Lil Wayne wants to know how Birdman spent $70 million, money that he was supposed to share with him. Wayne says Universal Music Group advanced Birdman $100 million for a distribution deal, but Wayne’s pockets weren’t properly lined, according to legal docs obtained by TMZ.
Wayne isn’t happy because on paper, he and Birdman are partners on Cash Money/Young Money. He claims Birdman’s admitted spent approximately $70 mil of the advance on royalties, marketing and recording expenses, but now Wayne wants to see receipts to back that up.
Birdman’s camp says it’s already handed over 22,015 pages of documents to Wayne’s lawyers, but said lawyers say none of those pages detail how the $70 mil was spent. This isn’t going anywhere, anytime soon.
