Back in November of 2012, a Los Angeles jury found Lil Wayne in the wrong, and ordered him to pay a substantial amount for blocking the release of The Carter Documentary, and ruled that the rapper destroyed any potential profit to be made by Quincy Jones III off the release of the film.
After he lost the case, Lil Wayne vowed that he would not pay the ordered judgment to Jones III.
Up until April 2013, Wayne held true to his word and did not pay a single dollar to Quincy Jones III. With no money being paid out to Jones, his Miami lawyer, David Goldstein, domesticated the California judgment to Florida.
With the case’s judgment being brought to Florida, Jones’ attorney filed suit against Lil Wayne in Florida seeking over $11 million dollars worth of the rapper’s assets, which include a waterfront home and a Bugatti.
As Jones III’s lawyer was prepping his case against Lil Wayne, the rapper decided to pay up and wrote a check to pay off his debt owed to Quincy Jones III. And according to papers filed this week with the Miami-Dade County Clerk’s office, it shows that Lil Wayne paid a $3.4 million judgment won against him in California by Quincy Jones III.
Jones’ lawyer didn’t comment on Lil Wayne paying off his debt to his client, but he did say that his case going after the rapper’s assets has been dismissed.
