Lil Wayne was thrown out of the Miami Heat game for rooting on the L.A. Lakers….not so fast….while he claims he was thrown out but some have a different story. Another person at the game says a random fan argued with Wayne before the rapper allegedly made a gesture that he had a gun and the security approached him and he left… but he says he was thrown out…they said he left!
Lil Wayne has a song called Troublemaker. Surprisingly, it’s not about his attendance at NBA games.
The rapper left the Miami Heat-Los Angeles Lakers game Sunday afternoon and tweeted he was forced to leave because he was rooting for the Lakers. But Heat spokeswoman Lorrie-Ann Diaz told USA TODAY Sports in an e-mail that Lil Wayne was not kicked out but instead chose to leave.
“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!” Lil Wayne tweeted at 5:01 p.m. ET.
One fan who was at the game said security approached Lil Wayne after he made a gesture.
“Random guy yelled at Lil Wayne at #MiamiHEAT game. Weezy looked back, gave him a mean stare & gestured he had a gun,” tweeted Danny 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.”
Diaz, the Heat spokeswoman, did not respond to a question about whether security approached Lil Wayne before he left.
Lil Wayne cited racism when he was not allowed into a Western Conference finals game last year, but Oklahoma City Thunder spokesman Dan Mahoney said the issue was the rapper didn’t have a ticket to the sold-out game. He then attended an NBA Finals game in Oklahoma City, apparently smoothing over any issues with Thunder staff.
