Lil Wayne to drunk to perform (Taken from www.music-news.com 7-10-2009)
LIL WAYNE is being sued by the promotors of a gig he missed in the Bahamas who claim he was too drunk to take the stage.
The Lollipop hitmaker was hired by Red City Entertainment and given a $210,000 (£140,000) advance to perform for 5,500 fans in Nassau last September (08).
When he didn't show for the concert, police were called in and allegedly found the star passed out in his hotel room.
Initial reports suggested the rapper - real name Dwayne Carter, Jr. - was too tired for the gig.
But it has now emerged Red City Entertainment's legal team allege Lil Wayne was drunk.
Lawyer Glenn Gitomer tells New York Post gossip column PageSix: "He appeared to be intoxicated."
