On Friday, TMZ reported that Grammy-winning rapper Lil Wayne as rushed to Cedars Sinai hospital in Los Angeles on Tuesday after suffering multiple seizures. He left the following day but was re-admitted hours later, and his condition had not stabilized. Citing “hospital sources”, they said the singer was in the ICU and in critical condition but stabilizing, adding that his prognosis was “uncertain”.
They even went as far as saying that Lil Wayne was placed in an induced coma and breathing through tubes, and that several people were at his bedside crying.
However, the rumours were quickly dismissed when Lil Wayne himself declared it. The artiste said via his Twitter account:
That one tweet was retweeted over 180,000 times by his 10,536,392 followers. On top of that, Mack Maine (the head of the record label, Young Money, to which Lil Wayne is signed) also tweeted, “Don’t believe the nonsense about comas and tubes to breathe…that’s false!”.
And there you have it. He’s alright, guys. Obviously. A guy in a coma wouldn’t have been able to tweet, right?
