Lil Wayne ejected from basketball game for trying to fight referee

Rapper Lil Wayne was reportedly kicked out of a charity basketball game after starting an altercation with a referee.

The Lollipop hitmaker was sitting courtside at the 4th annual Celebrity Basketball Game at the Chafitz Arena in St. Louis, Missouri on Sunday (31May15), when he grew frustrated over calls the referee was making during the game, according to AllHipHop.com.


In a video from the event, the rapper is seen confronting the referee and later exiting the arena.


It isn't the first time Lil Wayne has got into an altercation at a sporting event - in 2013, he was seen on video cursing at a cameraman at DirecTV's annual Beach Bowl football game.


He also reportedly tried to fight boxer Marcos Maidana after his match with Floyd Mayweather, Jr. in 2014.
