Confusion surrounds Lil Wayne's involvement with Real Madrid footballer Cristiano Ronaldo
Rapper maintains that he will represent player in the US, despite denial from Ronaldo
It was reported last week (July 25) that Lil Wayne will represent the Real Madrid and Portugal player through his newly created sports management company.
However, this was denied by Ronaldo earlier this week with a tweet from his official Twitter account stating that: "There have been news about changes on my management team – it's all false, and I can assure the team is – and will be – the same."
Despite the denial, a representative for Lil Wayne and his Young Money label told TMZ that Ronaldo's tweet is only partially true: "No one is getting fired. He's just adding Young Money to handle branding, marketing and other sports management issues in the United States."
There have been news about changes on my management team - it's all false, and I can assure the team is - and will be - the same.— Cristiano Ronaldo (@Cristiano) July 26, 2014
