Lil Wayne is being sued by his former bodyguard Carlos Christian, who claims the rapper ‘punched’ him and ‘threatened him with a gun’
Christian alleges that the hip hop star, 41, brandished a semiautomatic rifle and ‘threatened to shoot him’ during an altercation in December 2021, according to legal documents obtained by TMZ.
The guard also claims the hitmaker, whose real name is Dwayne Michael Carter Jr., ‘punched him in the ear’ during the incident, which took place at Wayne’s Hidden Hills, CA home.
Christian called the cops at the time and accused Wayne of threatening him with an AR-15, but sources close to the musician denied the incident took place and claimed Wayne didn’t even own a gun.
The guard reportedly took the gun threat seriously, as Wayne previously spent time in prison for weapons charges.
Christian claims he has incurred medical expenses, lost wages, and suffered emotional distress due to the alleged altercation and is looking for compensatory and punitive damages.
At the time of the alleged incident deputies responded to a call about an assault with a deadly weapon at a Hidden Hills, California home on at around 1.40pm.
When they arrived, deputies told DailyMail.com, a Hispanic male adult working as a security guard said he had a verbal altercation that turned physical with the black male resident.
A dispute ensued when Wayne accused the guard of taking photos of him and leaking them to the media, TMZ reported at the time.
