Tameka “Tiny” Harris explained how frantic she and Lil Wayne’s inner circle became last week when TMZ reported that the rapper was on his deathbed.
When Tiny first heard the news, she shared it with hubby T.I., and they reached out to Birdman for confirmation. The Cash Money rapper attempted to reassure them that Weezy was okay, but Tiny called Wayne’s ex-wife and her good friend, Toya Wright, for more clarity.
Though Toya was initially confident in her information that Wayne was doing fine, Tiny updated her on the latest dire reports about Weezy’s health, and Toya decided to double check her sources.
“She didn’t even know what TMZ was saying at the time. When I told her, she was like, ‘Let me make some phone calls.’ So, she reached out to Wayne, and she called me back. She was like, ‘Girl, he in there watching the game. He cool,’” Tiny recounted to HipHollywood.com.
After confirming that he was recovering, Toya and T.I. took to Twitter to blast the news outlet and vent their frustrations.
“Just holla’d @my Lil bruh Tunechi…& he skraight! TMZ some f-$%X#k-niggaz for reporting that hoe-a$s-s#@$%it!!! That man daughter is like mines. That $&*!t surely got his mama hurtin,his kids hurtin,” Tip wrote via Twitter.
Despite conflicting reports, TMZ never retracted its story, but Tiny doesn’t think anyone will be taking legal action.
“He’s just happy to be feeling better,” said Tiny. “He’s an awesome person. He’s an awesome performer, and I knew he was sick before. So, it was kind of scary.”
