Antonio Brown Used Lil Wayne for Scam?

Last week exiled NFL wide receiver Antonio Brown was accused of selling a fake Richard Mille watch [click here if you missed that]. 

Now the same person is claiming AB used Lil Wayne to scam them out of $100,000...

Former NFL bad boy Antonio Brown is being accused of trying to defraud a Florida-based music producer of more than $500,000 in a string of incidences, including reportedly using rapper Lil Wayne's name as a means of pocketing $100,000.
Brown is accused of being in breach of contract and defaming music record label Secure The Bag Entertainment (STB), with whom he signed an 'exclusive artist agreement' in a lawsuit filed in Sarasota County Circuit on Wednesday. STB are seeking damages for the aforementioned reasonings.
STB is founded and owned by Ryan Kane, who filed a separate, individual lawsuit against Brown two days prior, having allegedly been sold a fake $168,000 Richard Mille watch by the ex-NFL star.
In the most recent suit, Brown is accused of a litany of unscrupulous acts, including trying to 'defraud' STB of $100,000 in a collaboration between the record label and 'one of the world's most famous rap artists' for a feature with Brown on his song, Cracked -- which Brown teased at Rolling Loud.
According to the New York Post, Kane revealed the artist in question to be Lil Wayne. Per the suit, Brown had told Kane the rapper would accept $250,000 for a feature and video on the song, which needed to be paid via Brown's own label; CAB Records.
Feeling 'pressured' Kane allegedly obliged, writing the check before putting a stop on it, to which Brown threatened 'the check better be good.' According to the lawsuit, Kane then contacted the 'featured artist's' record label, only to be told he had agreed to a $150,000 deal, not the $250,000 Brown allegedly insisted.
Upon signing for STB, Brown was said to have been paid $150,000 and performed at Rolling Loud in Los Angeles days later. Brown is alleged to have returned from California with a $178,000 expenses invoice, in which 'the vast majority [was] grossly overstated or completely fabricated.'
Brown also allegedly sent a series of derogatory statements about, and to, members of STB. Speaking to a promoter in Chicago regarding a dispute with his label, Brown instructed him to 'suck my d*** fa***t tell them to pay there [sic] bills cheap a** white boys.'
