Wade described Tyson as someone that is ‘so smart’ and ‘so educated and knowledgeable about life.’ 

He went on to state that he has never personally ‘[come] out and said anything to anybody that feels a certain way about me or someone else in my family and my loved ones.

‘They don’t know us. They don’t know our heart. They definitely don’t know Zaya. So, all I do is what my mama say, “Just pray for them,”‘ he concluded.

Wade was referring to an October episode of the Hotboxin’ With Mike Tyson podcast where Tyson asked Boosie Badazz to explain his motivations behind launching into a transphobic Instagram tirade against the Wade family earlier this year.

‘I really commented on the Dwyane Wade situation because I got offended because it’s a child. That’s really why I got offended,’ explained the rapper, 38, of his remarks. 

He added that if Zaya were a ’19-year-old or 18-year-old grown person’ that he ‘knew [he] wouldn’t have said anything’ to begin with.

‘You know, I just feel like that’s a child and I feel like a child ain’t…at twelve…can’t make that decision. That’s just how I feel.’  

In their prayers: ‘They don’t know us. They don’t know our heart. They definitely don’t know Zaya. So, all I do is what my mama say, “Just pray for them,”‘ he concluded; Dwyane, Zaya, and Gabrielle Union in March

To which Mike responded: ‘I agree with you 100%. I agree with you. But who the f**k am I to say anything?

Mike asked Boosie, born Torrence Ivy Hatch Jr., why he felt entitled to ‘comment on somebody’s life?’ 

‘What happened to you that you think that you’re somebody that can comment on somebody’s life?’

Despite Tyson encouraging him to backtrack on his rant, Boosie responded: ‘I said it and I stand on what I say.’

‘Well, you know what? Sometimes I think, “Oh f*ck, I’m wrong,”‘ replied Tyson.

Back in February, Boosie took to Instagram to put Wade on blast for supporting Zaya’s transition and for calling his daughter by her preferred pronouns.

‘I gotta say something about this s**t, bro. Dwyane Wade, you gone too f**king far, dawg. That is a male. A 12-year-old. At 12, they don’t even know what they next meal gon’ be,’ began the hitmaker.

Similar to his explanation on Mike’s podcast, Boosie said: ‘They don’t have s**t figured out yet. He might meet a woman, anything, at 16 and fall in love with her. But his d**k be gone—how he gon’—like, bruh, you going too far, dawg.’

Continuing with his disdain towards Wade’s progressive parental mindset, Boosie begged the basketball star to ‘not cut his d**k off, bruh. Like, bruh, for real, if he gon’ be gay, let him be gay. But don’t cut his d**k off, bruh.’

‘Don’t—and dress him as a woman, dawg. He’s 12 years old. He’s not up there year. He hasn’t made his final decisions yet. Don’t cut his f**king d**k off, Dwyane Wade, bruh. You f**king trippin’, dawg,’ he concluded.

Dwyane shares Zaya, as well as 18-year-old son Zaire Blessing, with ex wife Siohvaughn Funches, 39, whom he divorced in 2010. 

The basketball star also happens to have a seven-year-old son with ex Xavier Zechariah with ex Aja Metoyer and two-year-old Kaavia James with his current wife Gabrielle Union, 48.
