The Lil Wayne feud with the Miami Heat — along with his allegation that he slept with player Chris Bosh’s wife — continued to gain momentum on Tuesday.
Bad blood exploded over the weekend because the hip-hop star claimed during the NBA All-Star Weekend that he’s been banned from all NBA games— thanks to a complaint filed by the Heat.
But league Senior Vice President Tim Frank told Miami Herald Heat writer Joseph Goodman Monday night that was “not true.”
Meanwhile, the more tawdry allegation made by Lil Wayne in his rant against the Heat and the NBA — that he slept with Bosh’s wife, Adrienne Williams — spread on social media and on sports talk radio.
On Tuesday, Williams retweeted positive messages in response to the allegations, including one from Dwyane Wade’s girlfriend, actress Gabrielle Union: “Some people attack those who have the peace & joy they wish they had! Pay them no mind! Live your dream, strut & wave.”
But GlobalGrind.com reports that the petite model and Lil Wayne did know each other a while back from Atlanta’s nightlife scene. Whether they had a physical relationship is unclear.
Lil Wayne, aka Weezy, has been a courtside fixture at Heat home games at AmericanAirlines Arena.
The brouhaha escalated over the weekend in Houston, when Weezy blasted the Heat and its star players from the stage at a birthday celebration for fellow Young Money rapper “Birdman” following the NBA All-Star Weekend. He even persuaded the audience to repeat the F-bomb phrases.
“When I say f---, you say NBA! When I say f---, you say Miami Heat!” he said as he performed in front of a packed house. “F-- LeBron! F--- She Wade! F--- Chris Bosh! F--- all y’all!”
In something reminiscent of Tupac vs. Biggie Beef, Lil Wayne ended his rant by saying, “I f---ed Chris Bosh wife!”
The incident is the latest escalation of Lil Wayne's aggravation with the Heat. The hostility began when the artist felt disrespected because Heat stars Wade and LeBron James did not acknowledge him courtside during a game.
The feud intensified when Lil Wayne claimed he was ejected from the Feb. 10 home game against the Los Angeles Lakers. Weezy said he was kicked out for rooting for the Lakers. There were reports that Lil Wayne made a gun gesture at other fans and even exchanged words with Wade.
After the game, the Heat said Lil Wayne was not ejected, but voluntarily left the game.
