date of the settlement.” In other words, whatever is the payment or agreement to settle the case, must get done for them to get rid of the lawsuit.
The original case included allegations of “assault, battery, and intentional infliction of emotional distress.”
In response to the lawsuit, sources close to Wayne denied that any punch took place — and say that the Hyde employee mistakenly grabbed Wayne by the arm. He also says the bouncer apologized for the incident. Wayne’s lawyers said the security footage from the incident “completely belying’ that the attack occurred. Plus, as for physical damage, they said he “had no issue working the rest of his shift following the alleged incident.”
Lil’ Wayne’s Legal Problems Wiped Away By President Donald Trump
Nunemacher also included SBE Entertainment (who owned the club) and Young Money Entertainment (Lil’ Waye’s record label.) The party was promoted as an afterparty for the BET Music Awards.
Interestingly, Lil’ Wayne got a bit of help in another legal case from former President Donald Trump. The rapper was previously charged with possession of a firearm by a convicted felon. The charge was handed down by prosecutors after they found Weezy carrying a gun and bullets inside of a private jet. According to reports, the musician admitted a gold-plated pistol found in his luggage belonged to him. Also, police claim they found an assortment of drugs on the plane, including substances believed to be cocaine, ecstasy, weed, pain killers, and prescription-strength cough syrup.
The rapper was not allowed to possess a firearm due to a previous 2010 conviction, where he was found with a semi-automatic firearm on his tour bus. At the time, Wayne served 8 months of a one-year sentence on Riker’s Island in New York.
