Lil Wayne's Crazy Deposition Video May Have Cost Him $2.2 Million

Via MTV News

Lil Wayne has to shell out more than two-million-dollars after losing two lawsuits based on Quincy Jones the Third's film "The Carter."  According to documents obtained by TMZ, a jury ordered Weezy to pay Jones nearly two-point-two-million-dollars as part of Jones' countersuit that alleged Wayne hindered the release of the film, which cut into its profits.  The jury also sided with Jones on Wayne's original lawsuit.  Wayne sued Jones in September over what he felt was a "scandalous portrayal" of him in Jones' 2009 film.  The rapper also claimed that Jones had illegally used his music in the film.

Lil Wayne never appeared in court for the trial.  The rapper was prohibited from flying to California for the trial after suffering a series of health scares.  Because he couldn't testify his lawyer showed the jury video of Wayne's deposition testimony, in which the rapper dodges questions from Jones' lawyer. The judge later called Wayne's behavior "irresponsible" and "unreasonable."
