MIAMI, Fla. – Welcome to today's episode of Heat Said, Weezy said.

During Sunday's Miami Heat win over the L.A. Lakers, rapper Lil Wayne tweeted that he was ejected from American Airlines Arena for cheering for the visiting team.

"So I'm @ da Heat game right, rootin 4 da Lakers kuz dats my team & would u believe they got police 2 make me leave?! Wow!" the rapper tweeted.

He then added an epithet: "[Expletive] da Heat."

That caused quite a reaction on Twitter, as Lil Wayne has nearly 10 million followers. Yet he's not the only one out there with an account of what happened Sunday. A fan named Danny Vega, who said he was near the rapper, had a different version of the incident:

"Random guy yelled at Lil Wayne at #MiamiHEAT game, Weezy looked back, gave him a mean stare & gestured he had a gun," tweeted Vega, who said he was at the game and sitting near Lil Wayne. "Weezy just got into argument with security at the #MiamiHEAT game. He got kicked out for gun gesture."

Heat spokeswoman Lorrie-Ann Diaz told USA Today in an e-mail that Lil Wayne was not kicked out but instead chose to leave.

NBA fans and fans of Lil Wayne will recall a similar disagreement during last year's Western Conference Finals, as the rapper claimed he wasn't allowed entry into Oklahoma City's Chesapeake Energy Arena. A spokesman for the Thunder later said Lil Wayne wasn't allowed into the building because he didn't have a ticket.
