Did An Ex-Riker’s Guard Get Fired For Trying To See Lil Wayne?

Ex-Rikers Guard Fired For Trying To See Lil Wayne

A former Rikers guard says she was canned after a bad rap – a claim she tried to sneak a peek at Lil Wayne in lockup.

Amelia Negron, who is preparing a federal suit against the city, said union higherups forced her to falsely confess she was trying to star-gawk.

“I don’t even like rap,” said Negron, 33.

“I like rock and alternative music and didn’t know much about him when they said I tried to see him. None of it’s true.”

What really happened March 10 is that she popped her head into the unit where the performer was being held to see a colleague, Negron said.

“The door to the area was unlocked, and so I went in to say hello, and that officer said, ‘Hey, you can’t be here. We’ve got a celeb here.’ I said, ‘Okay, no problem,’ turned around and left,” Negron said.

She said that, after the short exchange, her superiors claimed she was trying to cozy up to Weezy.

“We did nothing wrong, but we were threatened with criminal charges, transfers, suspensions,” she said.

So Lil Wayne Does Have A Job In Prison…

So Lil Wayne Does Have A Job In Prison

After the story about Lil Wayne having a job at Riker’s Island to watch over suicidal inmates turned out to be bullshit (says Toya), VIBE got some info from a correctional officer who works at Riker’s, and it turns out that the story was true after all. Check out what the source said below:

Turns out he is working as a Suicide Prevention Aide patrolling the suicidal inmates in his unit. According to a Riker’s corrections insider there are three SPAs for each unit in the Eric M. Taylor Center where Wayne resides.

“He works the midnight shift in his unit,” says the source. “He starts at 11pm and ends at 7am.”

According the source, Wayne took a test for the position that is one of the better jobs offered. “The other inmates clean, work in the pantry, they all have some kind of job but his allows him to be alone.”

As for how Weezy is holding up: “He’s a perfect gentleman,” says the source. “He’s respectful, he keeps to himself. He doesn’t want any trouble. He wants to do his time and get the fuck out.”

I’m really not sure what to think about this… someone like Mack Maine needs to come out and say if this ‘supposed’ job that Wayne has is true or not. What do you all believe ❓
