Bryan "Birdman" Williams is facing a $75,000 lawsuit filed by a woman who claims that he failed to show up for a Las Vegas event last year. Lana Fuchs and her company Billionaire Mafia LLC says she wired $50,000 to a Florida attorney named Philip Brutus who claimed he represented the Cash Money CEO as well as Nicki Minaj. Only Birdman never showed up at Club Eve during the Magic convention as expected.

 

The lawsuit also states that Billionaire Mafia reps spoke with Birdman, who said Philip Brutus wasn't his attorney and that his signature was forged.

"Birdman had stated that he never signed the agreement in question, but it appears that his signature on the agreement appeared to be not Birdman's, but forged signatures," the lawsuit alleges.

 

Not only that, but Brutus was suspended from practicing law in Florida when he agreed to the contract and Fuch later learned that Birdman's performance fee is $35,000 not $50,000. She now seeking $75,000 for damages and lost profits.

 

Other Cash Money Records artists who've been falsely represented in the past include Lil Wayne, Nicki Minaj and Drake.
