It seems rapper Lil Wayne believes the stories about former music exec Memphitz’s alleged violent tendencies. Memphitz, real name Mickey Wright, filed a defamation lawsuit today in Atlanta against his former artist (and former lover) K. Michelle and Viacom (VH1′s parent company).
K. Michelle, who is a cast member of VH1′s popular reality show Love & Hip Hop Atlanta, accused Memphitz of stealing her recording budget and assaulting her. But Memphitz vigorously denies those accusations.
According to a website called Gossip Extra, Weezy isn’t taking any chances with his seed. The diminutive rapper has allegedly hired bodyguards — at a cost of $10,000 a month — to keep his only daughter, Reginae, safe from Memphitz’s alleged mood swings.
“You bet that Lil Wayne is concerned,” a source in Wright’s camp told Gossip Extra. “He mostly wants to make sure their daughter never gets caught in the middle of anything.”
The bodyguards are supposedly watching over Reginae — not her mother, Toya.
