Lil Wayne sued over teen's record contract

July 2nd, 2013 3:00am EDT

Lil Wayne Lil Wayne is facing legal action from a teenage singer he signed to his Young Money Entertainment label amid allegations the youngster has been abandoned by the hip-hop star.

Torion Sellers claims the Lollipop hitmaker reneged on a promise to release his debut album by spring, 2012 after signing him when he was 13, and the now 15-year-old artist is eager to be released from his contract so he can pursue other opportunities.

He has filed papers in a U.S. court asking a judge to declare his deal invalid because the business arrangement he agreed to with Wayne and his label partners was not submitted for court approval - which is a legal requirement for all contracts with minors, reports TMZ.com.

Wayne has yet to respond to the court action.
