Lil Wayne is a bit of an NBA courtside jester, mostly due to his goofy outfits and ejection-worthy antics (or self-ejection, depending on who you believe). Also, it’s not entirely clear which team he actually roots for, as he can be found sitting in any number of high profile arenas, although mostly when national TV camera are rolling. But if reports from a source within LeBron’s circle are to be believed, there is one player in particular that Weezy is most definitely a fan of — to the point where it’s become an obsession: According to a member of LeBron’s inner-circle who spoke on the condition of anonymity, Lil Wayne over the years has continuously made efforts into building a relationship with LeBron, similar to what the MVP shares with Jay Z. And this has included invites for concert appearances, birthday parties and video sessions, but LeBron through the years has respectfully declined. “LeBron is extremely busy, he respects Lil Wayne and his peers in the entertainment industry, but he just doesn’t like to be bothered like that,” says the source. There has always been reports of Lil Wayne regarding his self-entitlement issues, and the obsequious flattery that his inner-circle showers him with on a constant basis only adds to his inflated ego. So when LeBron refuses to accept his friendship request, Lil Wayne doesn’t know how to handle rejection and resorts to displaying childish temper tantrums. And that is seemingly the issue Lil Wayne has with LeBron according to the source. Such insecurity is a perfectly reasonable explanation for a post All-Star Game outburst Sunday night, where the diminutive Wayne claimed to have slept with Chris Bosh’s wife, and that he was banned from NBA games (the NBA says that is not true). It also appears to be another attempt by Weezy at maintaining some level of relevancy in South Beach: A lot of it also stems from jealousy, no longer is Lil Wayne the top draw at events in Miami; Club Liv, the trendy hotspot on South Beach held a birthday party for Miami native DJ Khaled last year. A star-studded event that included P.Diddy, Kanye West, Lil Wayne and others. Usually, Lil Wayne holds top billing at Liv, not that night, as LeBron and his entourage of 12 entered the party, all eyes shifted away from the stage Lil Wayne was performing on and towards the 3-time league MVP and his crew. The source did say that LeBron respects the Young Money rapper and has no ill-will towards him. [BlackSportsOnline] Article found on: Cosby Sweaters
