Lil Wayne investigated for allegedly assaulting club bouncer

The altercation is said to have happened at Weezy's BET Awards after-party

Lil Wayne is being investigated for allegedly assaulting a nightclub bouncer.

The rapper is said to have repeatedly punched a member of door staff at LA’s Hyde Club, where he was holding a BET Awards after-party.

According to TMZ, the altercation occurred when a member of Wayne’s entourage was turned away from the party he was co-hostin with 2 Chainz.

The bouncer in question reportedly had to be taken to hospital, with witnesses saying Wayne punched him in the face after an argument.

The rapper’s people deny this happened, saying the bouncer had mistakenly grabbed Wayne’s arm, but had apologised and worked in the group’s VIP section for the whole night.
