Lil Wayne is reportedly being sued by his former personal chef, Morghan Medlock, for wrongful termination.
This is after the chef supposedly ditched him in Vegas to handle a pressing family emergency, per reports by TMZ.
Morghan Medlock filed a lawsuit against Wayne for what she claimed is wrongful termination, retaliation and various unlawful practices she was subjected to when he showed her the door just because she left her scheduled shift to take care of her injured 10-year-old son, who had been hospitalized.
Medlock claimed to have worked for the rapper for over a year and is seeking at least $500K (£410,000) in damages.
According to legal documents obtained by TMZ, Medlock was on a trip with Lil Wayne to Las Vegas during the Memorial Day Weekend – for which she claimed she was doing her job (cooking all his meals). Things were going great until… at some point during the trip, Medlock was notified that her 10-year-old son had sustained a head injury and had been hospitalized.
Medlock wanted to get back to her child (who was in L.A. ASAP) but claimed in the lawsuit that Lil Wayne was delaying the flight by smoking on the aircraft.
It is reported that rather than standing around and waiting for them to become organized, Medlock decided to get on a separate flight. She claimed to have notified Weezy’s assistant of her plans but was continuously asked by his team if she was quitting.
Even though she claimed to have informed them she wasn’t, Lil Wayne’s team eventually informed her that she’d been let go. According to the suit, a message directly from Wayne eventually reached her, which purportedly read, “Tell Chef Morghan this isn’t going to work.”
Medlock claimed that her firing violates CA law – to fire someone because they missed work to care for their sick or injured child – and is seeking restitution of at least $500,000 from Lil Wayne.
However, now, as per reports by The Neighborhood Talk, a source from Lil Wayne’s camp is claiming Medlock was actually let go for sharing videos of her job on social media.
In their Instagram post, the news outlet included numerous videos that Medlock supposedly posted on her personal social media pages, showing food she’d cooked for the rapper, including what is purportedly his favorite sandwich.
