Lil Wayne Investigated for Incident in 2021
Police investigated the alleged event back in December of 2021. Authorities were reportedly called to Wayne’s Hidden Hills, Calif. home after getting a call from Christian. The bodyguard alleges things got heated between him and Tune and the situation turned physical with Wayne allegedly punching him in the ear and ordering him to leave. When Christian went to the bathroom instead, he claims Wayne pulled out a AR-15 rifle and threatened him, prompting the guard to run out of the house and to the gated community’s guard shack, where he reached out to authorities. Wayne denied the incident happened.
The Louisiana rapper is currently on the heels of releasing his new joint album with 2 Chainz, Welcome 2 Collegrove. He’s currently prepping the release of his highly anticipated new album Tha Carter VI.
