Natalia Kills And Willy Moon BOTH Release Statements To The X Factor New Zealand Contestant For Their Bullying Remarks! Do YOU Accept Their Apologies?

Natalia took to Twitter last Wednesday night with a caption that said "at last! I am relieved that I'm finally able to break the silence… xoxo" before revealing a statement that read:

Well, we are so relieved that no one was hurt.

It's official. After performing a sweep through Lil Wayne's mansion, police have given the "all clear," and have broken down their perimeter.

We reported earlier how authorities had received a phone call from a man who claimed to have shot four people in the rapper's home, but after going from room-to-room through Lil Wayne's house, police have confirmed that it was a prank.

What a waste of the services of Miami's finest.

Wow.

We reported earlier how authorities had received a phone call from a male caller who claimed that he allegedly shot four people at Lil Wayne's Miami mansion.

We'll keep you posted as more information comes to light…
