Lil Wayne Kicked Out of Miami Heat Game?

Lil Wayne says NBA team gave him the boot for rooting for the Los Angeles Lakers.

Fans of Lil Wayne will likely recall an incident during last year’s NBA playoffs when the Young Money CEO was denied entry into the Oklahoma City Thunder’s arena. The rapper, who’s an avid fan of NBA games, made it into the Miami Heat’s arena yesterday to catch them play the Los Angeles Lakers, but he didn’t end up staying long for the second half.

According to Tunechi, his early departure from the basketball game was not voluntary. In a tweet last night the MC wrote, "So I’m @ da Heat game right, rootin 4 da Lakers kuz dats my team & would you believe they got police 2 make me leave? Wow! F#€k da Heat."

According to TMZ, the Heat are denying Wayne’s claim that he was forcibly removed from Miami’s American Airlines Arena. A rep for the team stated, "In response to your inquiry, please note that Lil Wayne was not ejected from the building. He chose to leave."

A fan in attendance at the game however has a different account of why Weezy was ejected from the building. According to the fan named Danny Vega, the incident occurred as follows:

"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."

This incident adds to the weird history Weezy has with the Heat and its players. In a 2011 Rolling Stone article, the rapper blasted Heat stars LeBron James and Dwyane Wade.

"Them n----s never speak to a n---a," Lil Wayne said. "They don’t chunk me the deuce or nothing. N---a spent all that money on them f-----g tickets…Come holla at me. We sit right by them little b---h a-- n----s. At least come ask me why I’m not rooting for you."

Oh, by the way, the Heat beat the Lakers 107-97.
