According to court documents obtained by The Blast, the rapper has head back to court in the case he brought against his former attorney, Ronald Sweeney.
In the case, he accuses Sweeney of overcharging him for years and taking a huge cut of all his deals. Wayne has claimed Sweeney’s law license was suspended at one point.
In newly filed court documents, Wayne points to a recent victory Johnny Depp scored in court. Depp is suing his own former lawyer for $30 million in a separate ongoing case.
