Lil Wayne Claims He Was Kicked Out of Miami Heat Game, Team Says He’s Lying [Details]

Lil Wayne doesn’t have the best of luck when it comes to sporting events.

It’s partly because the New Orleans rapper believes he has a sense of entitlement. And when things don’t go his way he gets upset. Just weeks after he yelled at a camara man at the Super Bowl celebrity flag football game, Wayne got into it with officials at the Miami Heat-Los Angeles Lakers game Sunday afternoon.

Wayne jumped on Twitter and claimed he was thrown out of the American Airlines Arena for cheering on the Lakers. He tweeted,”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! F#€k da Heat”

However, a witness and the Miami Heat organization had a different story to tell. A fan named Danny Vega, who said he was near the rapper, tweeted: “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 at the #MiamiHEAT game. He got kicked out for gun gesture.

LOL @LilTunechi saying he got kicked out #MiamiHEAT game for being a #lakers  fan. Its cuz he made a gun gesture at someone. Around white ppl.[…] There are  mostly old rich folks & ppl with kids sitting  around him. I think he’s a Kobe fan. But he always cheers for the opposing team  in miami.”

A spokeswoman for the Heat told USA Today that Lil Wayne was not kicked out, but left of his own free will.

This is not the first time that Lil Wayne has been at odds with a NBA team. Weezy jumped on Twitter this past summer after he couldn’t get front row seats to a Oklahoma City Thunder playoff game.

Wayne told the Associated Press, “It’s the players stepping up but of course the players aren’t white. I don’t want to be sitting there on behalf of you and I’m sitting next to a (person) that’s like ‘I don’t want this (guy) sitting next to me.’ (Forget) you … I’m in Forbes.”
