The four-time Grammy Award winning rapper left the Heat-Lakers game after tweeting that he had been forced to leave for rooting for the Lakers.
But, according to the Associated Press, Lil Wayne left on his own merit.
Heat spokeswoman Lorrie-Ann Diaz also confirmed this when she told USA Today in an e-mail that Lil Wayne was not kicked out but instead chose to leave.
So while there are conflicting reports on why Wayne left the game, as in many “he said, she said” cases, there is always an intermediary with an unbiased, detailed account of what happened. That would be one Danny Vega, who claims to have the scoop, and that Heat security approached Lil Wayne after he made a gun gesture towards another fan.
While footage of this specific gesture has not been released, Vega, a Miami resident and social-media manager for DJ Irie, vouches that he stands and works right where he (Wayne) sits every game. He later tweeted that he did not have his phone on him to record the incident, but believes they will find footage soon enough.
Surprisingly (?), this is not the first incident Lil Wayne has been in at an NBA game. Wayne was involved in a similar disagreement during last year’s Western Conference Finals, when the rapper claimed he wasn’t allowed entry into Oklahoma City’s Chesapeake Energy Arena, citing racism as the cause. A spokesman for the Thunder later said Lil Wayne wasn’t allowed into the building because he didn’t have a ticket.
