    (April 1, 2013) Popular rapper Lil’ Wayne has admitted in an exclusive interview with FamousCelebrityBaby.com that he is the son of legendary American actor John Wayne.  He also confided that his true name, which has been reported over the years to be Dwayne Michael Carter, Jr., is really John Duke Wayne II, which was shortened over the years to “Lil’ Wayne.” 

    During the interview, the heavily tattoed Wayne showed the interviewer his “special tattoo,” an inked rendition of “The Duke” from his Oscar-winning performance in True Grit, which is placed directly over Lil’ Wayne’s heart. “That was my favorite role that my Daddy played,” mused LW. “Sometimes at night, I wear an eye-patch and talk out of the side of my mouth so that I can be like him.”

    Cousin Yung Joc Hepburn indicated in a related article that, though John’s Wayne’s parentage of Lil’ Wayne was largely a secret in the press, it was well-known in Hollywood circles. In fact, legendary director Henry Hathaway, who worked on Four Sons of Katie Elder with the senior Wayne, at one point contemplated casting the wee rapper in the movie and retitling it The Four Sons and One Grandson of Katie Elder, but, according to Hepburn, “Back then, America just wasn’t ready for a little boy with grillz to be shooting up bad guys.”

    Lil’ Wayne says the admission “is a heavy load off my chest. Even heavier than gold chains.” And he plans to follow this Summer with the Old School Outlaws tour, where he will be teaming with Waylon Jennings, playing small clubs in Tombstone, Arizona, Dodge City, Kansas and other locations made famous in his father’s classic movies like Rio Bravo, The Shootist and The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance. “This tour is bringing back memories of my childhood on the ranch with my Dad.  Shooting at cans, shooting at squirrels, shooting at birds.  We did a lot of shooting,” said LW, as he welled up. “Now, I’ll be going back to those places I love and will be shooting off rhymes with Waylon. It will be like going home again.”

    A spokesperson for Lil’ Wayne’s label, Cash Money Records, had no comment.
