Over the past couple of weeks, Lil Wayne’s health has not been in the best of shape. Just earlier this week, he was rushed to the hospital due to more seizures. More recently, TMZ published a story saying that Wayne is on his death bed.
Lil Wayne is in ICU in critical condition after suffering yet another seizure, and we’re told it doesn’t look good … TMZ has learned.
We broke the story … the 30-year-old rapper was rushed to Cedars-Sinai Hospital in L.A. Tuesday night after suffering multiple seizures. He was released Wednesday but just hours later one of his bodyguards found him in his room, on the floor and unconscious.
Wayne was rushed to the hospital again, but this time he did not stabilize. He was taken to ICU, where he was placed in restraints because he was shaking uncontrollably.
We’re told Wayne is currently “unstable,” and has been placed in an induced coma. He is breathing through tubes.
We’re told several people are at Wayne’s bedside crying, and a number of rap artists and family members are on the way. Sources say the scene is violent as Wayne shakes uncontrollably.
Sources say there’s evidence Wayne went on a Sizzurp binge after being released Wednesday, because doctors found high amounts of codeine in his system.
We’re told Wanye’s stomach was pumped 3 times to flush the drugs from his system.
5:16 PM PT — We’re told Wayne is being prepared for his last rites … with his family surrounding him to say their goodbyes.
Wayne’s mother is currently on a plane flying to Los Angeles — and we’re told all major decisions about Wayne’s health (including the decision to discontinue life support) will not be made until she arrives.
With folks like Russell Simmons retweeting the story and Rick Ross tweeting, “We sending Prayers for mybrother Tunechi and YM,” one would start to believe that this story is factual!
But according to 2 sources in Wayne’s camp, the details about him being in a coma is a lie.
Karen Civil who works with Young Money tweeted: Wayne isn’t in a coma…
Young Money President, Mack Maine shared: Wayne is alive and well! We watching the Syracuse game…thanks for the prayers and concern..he will update you all soon. #love. We will be releasing an official statement shortly but dont believe the nonsense about comas and tubes to breathe…that’s false!!
Mel Smith of Cash Money shared: “Don’t believe everything you read. Be patient and wait on the facts.”
Something strange is definitely going on. UI.com will definitely keep you posted.
UPDATE (9:39pm): Lil Wayne is not on his deathbed. According to a Radio colleague of mine, they have spoken to Wayne’s mom and she is aware of the rumors surrounding Wayne being on his deathbed. She is denying all of them. Friends inside the hospital room say Wayne is watching a basketball game and is good. Family and friends are asking to keep him in your prayers. It has been reported that Wayne’s label Universal/YMCMB were preparing a luxury bus ride back to Miami as the doctors don’t want him to fly.
