It appears the details from Lil Wayne’s lawsuit against Cash Money and his “boss” Birdman have spilled. Get it inside….

Since Lil Wayne filed legal documents to sue his “daddy” Birdman and the Cash Money label for $51 million, the details of the lawsuit have leaked. You’ll recall Weezy blasting Birdman and Cash Money for not coughing up his dough ($10 milli to be exact) after he completed his much-delayed Tha Carter V.

In the leaked docs, it reveals the discrepancies between Weezy & Birdman surrounding The Carter V album, amendments to former contracts, the break down of how much money is owed and why.

An excerpt from the 21-page lawsuit states:

In early December, 2014, Carter delivered to Cash Money the sound recordings comprising the second of the solo albums, entitled Tha Carter V, provided for by the 2012 Amendment. Although obligated to pay Carter Eight Million Dollars ($8,000,000.00) at the commencement of the recording of Tha Carter V and Two Million Dollars($2,000,000.00) upon delivery of the album, Cash Money breached the 1998 Recording Agreement as amended specifically by the 2012 Amendment, by failing to pay Carter the Eight Million Dollar ($8,000,000.00) payment upon commencement of the recording and paying Carter only Two Million Dollars ($2,000,000.00) over the course of the recording of Tha Carter V. Moreover, Cash Money has refused to pay Carter the Two Million Dollars ($2,000,000.00) due upon delivery of Tha Carter V to Cash Money. Cash Money has refused to pay Carter the balance of Eight Million Dollars ($8,000,000.00) due Carter in respect of Tha Carter V, despite due demand therefore by Carter.

It also reveals there have been disputes between Wayne and Cash Money dating back to 2005, but amendments to their contracts were able to smooth things over. That is, until Wayne didn’t get his money. The “Start A Fire” rapper owns 49% of Young Money whereas Birdman owns the other $51%.

The lawsuit also shines light on disputes over money from Drake’s solo recordings. Young Money was supposed to receive 1/3 of his net profits that they never received. On top of that, Wayne/Young Money is seeking backpay for paying artists who claimed they did not receive payment from Cash Money. Yes…a LOT is going on.

Peep the documents here.

Looks like we may have a new celebrity couple in the works.

Retired NBA star Rick Fox and “Nip/Tuck” actress AnnaLynne McCord were all loved up at a pre-Super Bowl party in Arizona last night. And spies on the scene say the twosome spent much of their time together holding hands. They didn’t show up together, but it seems they could hardly get enough of one another while there.

According to PEOPLE, the 45-year old former Lakers baller (who divorced Vanessa Williams in 2004) and a few of his friends hit up the Hennessy V.S Super Bowl lounge at the W Hotel Thursday night. Later in the evening, the 27-year-old “90210” actress walked in and the two were inseparable after that.

A partygoer revealed the two were under each other the entire night, holding hands and getting extra touchy/feely. They were so into one another, when Rick was asked to snap pics with fans, he allegedly kept a hold of her hand as he smiled for the pics.

The source also said they overheard AnnaLynne call Rick her boyfriend. Oh?

For the first time, AnnaLynne appears on Rick's Instagram after he posted a shot of himself, his new girl and NBA TV style correspondent Lance Fresh last night during the pre-Super Bowl bash:

RIDE OR DIE CHICK: Gabrielle Union CHECKS Charles Barkley After Saying Dwyane Wade Didn’t Deserve To Make All-Star Team

If you mess with Gabrielle Union’s husband Dwyane Wade, expect to get checked! Gabby threw the ultimate shade towards retired NBA baller Charles Barkley after he said D. Wade didn’t deserve to make the All-Star team. Take a seat and grab some tea under her palm tree inside….

Miami Heat baller Dwyane Wade lucked up on a ride or die chick when he married “Being Mary Jane” star Gabrielle Union. Gabby is NOT here for anyone shading her man and will politely throw it right back.

Here’s how it went down....

Last night, retired NBA baller turned “Inside the NBA” analyst Charles Barkley was giving his honest opinion on this year’s All-Star team line up. And he believes Dwyane Wade should NOT have been chosen to play in this year’s NBA All-Star Game (going down Feb. 15th in NYC).

His reason? Well, he thinks D. Wade is a great player, but said the Miami Heat guard didn’t particularly have an “all-star year”. During the TNT broadcast he said,

“Dwyane’s great, [he’s] a Hall of Famer, but he didn’t deserve to make the All-Star team.” He added, "Dwyane Wade is not having an all-star year".

Check it:

His comments clearly didn’t sit well with Gabby, so she popped back at the retired NBA player with some epic shade. She tweeted:

“Forgive Charles. .. Kenny Smith is a 2x champion & his opinion is most sound,” she said. “It’s like me talkin bout Meryl Streep but I ain’t won nuthin.”


Now let’s put it in perspective. Kenny Smith, who hosts alongside Charles on "Inside the NBA", is also a former NBA star who brought home two NBA championships during his career. He felt D. Wade deserved to be on the team. However, Charles did NOT win ANY NBA championships during his career! Chile… the shade!

As the show went on, Charles was tipped off about Gabby’s tweet and he fired back at her saying,

“Well listen, first of all never mention you and Meryl Streep in the same sentence again. Meryl Streep would never be on ‘Snakes On A Plane’ or ‘Madea’”.

Kenny started calling Charles out, saying he was out of order. He continued,

"Well she could have been. I’ve seen her act, she could have been on ‘Snakes On A Plane’ or ‘Madea’. She’s taking shots at me. She’s pretty, she’s very pretty. I’m not one of them people who’s going to turn the other cheek. You say something bad about me, I’m going to say something about you.”
