According to a report from TMZ, Young Thug’s old management team lost a lawsuit against his new representation. Manny Halley, who has managed people like Nicki Minaj and Keyshia Cole, will receive a seven-figure check from David Weise And Associations after they came to an agreement in a defamation lawsuit.
TMZ reports that Halley sued Young Thug’s former finance workers because his team had racked up around $200,000 in unauthorized charges.
Manny claims that the former management team was trying to take him down because he supposedly had tried to get them fired for messing up the rapper’s finances.
However, they managed to get it taken care of in a court of law, so thankfully, that’s one legal problem for Mr. Thug handled, one of many. Ever since his career began, the rapper has had a number of different problems in the courts as well as with the police.
Back in April 2015, when he shared a tour bus with Lil Wayne, a group of Bloods – the street gang – shot at them, and the bus driver sued for exposing him to gunfire.
The driver sued Cash Money Records, Young Money Records, as well as Birdman and Young Thug. And in January 2017, a promoter filed a suit against Thug because he didn’t show up to a concert at Sahlen’s Stadium.
The rapper had signed a $55,000 contract. And he did the same thing again in Texas in April 2016, after he failed to appear for a show. Additionally, he slapped a woman outside of a club in April 2017 but was cleared of battery soon after by the judge.
The charges were dropped due to insufficient evidence. In addition to random legal troubles, Young Thug has been caught with drugs more than once, including cocaine and marijuana. And in April 2017, Heritage Select Homes sued him for $2,2 million in missed house payments.
