Boosie Badazz’s Leg Isn’t Getting Amputated
According to the latest reports, Boosie had surgery on his leg but didn’t have it removed. Even better, Boosie is already back home from the operation.
Sources close to Boosie tell TMZ … he did NOT get his foot amputated — contrary to reports — but he did have a couple of surgeries for his gunshot wound. Our sources say Boosie had a procedure to remove bullet fragments, and he had some screws put in to make sure his foot properly heals. Boosie has diabetes, which led to speculation about potential amputation, but we’re told the only medical decisions in relation to his diabetes had to do with his pre-surgery diet. (TMZ)

On Thursday (Nov. 19), Louis Givens reposted an article to his Instagram story that suggested Boosie was getting his leg amputated. He shut down the article by writing, “Fake News” above the picture. (REVOLT TV)
