Lil Wayne recently made headlines for his negative comments about a number of Miami Heat players, but now he is thinking twice about his statements.
The 30-year-old rapper born Dewayne Carter fired off about Heat players Lebron James, Chris Bosh and Dwyane Wade at a recent birthday celebration for his friend and Cash Money record label CEO Bryan "Birdman" Williams. However, Carter recently called 99 JAMZ radio station in Miami to apologize for his initial statements about Heat forward James.
"That's my homie, and it just slipped out," the rapper admitted. "I ain't mean to say that."
Although Carter seemed to regret his statement about James, the rapper stood by his claims about Wade and Bosh's wife, Adrienne. Entertainment writer Karen Civil reportedly attended the Williams' party and tweeted about Wayne's rant during NBA All-Star weekend.
"(Expletive) the heat, (expletive) Lebron, (expletive) shewayde [sic] and I (expletive) Chris Bosh wife," Wayne said, according to Civil's tweets.
The rapper told 99 JAMZ that he and Wade had a falling out during a recent Heat game against the Los Angeles Lakers where he cheered for the California-based basketball team.
"We don't (expletive) with you," Wade told the rapper, according to Carter's retelling on the radio station.
After the game that took place earlier this month, the rapper took to his Twitter last week to make a claim that he was asked to leave the Heat's American Airlines Arena in Miami after he decided to root 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," Carter tweeted to nearly 10 million followers on the social networking website.
However Lorrie-Ann Diaz, a Heat representative, insisted that Wayne left the Heat game on his own in an email to USA Today. Carter explained the situation to the Miami radio station recently where he admitted to leaving on his own accord after sources told him that security would remove him if he continued to stand up during the game.
