Prison Guard Fired For Spying On Lil Wayne

April 29, 2010

A guard at New York's Rikers Island jail is threatening to sue the prison after she was fired for allegedly spying on Lil Wayne. Who in the hell would want to do that?

Amelia Negron was sacked last month after she was accused of wandering into the unit where Wayne was being held without proper authorization. Negron does admit that she went into the unit, but says it was to speak to a colleague, not to spy on Lil Wayne.

"I don't even like rap,” she told the New York Daily News. “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.” She added: "(I) did nothing wrong, but (I was) threatened with criminal charges, transfers, suspensions."

A spokesman for the Correction Department claims Negron's dismissal was "entirely appropriate."
