Lil Wayne Dropped Cash Money Lawsuit To Refile In New Orleans

(Radio.com) On Tuesday morning, rumors broke that Lil Wayne would be dropping his $51 million lawsuit against Cash Money. Now it looks like that news may have been only partly right: Wayne is only dropping the lawsuit in order to re-file it again in New Orleans, The Fader reports.

That news comes according to Karen Civil, who tweeted that the case had been moved to New Orleans--the rapper's home turf. To recap, this all seems to have started over negotiations involving Tha Carter V, which was supposed to have come out several months ago.

The album is still in limbo, and Wayne has expressed his extreme frustration with his former partner Birdman. His attempts to get out of his deal have culminated in the massive lawsuit, which asks for money not only for unpaid advances, but for percentages of the income from Drake and Nicki Minaj's careers as well.
