Lil Wayne sued by his personal chef for Sh62 million

The chef is asking for close to 62 million for wrongful termination of work

American rapper and businessman Lil Wayne is in the middle of a court case after his former personal chef sued him.

The chef identified as Morghan Medlock is suing the "Make it Rain" hitmaker for close to 62 million shillings for what she terms as wrongful termination of her work.

In the lawsuit, Morghan (who has worked for Weezy for over 2 years) claims that the mogul fired her in a heartbeat after she ditched him in Vegas to deal with a pressing family emergency.

It even gets crazy... The lady in the suit claims that the 40-year-old even canned her after she got back from a pressing family emergency.

According to legal documents regarding the case Morghan's allegations towards Lil Wayne include wrongful termination, retaliation, and several unlawful practices that she says she was subjected to when he canned her earlier this year just because she went to go help her injured son.

The chef highlighted that the drama all started from a trip to Vegas she tagged along for during Memorial Day weekend for which she says she was doing her job (which includes cooking all of Weezy's meals.)

Things were going smoothly up until Medlock was notified of a head injury her 10-year-old son had sustained that left him hospitalized.

Following this, she hurriedly tried getting back to L. A but claims Wayne and his crew were screwing up the flight back over shenanigans, allegedly delaying things by toking up on the aircraft.

Instead of just chilling and waiting for them to get their act together, Medlock says she hightailed it out of there on a separate flight.

She insisted that she notified Wayne's assistant of the situation and assumed they'd understand.

Instead, she claims she was terminated.

Medlock says after she left, Wayne's team kept asking her if she was quitting to which she says she clearly responded, "no."

After her son was dealt with, Medlock says she tried getting back into the swing of things as a head chef but claims she got the cold shoulder.

Eventually, Medlock claims somebody on Wayne's team texted her an ungraceful goodbye message, and she was later formally told she was being let go with a message from Wayne saying, "tell Chef Morghan this isn't going to work" 

She says her firing is in violation of CA law which prohibits an employee to fire someone because they missed work to care for their sick or injured child, and she wants at least $500k from Wayne for the injustice.
