Lil Wayne: I Was Kicked Out of Miami Heat Game Because I Rooted For L.A. Lakers


By Daniel Gates


Lil Wayne says he was thrown out of Sunday’s LakersHeat NBA game in Miami for rooting against the home team — but the Heat dispute the claim.

The rapper was in attendance to see some of the Heat’s 107-97 victory over the Lakers — but departed early, tweeting that he’d been forced to leave because of his allegiances.

“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?!” wrote Weezy. “Wow! F#CK da Heat.” Except a Heat spokesperson tells USA Today that Wayne chose to leave — and was not thrown out of the venue, although he would not comment on whether security personnel approached the recording artist at any point.

Meanwhile, a fan named Danny Vega is alleging that the rapper was removed for making violent gestures at another spectator who screamed at him. “Random guy yelled at Lil Wayne at #MiamiHEAT game,” tweeted Vega. “Weezy looked back, gave him a mean stare & gestured he had a gun. LOL what a douche.”

Vega said the “gun gesture” led to the star’s removal — a third different version of events, none of which has been confirmed. The only thing that’s clear is that Lil Wayne had a less than wonderful game day in Miami.
