The stars were out on Monday night to watch the Miami Heat take on the Indiana Pacers during game seven of the NBA’s Eastern Conference Finals. Among the celebrities in the stands at the American Airlines Arena were rapper Flo Rida and his manager; unfortunately, Flo’s manager had his night cut short after being kicked out of the game.
With nearly two minutes left on the clock, Pacers’ player Jeff Pendergraph got into an on court altercation with Heat guard Norris Cole, which led to the two being ejected from the game. But the players weren’t the only two getting the boot.
During the entire ordeal, TNT’s Craig Sager reported that Flo Rida’s manager was also being ejected from the game for talking mess to Pendergraph.
“Well, a lot of conversation going on, a lot of trash talking over here by the Indiana bench,” Sager reported. “It actually was Flo Rida’s manager who was ejected. He and Pendergraph had been going back and forth, it got to be such a distraction that the officials came over and tried to eject him. He wanted to stay put. However, Flo Rida said, ‘You’re my manager, but you’ve got to get out of here now.’”
Shortly after the ejection, Tramar Dillard, Flo Rida’s legal name, was photographed with his arm around an empty chair.
The Miami Heat ended up winning 99-76.
