Lil Wayne is facing a new lawsuit –for allegedly threatening to kill his former tour bus driver Mark Jones, and causing him emotional distress.
Jones, states the problem started during the Buffalo stop of Wayne’s tour when he pulled over to get gas. This apparently enraged Wayne who began to start cursing because the refuelling stop delayed the trip to get the hotel. So he began to threaten Jones making him afraid and continue driving without refuelling. Jones claims that the rapper continued to curse, threatening to unload his pistol and kill him.
Jones is suing Wayne for false imprisonment, assault, and emotional distress. Jones was hired to drive Wayne and his crew around for his 2014 summer concert tour.
It is not the first Wayne has been hit with legal issues. In July 2007 he was sentenced to jail after a concert in New York. Wayne was charged with once count of criminal weapons possession and one charge of criminal possession of a loaded weapon.
In 2010 he faced another legal issue. An Arizona judge sentenced Wayne to three years’ probation stemming from his 2008 arrest in the state over drugs and firearm possession charges.
Lil Wayne is also currently in the middle of a lawsuit, suing Cash Money Records after claiming he was a ‘prisoner’ at the label after refusing to release his long-awaited album Tha Carter V.
