UPDATE: Writer Claims Lil Wayne’s Post-Seizure Tweet Wasn’t Sent From The Hospital


Lil Wayne suffered a seizure last night, reportedly due to consuming too much codeine. He was put into a medically induced coma, but since then has updated his health status saying he’s fine.

TMZ shot photos of Drake at the Cedars Sinai Medical Center with his head down to visit Wayne who was getting treated for multiple seizures that put him in critical condition. Other insiders and artists close to Wayne reacted to the news, including Busta Rhymes who tweeted that everything is good.


Much like what Mack Maine did, T.I. slammed TMZ for inaccurately reporting Wayne’s health condition. The King of the South exploded on Twitter, pointing out that their story had the potential of hurting his friends and family.



Miss Info stated that more than one insider confirmed Wayne was in the hospital for another round of seizures. She also says that he is conscious, but clearly understands the effect of his health crisis.

It was revealed back in November when Wayne first suffered seizure-like symptoms abroad his private jet that he was given medication to treat his condition. As he told Sway of MTV News, “I gotta drink four water bottles a day, that’s what the doctors say.” XXL will update you on this updating story as more information is revealed.

UPDATE: According to a member of entourage outside of the hospital, Wayne was sitting up and drinking water. To add one more swipe to TMZ, the person says the coma story was “lies.”

UPDATE: Over the weekend, Chris Paul was one of the close friends who visited Wayne to see if he was okay. Birdman also checked in, as well as Nicki Minaj. In the clip shot by TMZ, she is seen bringing in balloons for him.

UPDATE: Despite Twitter updates indicating that he’s in good condition, TMZ reports that Lil Wayne is still residing the Intensive Care Unit of Los Angeles’ Cedars-Sinai hospital, his sixth day in total. TMZ also reports that the mood surrounding the ailing rapper’s camp “has been very serious.” XXL will continue to cover the story as more developments come to light.

UPDATE: Technology writer and founder of Nibletz.com Kyle Sandler has alleged that the Tweet Lil Wayne sent out on Friday night denying the reports of a seizure was fake. Sandler took to Twitter to report that Weezy’s Tweet, in which he said “I’m good everybody. Thx for the prayers and love,” was not sent from the Cedars-Sinai hospital, as evidenced by the discrepancy between the longitude and latitude of the hospital and the longitude and latitude of the Tweet in question.

    Lil Wayne is going to die. He has admitted being addicted to “Lean” Syrup. He even said letting it go would be more difficult than doing the stuff. Let’s all say good-bye.
