According to news reports, Dwayne Michael Carter, Jr., aka Lil Wayne, was kicked off a private jet that departed from Fort Lauderdale, Florida for allegedly lighting up a joint. Supposedly, Lil Wayne asked the pilot before takeoff if he and his entourage could smoke. The pilot denied the request.
Despite the pilots instruction, it is said that Lil Wayne and the entourage proceeded to light up shortly after takeoff. This infuriated the pilot who immediately turned the plane around and landed back in Fort Lauderdale 17 minutes later.
Lil Wayne denies smoking while the plane was in flight and claims to have been told that the plane returned to the Fort Lauderdale airport due to mechanical issues.
