Lil Wayne to Launch Sports Agency with Cristiano Ronaldo as First Client

Lil Wayne and Cristiano Ronaldo

Lil Wayne is making a big business move. The Young Money mogul is reportedly starting his own sports management agency and has signed up soccer stud Cristiano Ronaldo as his first client.



According to TMZ, Weezy, who is a huge sports fanatic, has been wanting to get into sports management and is friends with the Team Portugal player.


Wayne has partnered with Polaris Sports, which is affiliated with CAA and GestiFute, the company where Ronaldo’s agent Jorge Mendes works.


Wayne’s company will handle Ronaldo’s sports management affairs in the U.S. including marketing, endorsement deals, and even modeling.


Earlier today, Ronaldo tweeted a photo of himself with the Prime Minister of Japan holding up the Young Money sign.


“My homie Christiano Ronaldo got the President of Japan throwing up Young money! He too real 4dat! Young Muulah baby!” tweeted Wayne.


He won’t be the first rap mogul to venture into the world of sports. In 2013, Jay Z teamed up with CAA to launch Roc Nation Sports, which is home to Kevin Durant, CC Sabathia, Skylar Diggins, and Victor Cruz.

French Montana and Khloe Kardashian Open Up About Their Relationship

Khloe Kardashian and French Montana

After scoring an interview with Remy Ma earlier in the week, Angie Martinez sat down with French Montana on Power 105.1 on Thursday. The “Pop That” rapper, who’s become a regular on TMZ, spoke out for the first time about his relationship with girlfriend Khloe Kardashian.



He revealed that his mentor Diddy was the one who introduced him to Kim’s younger sister. “Khloe cool as hell, man. It was Puff. Puff was the one that put us together,” said a nervous French.


Khloe’s family has embraced him. “Me and Kris Jenner best friends. We drink together,” he said of Khloe’s mother.


His girl even stopped by to visit to her man, and address the critics. “People are going to comment no matter what, like if I dated the most clean-cut, perfect guy, they’re gonna comment. That’s just the way it is,” said Khloe. “So if I’m having fun and if I like this kid, no one else should care. They’re not fuckin’ him, so why do they care?”


When asked what she likes most about her boo, she cited his sense of humor. “He is probably one of the funniest people I’ve ever met in my life. You cannot stop laughing, like crying laughing.”


While he may have a reputation for being a bad boy, there are other sides to him. “I think he also puts out there more of the tough exterior and that’s who he is, but there’s also a different side of him, which he keeps more private as he should. Not everyone should see that side of him, but he could be a softie sometimes.”


French has been refraining from alcohol and sex because of Ramadan, which Khloe says has been “so fun… That’s why he’s wearing all white. He’s so pure and holy right now. He’s virginal.”


He also dished about his new music. He is getting ready to release a new single called “Don’t Panic” and revealed that Kanye West might executive produce his album Mac & Cheese 4. He and ‘Ye did five or six tracks together including one called “Gucci Mane” featuring Rick Ross and Lil Wayne.


Plus, hear him speak about Kanye’s new single “All Day (“It’s so epic”) and his plans to pursue acting.
