Lil Wayne claims the Heat kicked him out of a game; Heat claims he chose to leave

Monday February 11th, 2013

At 5:01 p.m. ET on Sunday evening, Lil Wayne tweeted that he had been kicked out of the Heat game, claiming the police made him leave because he was rooting for the Lakers.

"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!"

However, Heat spokeswoman Lorrie-Ann Diaz told USA TODAY Sports via e-mail that Lil Wayne was not kicked out, but chose to leave.

One fan at the game who was seated near the rapper tweeted that "Random guy yelled at Lil Wayne at #MiamiHeat game. Weezy looked back, gave him a mean stare & gestured he had a gun." After that, Lil Wayne was kicked out for the gun gesture.
