Lil Wayne Rumors
Chris Paul’s friends and family are doing it BIG for his belated SURPRISE 30th birthday bash Saturday night … flying in Lil Wayne from Haiti to perform for a bunch of his closest friends … TMZ Sports has learned. Paul’s birthday was actually in May … but we’re told Paul’s family pushed off the celebration because he wanted to wait until after the NBA playoffs were over.
Before he was released from Los Angeles’ Cedars-Sinai Hospital in Los Angeles, Lil Wayne got a visit from an NBA player who regards the rap star as a “big brother.” “I just went to make sure my friend was good,” the Los Angeles Clippers’ Chris Paul told Yahoo! Sports on Tuesday after the team’s a shootaround at Sleep Train Arena. “I don’t really want to talk about what is going on [with Wayne’s medical condition]. But as a friend, I just wanted to make sure he was OK.” Wayne was released Monday after being hospitalized for nearly a week, according to a tweet from rapper Mack Maine. The Associated Press reported that the Grammy award winner was hospitalized for a seizure. Paul was among several celebrities, including rappers Drake, Nicki Minaj and Birdman, who visited Wayne.
“I listen to his music. He’s my favorite,” Paul said. “There are a lot of parallels with sports and stuff like that and his work ethic. He is unbelievable.” The bond hasn’t kept Weezy from rooting against Paul when the Clippers play Wayne’s beloved Los Angeles Lakers. The Clippers are 3-0 against the Lakers this season, something Paul hasn’t been shy about telling his buddy. “When I always beat the Lakers he is the first person I call,” Paul said. Yeah, seriously.”
Lil Wayne had no shortage of famous visitors last night — Los Angeles Clippers guard Chris Paul and his wife Jada stopped by Cedars-Sinai to see how the famous rapper was doing. Cameras also caught Drake, Weezy’s protégé, visiting Wayne last night as well. As TMZ first reported, Wayne was hospitalized twice this week for seizures. His situation was dire last night, but his condition eventually stabilized. According to our sources, Wayne went on a Sizzurp binge between his hospital visits and doctors had to pump his stomach three time to flush the drugs from his system.
Lil’ Wayne has beef with the Miami Heat. Why? Well, he told an audience in Miami Houston last night it was because he “f—– Chris Bosh wife.” Bosh got engaged to Adrienne Williams in 2010; the couple welcomed a young child into this cruel world last year. Lil’ Wayne – who was kicked out of a Heat-Lakers game recently – apparently hates LeBron and “She Wade,” too. Could it all really stem from this alleged incident with Chris Bosh’s wife?
