The bouncer who Lil Wayne reportedly punched in late June has lawyered up and is prepping a lawsuit, reports TMZ.

As previously reported, a bouncer working at Hyde nightclub in Hollywood, following the BET Awards, claims he was punched in the face by the rapper after getting into an argument with him and his entourage.

Following the incident, the bouncer filed a report with the LAPD.

Wayne has since denied punching the guy, but admits there was a brief altercation.

The bouncer’s attorney, Arsineh Aghakhani of Los Angeles City Law, tells TMZ she’s prepping a lawsuit against Lil Wayne for battery.

It’s unclear how much they are seeking in the lawsuit.
