Lil Wayne: ‘I keep two pet sharks’

Rapper also explains why he quit Twitter

Lil Wayne has revealed that he keeps two pet sharks at his home in Miami.

The rapper, who is about to release his ninth studio album ‘Tha Carter IV’, was grilled by Paris Hilton in Interview Magazine and told her of his unusual pets.

Asked by Hilton if he had any pets, Wayne replied: “I have a bunch of fish and two sharks. One is a little baby, about a foot or two big. The other is a good two, two and feet.”

He did not reveal what breed of sharks they were, however.

The rapper also explained he’d left Twitter after his account was hacked not once, but twice.

He said: “I just shut my Twitter account down because I got hacked. Once I got hacked I had Twitter fix it. They changed it. And then it got hacked again so I just shut it down. As of right now, I’m on Twitter strike.”

‘Tha Carter IV’ is released on May 16.
