NFL star Dez Bryant has stepped forward to kill rumors and speculation claiming there is a beef between him and Lil Wayne following a physical altercation last weekend in Miami.
Although he did not deny an incident took place, the Dallas Cowboys star said they are not at each other’s necks.
“Let’s quit with the false stories now….me and this man don’t have a problem with one another lol,” he tweeted Thursday (January 19). (Dez Bryant’s Twitter)
Initially described as “famous rapper,” Weezy was identified in the scuffle this week.
Beach police have no incident reports from the fight, but a source tells a Herald reporter that Lil’ Wayne was involved. The fight happened inside the Fontainebleau’s LIV, the station reports, but details are otherwise sketchy about the altercation. Update 2: David Smiley, the Herald’s Miami Beach reporter, Tweets that a MBPD source tells him that Lil’ Wayne and his entourage were the “famous rapper” involved in the Bryant fight.

Additional reporting claimed Weezy struck first by taunting Bryant’s on-field and off-field performances.
Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant was involved in an altercation with rapper Lil Wayne over the weekend. It’s been reported that the altercation occurred at LIV nightclub in Miami, Florida when Wayne began taunting Bryant about his unimpressive performance this season along with his financial and legal issues. A fight broke out from there. Lil Wayne, nor his camp, have provided a statement yet, but Bryant’s mentor, David Wells, stated that the Cowboys WR had not been arrested, despite earlier reports.

The incident took place at the same location Weezy celebrated the Dallas Mavericks NBA Finals win over the Miami Heat.
Someone heckling Cowboys receiver Dez Bryant about his play on the field and his public debt issues prompted the Miami club altercation he was involved in over the weekend. David Wells, Bryant’s adviser, confirmed there was a confrontation involving Bryant at Club Liv, the same club where the Mavericks celebrated their NBA championship nearly seven months ago. “We are aware of media inquiries only and have heard of no documented reports from authorities,” said Rich Dalrymple, the club’s vice president of public relations.
