Birdman Accused of Screwing Ex-Employee Out of Thousands

By TheBlast Staff

Birdman's ex-property manager really wants to know what happened to his paycheck.

The Cash Money music mogul was recently hit with yet another lawsuit; this time accusing him of screwing over a former employee who says the rapper owes him over $20,000.

Nicolas Penzo sued Cash Money Records and Birdman last month in Florida court, claiming he worked for the rapper as his property manager from 2015 through the spring of 2017, but wasn't paid in full for his work.

According to court documents obtained by The Blast, Penzo claims he was only being paid every two or three months, sometimes in the form of checks, but mostly in cash. He says in the documents that Birdman and company owe him $8,900 in unpaid wages and an additional $15,000 based on his going rate of $150 per day.

Penzo's duties for the "Respek" rapper included painting, handling the cleaning services and coordinating with contractors to fix things, such as electrical work.

He wants to collect $23,900 in unpaid wages and overtime.

This is just another legal hurdle for Birdman — earlier this year he was booted from his luxurious Miami mansion for defaulting on a $12 million loan.

Of course, Penzo's going to have to take a number and get in line. His thousands still pale in comparison to the millions of dollars Lil Wayne claims he got screwed out of.
