A female Morgan State student is suing Weezy F. after she was mowed down by the crowd at a concert when Wayne (or his bill-handlers) “threw money into the crowd during the rapper’s performance, a stunt known as ‘making it rain.’” (What, no “on them hoes,” Associated Press?)
Layne alleges in the suit, filed Tuesday in Baltimore Circuit Court, that she was trampled, lost consciousness and suffered a “serious closed head injury” that required hospitalization. She has suffered since from memory loss, lapses in concentration and frequent and severe headaches, according to the complaint.
Along with Lil’ Wayne, whose given name is Dwayne Michael Carter, the suit names Universal Records Inc., Cash Money Records Inc. and Young Money Touring Inc. Layne is seeking $1 million in damages.
Actually I’m surprised this hasn’t happened more often. Or are most people smart enough to keep the rainmaking on stage? Two other ladies were also injured in the resulting downpour, but no word yet if they’re also planning on suing Wayne over their rain-related injuries.
