According to The Blast, Birdman has been ordered to pay an ex-employee by the name of Nicolas Jose Penzo $1,069,876. Penzo filed a lawsuit against Birdman, Cash Money Records, and Pine View Management LLC after he claims he wasn't properly paid for the services he performed for Birdman and his companies. 

Penzo worked as Birdman's property manager from 2015 until May 2017. His job entailed painting, handling the cleaning services, and coordinating with contractors for other property fixes. Penzo said he worked between 48-60 hours a week and was to be paid $150/day. However, Penzo says he was never compensated properly for his services.
