When Wayne argued with the driver, Williams says he was punched after trying to defuse the dispute by getting between the two as the argument escalated.
The punch was described as a clenched fist and struck the former assistant in the jaw, made worse by Wayne’s numerous rings and large pieces of jewelry on his hands.
“The combination of a clenched fist and the numerous rings and large jewels on the hands of [Wayne] caused great damage to [Williams]”, the court documents allege.
The attendant eventually said he got off the plane and was treated at a local urgent care center, RadarOnline reports.
Williams added that she did not hear from Wayne or Young Money after the incident, except for a letter she received demanding that she return a Bluetooth speaker and backpack from the company.
Victims Claims Suffered Emotionally and Physically, Seeking Unspecified Damages
He also claims he has suffered mental anguish and humiliation since the coup, as well as having “incurred general damages, including medical expenses, in amounts to be proven at trial,” according to court documents.
Williams is seeking unspecified damages, as well as additional punitive damages.
“Lil Wayne was stubborn and malicious and intended to oppress and cause harm to [Williams]. [Williams] therefore, you are entitled to punitive damages,” the suit says.
The wrongful termination claims stem from the fact that the rapper fired him after the incident, and Williams’ lawsuit also claims he was fired “based on his race and color in violation” of California state law.

RadarOnline reports that Wayne has yet to respond to the lawsuit in court.
The rapper has been busy preparing for his Lil Weezyana Festival, taking place in his hometown of New Orleans on Saturday, where other acts like Moneybagg Yo, Coi Leray, Rob 49 and more will perform.
