Lil Wayne is being sued by his former bodyguard, Carlos Christian, who alleges that Wayne assaulted him and threatened him with a gun. The lawsuit, which stems from an incident in December 2021, seeks compensatory and punitive damages. Lil Wayne’s camp is yet to respond to the allegations.
The Seriousness of the Allegations
Carlos Christian says he took the gun threat seriously, considering Lil Wayne’s history of weapons charges that led to a prison sentence. In December 2021, Christian reported to the police that Lil Wayne pulled an assault rifle on him during a dispute at the rapper’s Hidden Hills, CA home.
According to sources, an altercation between Lil Wayne and his bodyguard escalated to physical violence, leading to Wayne allegedly brandishing an AR-15. However, those close to Lil Wayne have denied the incident, stating that Wayne doesn’t even own a gun.
Carlos Christian claims that he suffered physical, emotional, and financial damages as a result of the alleged incident. He states that he incurred medical expenses, lost wages, and experienced emotional distress. As a result, he is seeking compensatory and punitive damages from Lil Wayne.
At this time, Lil Wayne’s camp has not responded to the lawsuit. The rapper, who has had a prominent career in the music industry, now faces potential legal repercussions if the allegations are proven to be true.
