UPDATE: TMZ reports he is in critical condition but is stabilizing. They are also saying he’s asleep, but before he conked out, he tweeted his fans saying that he’s OK. Apparently Purple Drank gives you the power to sleep tweet. Lesson of the day kids, you shouldn’t always rub a lil ‘Tussin on it.
If you ask TMZ about Lil Wayne, they’ll tell you he’s in a coma right now and not doing well. If you ask his friend Mack Maine of Young Money/Cash Money about Lil Wayne, he’ll tell you that TMZ is telling lies. First, here’s TMZ’s story…
TMZ says that Lil Wayne is in a coma at Cedars Sinai in L.A. and he’s in a serious, serious way. Lil Wayne’s family and friends have all shown up, because doctors aren’t sure if he’s going to pull through. Wayne’s mom is currently flying to L.A. and apparently no decisions will be made about his health until she gets to the hospital.
Lil Wayne regularly suffers from seizures and on Tuesday night he was hospitalized after having a ton of seizures. Wayne was released on Wednesday, but he was back in the hospital that day after his bodyguard found him unconscious on the floor. Wayne was taken to the hospital again, but this time his condition was worse and they weren’t able to control the seizures. They put him in ICU and had to restrain him to a bed, because he kept shaking. They put him in an induced coma and he’s breathing through tubes.
The doctors found a whole lot of codeine in his system, so they think that Lil Wayne went wild and drank a pool full of Sizzurp when he got out of the hospital on Wednesday. There was so much Purple Drank in his body that they had to pump his stomach 3 times.
That’s TMZ’s story, but Mack Maine is tweeting something completely different:
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!!
Who to believe?! Well, hopefully Lil Wayne is fine and watching a basketball game, because he has like 10,000 kids (at least) to support.
