Lil Wayne Sued By Security Guard

Accusing the Grammy-winning musician of threatened behavior during an incident at the rapper’s residence in Hidden Hills, California in 2021, on Friday (12.01,) a former security guard staffer for Lil Wayne filed a lawsuit against the the musician.

According to the seven-page complaint, Carlos Christian alleges Dwayne Michael Carter Jr. (pka Lil Wayne) pointed a semiautomatic rifle at him “as a threat,” then punched him in the ear with a fist “while waving around the semiautomatic rifle.” The filing states that the guard feared he was about to be shot,

Filed in Los Angeles County Superior Court, the paperwork states “It reasonably appeared to plaintiff that (Lil Wayne) was about to carry out the threat.” “Plaintiff suffered severe emotional distress, requiring him to seek mental health treatment for Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) stemming directly from this incident.”

Seeking compensatory and punitive damages, the plaintiff says he racked up medical bills from the alleged assault and battery resulting in lost wages and earning capacity.

The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department previously told Rolling Stone it was investigating a “verbal altercation” involving a security staffer and an adult male who allegedly “brandished a firearm” on Dec. 1, 2021 at the Hidden Hills address. The department didn’t name Lil Wayne specifically, but it issued the statement in response to a request that did name the “Lollipop” rapper.

Anonymous law enforcement sources reportedly told TMZ that the dispute involved Lil Wayne accusing the security guard of taking photos and leaking them to the media. Sources close to Lil Wayne denied the incident took place and said the rapper didn’t own a gun, TMZ reported.

Lil Wayne, 41, previously pleaded guilty to criminal gun possession in New York. He picked up a subsequent gun charge after FBI officials searched his Gulfstream jet during a December 2019 stop at a Miami-area airport and found a gold-plated pistol. He pleaded guilty in that case in December 2020. While he was awaiting sentencing in that federal case, he received a full presidential pardon from Donald Trump.
