A recent skateboard attack now has Lil Wayne sued for the incident. The rapper allegedly had his bodyguards hit a promoter over the head with a skateboard, leading to the lawsuit.
According to a VIBE report on Feb. 9, Los Angeles promoter Alfredo Marino was the victim in the attack, who alleges that Weezy's bodyguards were ordered to hit him over the head. He told LA Weekly details of the skatepark attack, saying that he was star-struck when he saw Lil Wayne and was trying to get a photograph, but his bodyguards told him "Lil Wayne does not want to be bothered."
The bodyguards called him a "groupie," to which Marino told them he wasn't. However, Wayne kept calling him one, then ordered his bodyguards to hit the promoter. That resulted in Marino being knocked unconscious. He was taken to a nearby hospital and treated there for both a concussion and vertigo.
Marino said of the lawsuit he now has against Lil Wayne:
"Honestly, I'm not trying to be a millionaire for getting smacked over the head. I want him to realize that there are fans out there, tons of fans out there and this is the way he's going to treat them?...I'm a big Hip Hop fan, and I loved Lil Wayne's music. Now I hate his music. But I'm kind of like in the zone that everywhere I go I see Lil Wayne. I see him on TV. I hear him every damn day on the radio. I can't get away from this guy. It disgusts me."
Ironically, Weezy opened up a skatepark in his hometown of New Orleans, and has claimed he was retiring from rap to focus more on skating. However, he has a new album on the way called "I Am Not a Human Being II." He also has several more projects planned including "We Are Young Money Vol. 2" and "I Can't Feel My Face," a collaborative album with Juelz Santana.
