Weezy's manager says he hasn't paid her since 2005.

Although Lil Wayne is serving his time in jail, he can't seem to escape the barrage of lawsuits aimed at him. This week, his former manager Melissa Philipian sued the rapper for $500,000 on top of the 15 percent of his estimated $200 million earnings five years ago.

In 2005, Philipian was reportedly fired by Lil Wayne for booking what he felt to be a sub-par hotel room. In April 2006, she sued Wayne for failing to pay the amount even after having signed a three-year agreement, and booking 21 shows. Weezy claimed that he never signed a contract with Philipian and that she forged his signature. The matter was later settled out of court for $375,000.
