This is the latest development as reported by the Miami Herald on June 18. Freezy, whose real name is Lee Prince, said he has been banned by the NBA from attending the next two games at American Airlines Arena after San Antonio Spurs coach Gregg Popovich called him a distraction.
"We ride together."
"They were sending me emails all week and kind threats but I was ignoring them. Then I got emails and phone calls from their lawyers telling me I'm not allowed in the building for the next two games. So I'm like, 'What violation did I (commit)?"
"This is an act of discrimination.
"I am not an outside celebrity. I am a local fan and I'm gonna get emotional watching my team play."
According to the New York Post, this isn't the first time Freezy has caused a stir at Heat games. In Game 7 against the Indiana Pacers in the Eastern Conference Finals, Flo Rida asked him to leave after he got in an altercation and apparently hit a fan towards the end of the game.
Fox Sports' Sam Gardner notes Floa Rida's usual seat at Heat games is next to Phyllis Katz, the 70-year-old wife of team minority owner Raanan Katz.
Audios of Freezy's statements can be listened to here.
