Report: Memphitz Home Raided Over Alleged Death Threats

Argument with landlord gets out of hand.

Authorities swarmed the West Hollywood, Calif., residence of Mickey “Memphitz” Wright with guns drawn and he wasn’t even there, reports TMZCops showed up this morning after Wright’s landlord called 911 alleging that the former reality star threatened to shoot him during a verbal disagreement.


Wright had already left by the time police arrived. The landlord claims Wright said he would return with a gun, which he denies, though he does admit to arguing.

According to Wright, the landlord has an issue with his loud music and partying. Their argument must’ve been the final straw because Wright plans to move, though it’s unclear if the landlord wants to press charges. 

The former record executive, who was arrested in July on assault and robbery charges for pulling a gun on a car wash employee, is the estranged husband of Toya Wright (a.k.a. Lil Wayne’s ex-wife).
