Leave to Lil' Wayne to upstage the on court drama yesterday between the Miami Heat and Los Angeles Lakers. The rapper was sitting courtside of the big game, until he wasn't. No one's really sure what happened. Weezy said he was forced out by Heat security. The Heat organization said he left on his own court.

Wayne's sports allegiances change more often than his skinny jeans. Remember the days when he used to sit courtside with a Dwyane Wade Band-Aid on his face? Well, he showed up at the AAA yesterday ready to root for the Lakers, because, apparently the rapper who has no major Los Angeles connections has now decided that's his team. Things didn't go well for him.

Though Danny Vega, identified on Twitter as DJ Irie's "social media manager," had a different take.

Though Heat spokeswoman Lorrie-Ann Diaz has yet another angle. She tells USA Today he wasn't kicked out at all, but was asked to leave.

This is just the latest bizarre moment between the Heat and Wayne. He seemed to jump on the Heat-hate bandwagon shortly after LeBron James came to town, and famously partied at LIV in 2011 with the Dallas Mavericks after they beat the Heat in the Finals.

As for LeBron's final word on the matter: "Whatever."
