Lil Wayne in Critical Condition After More Seizures: "Everyone Is Praying For Him"
Lil Wayne is currently in critical condition at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles following a series of seizures earlier this week, a source tells Us Weekly.
Conflicting reports about the status of the rapper's shaky health surfaced on Friday, March 15.
TMZ earlier reported that the "Tap Out" rapper was put into an induced coma after his condition was determined to be unstable. According to the site, the seizures were so severe this time that the rapper reportedly had to be put in restraints because he was shaking uncontrollably.
A source tells Us that Lil Wayne's condition is being wildly exaggerated, however. A tweet from the "Got Money" rapper's Twitter account Friday evening seemed to support that fact.
"I'm good everybody," the message read. "Thx for the prayers and love."
"Wayne is doing well," a rep for the rapper tells Us. "We appreciate your concern."
According to TMZ, Lil Wayne's mother is currently on a plane on her way to her son's bedside, and all further decisions about his health will be held until her arrival.
"His family is there," another source confirmed to Us. "Everyone is praying for him."
Cash Money president Mack Maine, meanwhile, took to Twitter himself to reassure concerned fans that Weezy was okay.
"Wayne is alive and well!" he wrote. "We watching the Syracuse game … thanks for the prayers and concern."
Lil Wayne, real name Dwayne Michael Carter, Jr., was admitted to the hospital on Wednesday, March 13 after one of his bodyguards found him unconscious on the floor of his room the same day he was released from the hospital following multiple seizures on Tuesday, March 12.
