*Young Thug’s former personal manager says his reputation has been dragged through the mud by the rapper’s financial team after they trashed him to cover their own incompetence, reports TMZ.
Manny Halley, who has also managed Keyshia Cole and Nicki Minaj, filed a $50 million defamation suit against David Weise & Associates.
According to TMZ, Weise’s company sent an email in December to a number of people claiming Manny had racked up more than $200,000 in unauthorized charges. The email was picked up by various urban blogs, and Manny says it has ruined his reputation.
Manny says the $200,000 all went to Young Thug’s private jets for his concert tour, and that Weise’s company bungled the rapper’s financial affairs to the point his cell phone service and the lights in his home were shut off.
Manny says before he got trashed he tried to get the Weise company fired, so that’s when they used the email as a preemptive strike.
