Lil Wayne and NBA basketball arenas just don’t jibe sometimes.
During the Miami Heat’s win over the visiting L.A. Lakers, Weezy was ejected from American Airlines Arena for cheering for the road team … or so he claims.
“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!” the rapper tweeted Sunday.
He then added, “[Expletive] da Heat.”
This fired up his Twitter followers, but much like last spring, when he claimed he was denied entry by the Oklahoma City Thunder, he may be full of it.
A fan named Danny Vega, who said he was near the rapper, had a different version of events, Tweeting: “Random guy yelled at Lil Wayne at #MiamiHEAT game.”
“Weezy looked back, gave him a mean stare & gestured he had a gun. Weezy just got into argument with security … He got kicked out for gun gesture.”
THAT we believe. A Heat spokeswoman told USA Today that Lil Wayne was not ejected or asked to vacate the premises but instead “chose to leave.”
So, there you have it. Three accounts of what went down. Our money’s on Vega’s story, but maybe LeBron James can shed some light on the matter.
