Lil Wayne was beyond pissed the other night, it seems.
Page Six learns the rap legend was supposed to be a special guest at the 50 Cent show in Los Angeles, but she ran away before taking the stage.
We were told he was supposed to join the “In Da Club” star as one of the surprise performers of the night at the Crypto.com Arena on Wednesday night. (The same show where Fiddy hit a pa*serby over the head with a flying mic.)
But insiders say that as Wayne prepared to take the stage, a member of the backstage tour crew appeared to push the ‘Lollipop’ rapper aside — perhaps without realizing who he was. was – which apparently irritated him.
And when it came time for him to join the “Get Rich or Die Tryin'” star on stage, Wayne was nowhere to be found.
“He just came out with a bang,” a behind-the-scenes source said. “He stayed in the building for about 20 minutes in total.”
Luckily, fans in attendance for Fiddy’s “Final Lap” tour got to see him perform with an array of hip hop heavyweights, including Nas, YG, Chris Brown and Tyga. (We hear Tyler the Creator and Saweetie were also present in the crowd.)
Meanwhile, the evening made headlines for another reason after Fiddy – apparently frustrated by a series of faulty microphones – threw one of them, accidentally hitting a radio host in the forehead. It left a nasty cut and the rapper became a suspect in a battery case after reporting it to local cops.
“Let’s be very clear, as I told the LAPD this afternoon, my client Curtis would never intentionally hit anyone with a microphone,” his attorney, Scott Leemon, told Page Six in a statement Thursday.
Representatives for Wayne haven’t responded to us, and a rep for 50 Cent hasn’t responded to us about Wayne’s alleged departure.
