This is not the kind of attention Lupe Fiasco is looking for. The Chicago rapper is being sued by “drug kingpin” Charles Patton’s soon to be ex-wife, who claims the MC hid millions of dollars on his behalf. Patton is the infamous Chilly Patton, Fiasco’s mentor and business partner who in 2007 was sentenced to 44 years in prison after being convicted of drug charges.

TMZ reports:

Fiasco is a big-time rapper … who’s being sued by the estranged wife of convicted drug kingpin Charles Patton, who’s currently serving a 44-year prison sentence for running a heroin enterprise.

According to the suit, Patton’s estranged wife believes Fiasco conspired with the drug kingpin to move more than NINE MILLION DOLLARS into various bank accounts in an effort to block her from making a play on the cash in their ongoing divorce.

It’s pretty complicated stuff — but Patton’s wife believes she’s uncovered the money trail … and it went through Lupe. Now, she’s suing to get what she claims is rightfully hers.

Lupe’s lawyer tells TMZ … Inita’s allegations are baseless and will be proven false at trial. Adding, “There are no secret accounts and no illicit instructions.”

Consider this another case of real life being stranger than fiction.

Let us know what you think of Lupe Fiasco’s latest predicament in the comments.
