Flo Rida’s Manager Banned from Games 6 & 7 of the NBA Finals
Rapper Flo Rida and his manager, Freezy, will not attend game 6 or 7 of the NBA Finals at the American Airlines Arena in Miami. That’s because the NBA front office has banned Flo Rida’s manager for behaving a bit too ghetto during the games.
Flo Rida, who has been a fixture at court side during the playoffs, will not be in his pricey court side seat tonight for game 6 of the matchup between defending champions Miami heat and the San Antonio Spurs.
“We ride together,” said Freezy, whose real name is Lee Prince. Flo Rida flew to Las Vegas after hearing about his manager’s banishment. He will watch game 6 there, his manager says.
Freezy, who is still in Miami, told the Miami Herald that NBA attorneys warned him he will be arrested if he showed up at the arena tonight.
“This is an act of discrimination,” he told the Herald. “I am not an outside celebrity. I am a local fan and I’m gonna get emotional watching my team play,” Freezy said.
Miami police officers escorted Freezy from game 7 of the Eastern Conference series between the Heat and the Indiana Pacers after he threatened to see one of Indiana’s players outside after the game. Miami won that series in 7 games. They will also defend their NBA title in 7 games.
