Lil Wayne is back beefing with yet another NBA franchise. Today, the YMCMB rapper claims that he was kicked out of the Los Angeles Lakers vs. Miami Heat game in Miami. However, the Miami Heat say he voluntarily bounced while a witness say it’s because the rapper threatened a fan.
During today’s game, Tunechi tweeted that he was getting booted from the American Airlines Arena because he was rooting for Kobe Bryant’s squad. “So I’m @ da Heat game right, rootin 4 da Lakers kuz dats my team & would u believe they got police 2 make me leave?! Wow! F#€k da Heat,” tweeted the “No Worries” rapper.
However, a witness and the Miami Heat organization have a different account. Yahoo! Sports reports:
A fan named Danny Vega, who said he was near the rapper, had a different version of the incident:
“Random guy yelled at Lil Wayne at #MiamiHEAT game, Weezy looked back, gave him a mean stare & gestured he had a gun,” tweeted Vega, who said he was at the game and sitting near Lil Wayne. “Weezy just got into argument with security at the #MiamiHEAT game. He got kicked out for gun gesture.”
Heat spokeswoman Lorrie-Ann Diaz told USA Today in an e-mail that Lil Wayne was not kicked out but instead chose to leave.
Last year, Weezy made news when he hurled shots at the Oklahoma City Thunder for not granting him front row seats, going as far as saying that he felt “unwanted” at playoff game versus the San Antonio Spurs in June.
Expect more finger pointing to come out of this situation in the next few days. Let us know who you think is at fault in the comments. Oh yeah, Miami won the game.
