Lil Wayne's Lawsuit Against Birdman And Cash Money Could Go Away If They Pay Him! What's The Hold Up?!

no title

This whole thing could be settled and resolved with just a little cash money! OH, the irony!

Lil Wayne has been doing everything in his power to get the money he so rightfully deserves from Birdman and Cash Money Records.

He recently filed a lawsuit against his mentor, asking to be released from his contract with the label, along with $51 million dollars!

However, if Birdman just pays the cash he owes the rapper, Wayne doesn't necessarily have the grounds to ask to leave since the contract would no longer be breached.

Earlier this week, Lindsay Lohan turned in her finished community service hours as a probation requirement from her 2012 reckless driving case.

Unfortunately for her, the prosecutor isn't too impressed by what she's been doing to serve her community.

In fact, after reviewing some of her hours, the prosecutor, Terry White, launched an investigation to see what exactly LiLo did for her hours and he's not happy.

This sucks.

A woman from central Floriday was arrested this past Friday for allegedly drowning one of her puppies in a toilet in the bathroom of the Central Nebraska Regional Airport.

Cynthia Anderson apparently tried to sneak the puppy, who was less than three weeks old, onto an airplane in her luggage. When she was discovered by the TSA, who said she could not bring the pup on board, she was seen going into a bathroom with her dogs and the puppy in her carry-on bag.

The Doberman puppy was discovered fifteen minutes after the woman left the bathroom by a different person. The puppy had been drowned in one of the toilets.
