Young Thug’s Ex Manager Suing For $50 Million
It’s officially time for Young Thug’s (real name Jeffrey Williams) business manager to lawyer up. theJasmineBRAND.com exclusively reports, the rapper’s former manager, Manny Halley, is taking legal action against David Weise & Associates.
theJasmineBRAND broke the story, David Weise & Associates (Thug’s business manager) accused Manny of stealing funds and inappropriately using them on behalf of the rapper.
This year Manny partnered up with Lyor Cohen and added Young Thug to his “Imani Entertainment Group” for management.
Thug’s manager threatened to contact LAPD’s criminal department, claiming Manny attempted to charge over $200,000 to one of Thug’s business manager’s employees account. In addition to charging up credit cards, they claimed that Manny had also been bouncing checks.
