Lil Wayne entourage attack photographer’s bike


Lil Wayne

Lil Wayne’s entourage are accused of threatening a photographer and attacking his bike with a skateboard.

According to TMZ, tensions rose when a snapper started photographing Wayne and his posse as they skateboarded outside a church in Miami Beach (reportedly the skating was taking place near a ‘no skateboarding’ sign, which is possibly why the photographer thought these would make great pictures). The pap would have got away with it, but seemingly pushed his luck by following the rapper and his friends when they returned to their car. It was then that Wayne’s eight man entourage started threatening the photographer, forcing him to delete all his images, pushing him to the ground and spitting on him. Then they smashed the snapper’s bike with a skateboard.

According to the gossip site, the photographer promptly reported the incident to the Miami Beach Police Department. Team Wayne are yet to respond to the allegations.
