*Lil Wayne is back in the headlines. This time it’s because he’s just been hit with a federal weapons charge and is now facing some serious prison time if convicted.

The news site reports that the U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of Florida slapped the rapper with 1 count of possession of a firearm and ammunition by a convicted felon. The charge stems from a December 2019 incident where federal agents searched Wayne’s plane at Miami-Opa Locka Executive Airport. At the time, the rapper was a passenger on that plane, which made a stop in Florida on its way to California. While Wayne’s attorney, Howard Srebnick, said his client was “cleared” to leave even though guns and drugs were reportedly found on the plane, it appears now the feds believe Wayne was wrongfully in possession of a weapon and ammunition, TMZ reports.

In a new statement to TMZ, Srebnick tells the news site that Wayne was charged for possessing a gold-plated handgun in his luggage back in December but “there is no allegation that he ever fired it, brandished it, used it or threatened to use it. There is no allegation that he is a dangerous person.” As he continued to talk about Wayne, who was convicted of a felony gun charge in NY back in 2009, Srebnick said “The charge is that because he was convicted of a felony in the past, he is prohibited from possessing a firearm.”

*It looks like the marriage is over between Malik Beasley and Montana Yao. 

Sources tell E! News that Yao filed for divorce shortly after the NBA star was spotted in Miami with Larsa Pippen.

We previously reported… Yao says she was “blindsided” after seeing photos online of the Minnesota Timberwolves guard holding hands with Scottie Pippen’s estranged wife.

A source close to Yao told TMZ Sports that Beasley was getting cozy with Larsa while his wife was waiting for him to return to their home in Minnesota to celebrate his 24th birthday on November 26. 

Larsa is 46 and Beasley is 24. She is still married to Scottie.

Yao shares a child with Beasley.

“Montana filed for a divorce the day she saw the photos,” the source told E! News. “Montana never cheated, and it’s not in her character. She’s not dating anybody. She’s a family person. She’s focusing on taking care of her son with her parents. They are quarantining together. Her son is her first priority.”

A source has told Hollywood Unlocked that Beasley had been separated from Yao for months. 

The source claims Pippen was “fully aware” that Beasley was married, but separated from his wife. 

“She thought Malik was in the process of ending his marriage and she wasn’t doing anything wrong by hanging out with him,” the source said. “Larsa and Malik are still in touch and are planning to see each other again when the news blows over.”

Last month, Pippen made headlines for revealing she was dating another NBA baller, Tristan Thompson, before she introduced him to Khloé Kardashian.

Meanwhile, Beasley reportedly once fought ex-NFL player Su’a Cravens in a hotel lobby over Montana Yao.
