Lupe Fiasco may be a tabloid bad boy over his outspoken criticisms of everything from the president to other rappers, but he has never been accused of doing anything criminal. Now a new report claims that Lupe has now been accused of hiding money for a major drug lord.
According to TMZ, Inita, the estranged wife of convicted drug kingpin Charles Patton, who is serving a 44-year jail sentence for his heroin business, is suing Lupe, claiming that he helped Patton hide more than nine million dollars from her in an effort to stiff her out of receiving any major money during their divorce.
The wife claims that Lupe and Patton hid the money by spreading it between various bank accounts and that she recently came across the money trial and discovered the secret plot to keep her from receiving a divorce payday.
Inita is now suing for access to the money, but Lupe’s lawyers claim that her accusations ridiculous and baseless. “There are no secret accounts and no illicit instructions,” they said.
