Lil Wayne has been sued by his tour bus driver, who claims the rapper tried to kill him while on tour in 2014.
Mark Jones, who is the driver, claims he was hired to drive Wayne during his tour. According to TMZ, Wayne and his crew were being driven around for his summer concert tour when the driver stopped for a refuel and Wayne allegedly lost his temper.
The driver, in his own words, says Wayne became irate and started cursing, to the point the driver became scared and continued driving without refueling. Jones says even after he kept driving without refuelling, Wayne kept his tirade going, threatening to pistol whip him, ‘whip his a$$’ and finish the job by killing him.’
When things got out of hand, Jones said Wayne came at him with a gun, cocked it at close range and demanded: ‘I want to get to the hotel now.’ Although Jones said he obliged and the 30-minute drive was in total silence, he’s now suing Wayne for false imprisonment, assault and emotional distress.
