Lil Wayne storms out of 50 Cent show after backstage ‘push’

Lil Wayne was more than a lil’ pissed off the other night, it seems.

Page Six hears the rap legend was supposed to be a special guest at the 50 Cent show in Los Angeles, but stormed out before going on stage.

We’re told he was supposed to join the “In Da Club” star as one of the evening’s surprise performers at the Crypto.com Arena on Wednesday night. (The same show where Fiddy clonked a bystander on the head with a flying mic.)

But insiders say that while Wayne was getting ready to go onstage, a member of the backstage tour staff seemed to push the “Lollipop” rapper out of the way — perhaps not realizing who he was — which apparently irked him.

And when it came time for him to join the “Get Rich or Die Tryin’” star on stage, Wayne was nowhere to be found.

“He just stormed out,” said an backstage source. “He was in the building for about 20 minutes total.”

Fortunately, fans there for Fiddy’s “Final Lap” tour got to see him perform with an array of hip hop heavyweights including Nas, YG, Chris Brown and Tyga. (We hear Tyler the Creator and Saweetie were there in the crowd, as well.)

Meanwhile, the evening made headlines for another reason after Fiddy — apparently frustrated by a string of faulty microphones — hurled one of them, accidentally hitting a radio host on the forehead. It left a nasty cut, and the rapper became a suspect in a battery case after she reported it to the local cops.

“Let’s be very clear, as I told LAPD this afternoon, my client Curtis would never intentionally strike anyone with a microphone,” his attorney, Scott Leemon, told Page Six in a statement Thursday.

Reps for Wayne didn’t get back to us, and a rep for 50 Cent didn’t get back to us about Wayne’s alleged exit.
