Lil Wayne has been ordered to pay $150,000 to a concert promoter for allegedly orchestrating a fake concert that was promoted under his name.
The promoter, Ramin Natan, sued Lil Wayne in January after Wayne and Migos booked shows they apparently never intended to perform.
According to Natan, he paid a go-between named Eric Stenger a half-million dollars to promote a Lil Wayne concert, which Natan believes eventually made its way to Wayne, despite Stenger not being a promoter or setting up the actual show.
Wayne never responded to the initial lawsuit, causing a judge to rule in favour of Natan, who called Migos and Wayne “Ponzi scheme artists” and said they used shell companies to get money for shows they never planned to really perform.
