As Lil Wayne's beef with the Miami Heat continues to play out, a member of LeBron James' inner circle is now claiming that Lil Wayne has made an attempt to build a relationship with LeBron, but the Heat champ respectfully declined. The person, who anonymously spoke to, revealed that Lil Wayne continuously sent invites for concert appearances, birthday parties and video sessions to no avail.

"LeBron is extremely busy, he respects Lil Wayne and his peers in the entertainment industry, but he just doesn't like to be bothered like that"

The source added that Wayne has an "unhealthy obsession," but LeBron still respects Wayne and has no ill-will towards him. Since LeBron is now a global brand, he doesn't want to associate himself with a controversial rapper such as Wayne, according to the source.
