Lil Wayne has been accused of brandishing a gun during a recent dispute with one of his bodyguards.
Los Angeles County Sheriff’s deputies responded to a home in Hidden Hills, California last Wednesday (December 1) around 1:40 a.m. after receiving a report of an assault with a deadly weapon.
The sheriff’s department said:
When they arrived, a male Hispanic adult working as a security guard stated he had a verbal altercation that turned physical, with a male Black adult resident.
The security guard also stated the resident brandished a firearm during the altercation.
Deputies attempted to make contact with the resident, however, he was no longer at the residence.
TMZ is reporting the security guard claimed Lil Wayne took out an assault rifle after accusing him of snapping and leaking photos.
An investigation is still underway.
You may recall, Weezy was facing federal gun charges in 2020 after federal authorities searched his private plane and discovered a gold-plated pistol, bullets, marijuana, heroin, pain killers, prescription-strength cough syrup, suspected cocaine, and $25,938 in cash.
Lil Wayne told the authorities the gun was a Father’s Day gift.
He ultimately pleaded guilty as part of a plea deal and ended up posing in a photo with Donald Trump, who granted him clemency before leaving office.
