Lil Wayne has offered financial help to the police officer who saved him from suicide.
The rapper, 38, recently opened up about trying to kill himself in New Orleans when he was just 12 and praised police officer Robert Hoobler, who he refers to as Uncle Bob, for getting him to the hospital and saving his life.
Robert has revealed that when they met in 2019, Lil Wayne offered to provide financial support if he ever needed it, telling him ‘all he has to do is say the word’.

Robert told TMZ that he has not taken the rapper up on his generous offer but they have had discussions about him joining Lil Wayne’s team in ‘some sort of administrative capacity’.
Earlier this month, Lil Wayne – whose full name is Dwayne Michael Carter, Jr. – spoke candidly about his mental health issues and the devastating day he used his mother’s gun to try to end his life aged 12.
He attempted to take his own life when he was just a boy following a phone call with his aunt who said he wouldn’t be allowed to pursue music after ditching class.
The musician also described the series of events leading up to his attempt where his mother found out he had been truant from school and was on her way home to punish him for his actions.

Speaking on an August episode of Uncomfortable Conversations podcast with Emmanuel Acho, Wayne revealed: ‘I picked up the phone, I called the police. Yes, I knew where she put her gun and it was in her bedroom. And so I went in her bedroom, grabbed the gun. I already made the phone call, looked in the mirror.
‘I pulled the trigger. [I shot] in my chest. I aimed for my heart, didn’t feel a thing though. So I wasn’t going through any pain, it was the shock. I woke up to the police knocking, that’s what woke me up. It took too long to die.’
He added: ‘The blood was pouring out of my chest so much that it made it easy for me to slide with my shirt on the wood across the floor. I made it all the way there. All the energy I had left was to kick the door.’

Law enforcement officials found his body, but instead of administering medical attention, they searched the home for drugs and other weapons.
Uncle Bob ran up the steps and immediately helped Wayne, with the rapper recalling: ‘I was spitting all in his face, blood and everything and all I was trying to tell was I’m not a baby. He kept saying, ”Do you not see the f***ing baby on the ground with a hole in his chest?”’
‘He was screaming at them… and he must’ve been the boss because they all came in the room and was like, ”Oh sorry boss, we called the ambulance” and he was like, ”I don’t give a f**k.”’

Wayne credited God with saving his life that day and added he was never truly able to discuss his mental health with his mother.
‘When you have no one to vent to, no one to get this out to, you can’t bring it to your friends at school because you’re still trying to be cool to them, you’re not tryna let them know, ”I got something going on at home,”’ he said.
‘Also, what I never said was… the mom that I knew before that day, on my life, and everyone’s life. I have never met, or seen, or heard that lady again in my life.’
‘So I didn’t die that day, but somebody was gone. She’s never been that way ever again,’ he continued. ‘As far as the parents out there, obviously that was an eye-opener for her. And what she decided to do was, I let my flower grow.’
Wayne also shared that he met Bob again years later.
‘I met him years later and he said to me, ”I’m just happy to see I saved a life that mattered”.’
In his 2015 track London Road, Lil Wayne suggested that Bob had died, rapping: ‘I remember goin’ in your gun drawer, puttin’ it to my chest and missin’ my heart by centimetres, I remember dyin’ on her room floor and wakin’ up in some police’s arms, he died recent, so I hope heaven made more room for him.’
However Bob got in touch with Wayne after the track’s release to confirm that he was in fact alive and that the rapper would not need to cover his funeral costs, which Wayne reportedly offered to do.
