Rapper Boosie Badazz is reportedly consulting with medical specialists who saved Wendy Williams' leg after she reportedly cut her foot and the wound was slow to heal.

Boosie, who was shot by gang members after attending a vigil for rapper Mo3 in Dallas, took to social media on Friday to plead for help raising funds to consult with a specialist.

Boosie, real name Torrence Hatch Jr., told his followers he is "not doing that good," and he doesn't have much time to find a specialist before he loses that leg.

Boosie said he needs a ton of money from his fans to pay for a "specialist doctor" who works on "fixing body parts, that cost hundreds of thousands."

Sources say Wendy, 56, had a scare last summer when she cut her foot but she didn't realize it due to lack of sensation in her feet. Doctors allegedly gave her antibiotics to save her leg.

She was pictured leaving an emergency room in Manhattan earlier this year. A source says she carefully examines the soles of her feet daily.

Surgeons have saved rapper Boosie Badazz's foot from amputation after the Louisiana rapper was shot in the leg in a Dallas, Texas parking lot on Nov. 14.

The rap star is already back home in the Atlanta area recovering after multiple surgeries to save his foot.

Sources tell TMZ bullet fragments were removed and surgeons added screws to stabilize the bones while the leg heals.

The 38 year old and his entourage were fired upon in the parking lot of Big T's Plaza shopping mall, after paying his respects to his artist, the late rapper Mo3, who was shot and killed on a Dallas freeway days before.

Boosie was sitting in a Mercedes-Benz Sprinter van before the shooting at the mall and, after shooters opened fire on the vehicle, the musician was struck below the knee.

His manager denied reports that surgeons were prepping to take the "Wipe Me Down" rapper's foot.

So far, no suspects have been arrested in the case.

Boosie Badazz's manager has denied reports that the Louisiana rapper is undergoing surgery to amputate one of his feet after he was shot in the lower leg in Dallas, Texas.

Boosie's manager took to Instagram on Thursday to deny reports by posting a screenshot of a blog headline with the words: "Fake News"

A gunshot wound to the leg usually doesn't require a week in the hospital -- unless there are serious complications such as blood clots, pulmonary emboli, or diminished tissue perfusion causing tissue death.

Boosie, 38, has a history of type 1 diabetes which requires daily insulin injections to maintain normal blood sugar levels.

People who are diagnosed with type 1 diabetes are at higher risk for amputation because of a condition called peripheral artery disease, which narrows the arteries and lowers oxygenated blood perfusion to the arms and legs.

Another complication of a gunshot wound to the leg is pulmonary emboli caused by fragmented bone in the leg traveling through the veins to the lungs. A pulmonary embolism is potentially fatal.

Earlier this week Boosie posted an update to his Instagram assuring fans that he was well.

"I'm good. Appreciate all the happy birthday wishes and get well soon wishes."

After months of blaming white cops for killing Black men with impunity, rapper Tip "T.I." Harris agrees that rappers are more likely to be killed by other rappers.

Aspiring New York rapper Fivio Foreign tweeted about the rash of shootings that has taken the lives of several underground rappers including King Von, Mo3 and Dr. Rose, who were all shot to death in a 2 week span.

"Rappers are da most targeted people on planet earth. Target by police, by otha Rappers, by Media, By civilians & everybody else dat feel like we shouldnt have all da things we have!" Fivio tweeted.

T.I. shared the post on Instagram, and captioned it with the emojis for "No cap," meaning no lies.

Louisiana rapper Boosie Badazz, 38, nearly lost his life when he was shot after attending a vigil for his artist Mo3, rap name Melvin Noble, 28, who was killed on a Dallas freeway on Nov. 11.

In a recent interview, Boosie shared his opinion that rapping is dangerous work.

"We got the [most] dangerous job as rappers. Nobody has a more dangerous job."

Lil Boosie is reportedly scheduled to have one of his feet amputated due to massive blood loss after suffering a gunshot wound to the leg.

Boosie, real name Torrence Hatch Jr., was shot while sitting in a Sprinter van in a parking lot last week in Dallas, Texas.

The Louisiana rapper was in town to attend a memorial to his artist Mo3, 28, real name Melvin Noble, who was fatally shot by an unknown assailant on a Dallas freeway on Nov. 11.

Normally, a bullet wound to the leg is not a life-threatening condition. But if the bullet severed an artery in the leg the resulting blood loss can lead to tissue atrophy from lack of oxygen in the blood.

Boosie, 38, has a history of type 1 diabetes which requires daily insulin injections to maintain normal blood sugar levels.

People who are diagnosed with type 1 diabetes are at higher risk for amputation because of a condition called peripheral artery disease, which narrows the arteries and lowers oxygenated blood perfusion to the arms and legs.

Another complication of a gunshot wound to the leg is pulmonary emboli caused by fragmented bone in the leg traveling through the veins to the lungs. A pulmonary embolism is potentially fatal.

Lil Boosie Badazz is the latest rapper to fall victim to violent crime in Dallas, Texas.

According to WTSP, Boosie, real name Torrence Hatch Jr., was hit by gunfire while sitting in a bullet-riddled Sprinter van in a parking lot on Saturday afternoon.

He was treated at a hospital for a gunshot wound to the leg. Police say Boosie is not providing details of the shooting to investigators. His condition is unknown.

The 38-year-old Louisiana native was in town to attend a vigil honoring rapper Mo3 on Friday night. Mo3, 28, was shot by an unknown assailant on a Dallas freeway on Nov. 11.

Mo3, real name Melvin A. Noble, was approached by a gunman when he stopped his car on the highway. Police say Noble got out of his car and ran southbound on I-35. He was shot in the head and pronounced dead at a local hospital.

Police are also investigating a shooting involving rapper/dentist Jerrett Rosenborough, who was shot and robbed outside his dental practice on Nov. 12.

Rapper Boosie Badazz had some choice words for Black people who were queued in line outside a Gucci store.

In a livestream video, Boosie yelled, "Gucci don't like Black people. I don't know why y'all in that line!"

Walking swiftly away, Boosie continued, "Y'all stupid as a f***. Gucci don't like black people. Y'all still in the line. Y'all stupid as a MF. Y'all stupid as a MF. All y'all."

Boosie, Tip "T.I." Harris, and other rappers called on Black people to boycott the French luxury retailer for selling what they believed was a "racist sweater."

The black balaclava sweater, which retailed for $890, appeared to mimic blackface.

Gucci removed the sweater from stores and issued an apology in 2019.

A loyal reader wrote in to express her concerns about an article I wrote about rapper Boosie BadAzz who hired a mature professional female to show his young sons and nephews the ropes.

Read her email below:

Hello, I'm emailing you on behalf of your article about the Rapper Boosie. You mentioned in the article "this coming-of-age ritual between father and son is actually common in the Black community" and that is not true and that is degrading to black community! I'd like some action done about this. The men in my family have never sexually groomed any of their young sons. I'll be taking this to the media as well.

Boosie Badazz claims he declined a meeting with rap mogul Jay-Z who tried to entice him to apologize to retired NBA star Dwyane Wade.

In an interview with The Breakfast Club radio show, Boosie claims Jay-Z tried to arrange for him to apologize to Wade over comments the rapper made about Wade's gender confused child, Zaya Wade.

Zaya, who was born Zion, is a 12-year-old boy who suffers from the mental disorder Gender Dysphoria and prefers to use feminine pronouns.

Boosie, whose real name is Torrence Hatch, said Wade went too far by announcing his child's sexual and gender preference.

"Nah, they already tried to do that. They was trying to hook up some shit with a meeting," said Boosie. "They say Jay-Z was gonna get him on the phone and all that shit. I need to apologize to save this and save that."

Boosie's 16-year-old son (pictured left) supported his father in an Instagram stories post, writing:

"F*ck Dwayne [sic] and his son, [I don't care if] he gay. My pops said what he said. Stop sending me that. I bet you won't say it to our face. I know this girl that will do sum thangs to DWade son that will make that boy back str8."

 

Boosie went on to say he declined to speak with Jay-Z because he didn't think he said anything wrong.

"I'm not apologizing for shit. I don't give a f*ck if Jesus calling to get me to apologize. I said what I said, man. I felt that was right."

Rapper Lil Boosie Badazz was kicked out of an Atlanta area Planet Fitness gym for his comments about retired NBA player Dwyane Wade's gender confused child, Zaya Wade.

Boosie, whose real name is Torrence Hatch, expressed his opinion about Wade's 12-year-old son, who goes by Zaya Wade and prefers the feminine pronouns she/her.

"Dwyane Wade, you have gone too f****** far. That is male... a 12-year-old. They don't know what they next meal gon’ be," Boosie said in a video rant. "They don't have sh*t figured out yet. He might meet a woman, anything, at 16 and fall in love with her. But his d*ck gone - how he gon' - like, bruh, you going too far, dawg. Don't address him as a woman, he's 12, dawg."

In a follow-up video on Thursday, the 37-year-old rapper filmed himself leaving a Planet Fitness after being ejected from the gym on Atlanta's southside.

Boosie lashed out at the gym manager for putting him out.

"Do not go to Planet Fitness, they racist, they haters," he said. "They just put me out Planet Fitness for what I said about Dwyane Wade son. And they said I said in a video one of they employees was a f****t or some shit. Don't go to Planet Fitness... They got roaches in that bitch."

Boosie captioned the video, "MANAGER WHO WAS GAY REFUSED TO LET ME N PLANET FITNESS BECAUSE OF MY PAST ACTIONS ON SOCIAL MEDIA ABOUT GENDER ETC. DO NOT SUPPORT PLANET FITNESS 'Hwy 138 Jonesboro rd' THEy Racist ,THEY HAVE ROACHES , N THEY SHOWER WATER DONT GET HOT!! GET OUT YA FEELINGS LIL BITCH..."

A Planet Fitness spokesman issued the following statement to 11 Alive News:

"Planet Fitness does not tolerate harassment or discrimination of any kind. In this instance, a guest was asked to leave after refusing to comply with gym policies and harassing club staff. We are the home of the Judgement Free Zone and as such, we have policies in place to ensure that we maintain a non-intimidating, welcoming environment for all of our members where everyone feels accepted."

Celebrities reacted to rapper Lil Boosie's bizarre and disrespectful video rant about Dwyane Wade's gender confused child, Zaya Wade, 12. Boosie was heavily criticized for telling Wade not to cut his child's d*ck off.

Zaya's older brother, Zaire Wade, 18, responded to Boosie, saying the rapper had his facts wrong.

Among the celebrities responding to Boosie's toxic rant was Wade's narcissistic wife, Gabrielle Union, 47, who seems to be enjoying all the attention.

Many believe Union pushed the weaker Wade into exploiting his emotionally troubled son for their own selfish benefits.

Union responded to Boosie's rant, saying she covers all of Zaya's haters in the blood of Jesus and will move forward in love and light, or something to that effect.

If you're wondering why Wade won't shut up about his dysfunctional family, it's because he has a documentary coming out on Sunday. The documentary is all about him, of course.
