Rapper to pay $2m in back debt on private jet

The rapper lost a lawsuit from Signature Group - a company that leases private jets to the rich and famous - who claims he's owing upto $2 million in back debt

Lil Wayne

Lil Wayne has been ordered to pay up to $2 million after he failed to cover up utility bills for his private jet.

The rapper, who recently split from girlfriend of one year, Christina Milian,  lost a lawsuit from Signature Group - a company which leases private jets to the rich and famous.

According to TMZ, Signature filed a lawsuit against Weezy in 2014 for missing payments during the first two years of a three-year deal with the company.  In their suit, Wayne was owing more than $1 million as of July 2014.

The 'Lolli Pop' rapper claimed he never signed any contract with Signature but the court disagreed. As a result, the court ruled in favor of Signature.

The money increased from $1 million to $1.8 million since it's been a year since the suit was filed.  Wayne also has to pay $200,000 in attorney's fees… hence the two million dollars.

Wayne is yet to comment on this issue.
