Legal News: Birdman Denies Trying to Take Lil Wayne Out + 50 Cent Gets More Bad News
By: Amanda Anderson-Niles
Recently it was confirmed Birdman and Young Thug have been linked to the recent shooting up of Lil Wayne’s tour bus, and some are suspecting Birdman may have put a hit out on the rapper he used to consider a son.
However, he’s denying he had anything to do with the incident.
Sources close to Wayne and Birdman confirm to TMZ what police docs insinuated … that Birdman got a phone call on April 26, shortly after the bus was shot up in Atlanta. As we reported, police knew the call was placed between 2 phones registered to Birdman.
We’re told the call came from someone in Wayne’s camp who was understandably pissed, and anxious to tell Birdman what went down shortly before the shooting — that Jimmy Carlton Winfrey had been kicked out of a club for harassing Wayne.
Winfrey was eventually arrested and charged with the shooting.
Our sources say Birdman assured Wayne he was not involved in any way, and vowed to help figure out who was behind it.
