MIAMI, FL. Wednesday Oct.31.2007 / -- Rapper Lil' Wayne has been accused of failing to pay a $146,000 jewelry bill.

The star is being sued by Jack Sutton Fine Jewelry, who say he failed to pay for a diamond ring and necklace he purchased earlier this month.

They claim Wayne agreed to pay the bill in monthly installments, but after they received the first check for $24,000 on Oct. 12 and a second dated January 2008, the payments were stopped.

Proprietor Jack Sutton says, "I've been doing business with him for at least 10 years. He's always been wonderful with paying me. He spent a lot of money with me. I thought we have a really good relationship. I don't know what happened."

Wayne's attorney says the incident is just a "misunderstanding," and that his client will resolve it because he's very responsible.

This case is just the latest in a series of legal trials for Carter, including drug charges in Atlanta, Ga., gun possession charges in New York and two civil suits in Baltimore, Md.,
