TMZ says the rapper is in critical condition, while those close to him say he is on the mend.
A Young Money publicist gave an official statement to CNN saying, "We can confirm that Lil Wayne did have a seizure and that he is recovering." Earlier, a person in Lil Wayne's camp, speaking anonymously, also confirmed to the Associated Press that the rapper did indeed have a seizure today. The source didn't comment on Weezy's prognosis. However, T.I. tweeted that he spoke to Wayne, saying "just holla'd @my Lil bruh Tunechi...& he skraight!"
TMZ now reports that Lil Wayne has stabilized, according to sources inside Cedars-Sinai hospital. Still, the site claims the rapper's prognosis is uncertain. Though the site says he's sleeping, Weezy just tweeted the following message to his fans: "I'm good everybody. Thx for the prayers and love."
Hopefully this means the worst is over for the rapper.
Multiple, conflicting reports regarding the health of rapper Lil Wayne are circulating the Internet.
According to website TMZ, the rapper, who was admitted to Cedars-Sinai Hospital on Wednesday after suffering multiple seizures, is in critical condition and being prepared for his last rites. The site reports that heavy doses of Sizzurp were found in Wayne's system and despite numerous stomach pumps, doctors have not been been able to stabilize him. Those close to the superstar have reportedly gathered around him to say their goodbyes, with everyone waiting for Wayne's mother to arrive via flight before any final decisions are made.
By contrast, Birdman denies the reports that his friend is on his deathbed, tweeting that "my son is in good spirit..feelin much betta...be home soon. YMCMB." Mack Maine also tweeted "Wayne is alive and well! We watching the Syracuse game...thanks for the prayers and concern..he will update you all soon."
