Lil Wayne dropped out of performing alongside 50 Cent after a member of his staff pushed him backstage, report says

  • Lil Wayne pulled out of performing with 50 Cent in Los Angeles on Wednesday, according to Page Six.

  • The outlet said Wayne dropped out after a member of 50's touring staff pushed him.

  • At the same show, 50 appeared to hit a concertgoer with a microphone he threw.

50 Cent had a show to forget in Los Angeles on Wednesday.

Not only did the rapper appear to strike a concertgoer with a microphone he threw, but he also missed out on a very special guest performance, say reports.

According to Page Six, 50 was supposed to be joined on stage at the Arena by Lil Wayne, but the "Lollipop" star pulled the plug at the last minute after he got into an altercation with 50's staff.

Page Six said insiders reported that while Wayne was getting ready to go onstage, a member of the backstage tour staff seemed to "push" him out of the way.

Wayne was irked by the interaction and left without performing, according to Page Six.

"He just stormed out," Page Six said a backstage source told it. "He was in the building for about 20 minutes total."

Representatives for 50 Cent and Lil Wayne did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Despite Lil Wayne's no-show, 50 was joined onstage by several other stars, including Nas, YG, and Chris Brown, according to XXL.

However, it was an incident involving a microphone for which the show made headlines.

Videos circulated on social media showed 50 hurling what appeared to be a defective microphone at a group of people to the side of the stage.


TMZ reported Thursday that the microphone struck Power 106 radio host Bryhana Monegain.

In photos obtained by the outlet, Monegain could be seen with a nasty cut on the center of her forehead.

Videos shared by TMZ also show Monegain being taken to hospital in an ambulance and in hospital, with her head wrapped in bandages.

According to TMZ, Monegain filed a police report citing criminal felony battery on Wednesday night.

The Los Angeles Police Department did not respond to a request for comment.

50's lawyer appeared to confirm to TMZ on Thursday that the rapper had thrown the microphone but denied that he intended to injure anyone.

"Let's be very clear, as I told LAPD this afternoon, my client Curtis (AKA 50 Cent) would never intentionally strike anyone with a microphone," Scott Leemon told the outlet. "Anyone saying something different doesn't have all the facts and is misinformed."
