Morghan Medlock, Lil Wayne's former cook, is suing him for $500,000, claiming that the musician unlawfully fired her when she had to tend to her injured son.
Why was Lil Wayne sued by his chef?
According to the woman in a recent lawsuit, Lil Wayne abruptly fired his personal chef after she left him in Vegas to attend to a serious family issue.
Lil Wayne, 40, was fired wrongfully, subjected to retribution, and engaged in many prohibited labor practices during his more than a year-long job with the musician just since she went to assist her hurt son.
In court documents, Medlock stated that she joined the Lollipop artist, who threw a Weezy Christmas bash at a Dave & Buster's for 150 youths over the weekend in New Orleans, in Las Vegas during the Memorial Day weekend in her stead as the rapper's chef. She claims she was just doing her job, which included preparing all of LW's meals.

Medlock obviously wanted to return to L.A. as soon as possible once she heard that his son had a head injury. But alleges Wayne and company were delaying the flight. She took another flight and went to take care of her injured son.
She was fired in violation of California law because it is illegal to terminate someone for being absent from work in order to care for their ill or injured child, and she is suing Wayne for at least $500,000.
