Lil Wayne has been named by multiple media sources to back Floyd Mayweather in his May 2 fight with Manny Pacquiao in Las Vegas. Although there is a good chance that we will see Lil Wayne on camera at the fight, he is also playing a show before and after in Las Vegas. Will Lil Wayne have any time to spend with Christina Milian — who is also nearby?
Advertised on Twitter, Lil Wayne will be playing after the Mayweather/Pacquiao fight at the Foxtail Pool Club. The tickets page lists prices from $165 to $14,000. General admission still has less than 30 tickets left with only a few hours until the fight. DJ Mark Da Spot is also listed on the playbill.

A couple of hours before the Manny Pacquiao and Floyd Mayweather fight, Foxtail Pool Club posted a video of Lil Wayne on their Instagram account. In the picture, Lil Wayne is shown on stage with Mase and Diddy.
The L.A. Times clarifies by saying, “All week, taxis, buses and billboards along the strip hawked ‘Fight Weekend’ concerts and drink specials. The casinos trumpeted various parties hosted by hip-hop stars like Puff Daddy, Snoop Dogg, Lil Wayne and Jay-Z and even pop star Justin Bieber. Everybody, it seems, wanted in on the action.”
The BBC stated that fans are paying as much as $100,000 for ring-side seats. They also state what has become obvious — which is that the “pre-fight hype for this one is unprecedented” and that it is “expected to break all pay-per-view records.” About famous fans of the fight, the BBC states, “Justin Bieber… 50 Cent and Lil Wayne are also big Mayweather fans.”
Seeing Lil Wayne alive and well in Las Vegas is good news for fans considering he was shot at only a week before. While playing a club date in Atlanta, Lil Wayne’s tour bus was attacked by gunfire. Police are still investigating the situation and the Buckhead Patch states on May 2 that they still have not arrested any suspects in the case.
As for fans that are looking for more of Christina Milian in Lil Wayne’s life, the good news is that she has been in Las Vegas all weekend. As previously reported by the Inquisitr, Christina Milian is hosting a party for her shoe line, We Are Pop Culture, in Las Vegas. Naturally, we can hope to see more photos and social media updates from Lil Wayne and Christina Milian in the near future — as well as performance video updates by Lil Wayne.
