Tyga Reportedly Drops $10 Million Lawsuit Against Lil Wayne And Birdman
Tyga coming for YMCMB !!
Last year Tyga filed a lawsuit against Birdman's Cash Money and Lil Wayne's Young Money Entertainment, claiming that they owed him "significant sums of money." In total, the suit claimed they owed him at least $1 million in unpaid royalties for his Careless World and Hotel California albums. Now The Blast reports that he has officially dropped the $10 million lawsuit, voluntarily opting for entire case to be closed.
The lawsuit cited what Tyga claimed was a breach of contract and was seeking $10 million in damages. Late last year, it was looking likely that Birdman and Tyga were working towards a settlement, but those talks eventually died down. Ultimately, Birdman reportedly came to the conclusion that Tyga actually owned Cash Money instead of the other way around. Cash Money denied the allegations leveled against them, although it didn't look great for them at the time considering their history with Weezy.
Lil Wayne famously sued Cash Money for a whopping $51 million in 2015, claiming that they had deliberately witheld funds and continually violated the terms of his contract. He also said that they were responsible for the delay of his Tha Carter V album. Birdman and Wayne reached a settlement in 2018, allegedly walking away with an impressive eight figures. It's not clear exactly how much he got from the settlement, however, as both parties were legally prohibited from speaking further about the case.
