Hold Your Horses, Everyone: Lil Wayne’s Not Dead Yet

Everyone got all up in arms yesterday after TMZ claimed that Lil Wayne was back in hospital yet again. He was released on Wednesday after suffering a seizure the night before, but the site claimed that he went on a Sizzurp binge or something and was readmitted to have his stomach pumped three times to get rid of the codeine in his system, and that he was receiving his last rites and was expected to die. The only problem with that story is… it seems to be false.

Here’s the initial report:

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.

I mean, listen – I know TMZ has been on top of their shit with breaking news before, but who in the hell is leaking private hospital information to them? And why have his friends (and Lil Wayne himself – or someone close enough to him to have his Twitter password, which admittedly may just be someone from his label) come on Twitter to dispel the “lies”?

Could that be Weezy’s team covering for some serious health problems in the hopes that he’ll recover? I guess… but also, what would be the point? And how in the hell would TMZ know whether Wayne was sleeping at that exact moment? It’s all just too weird.

Is Lil Wayne on his death bed? Is he awake and watching basketball games? The saga continues…

  • A drug addict nearly OD’s. . . . again. So, Sizzurup is creating seizures. I was actually worried that he could have a brain tumor or something. I’m pretty dumb, eh?

  • Yesterday, Lil Wayne was rushed back to the emergency room after suffering multiple seizures. This comes shortly after he had been released from the hospital on Wednesday after suffering seizures. Apparently between Wednesday and yesterday, Lil’ Wayne went on a sizzurp drinking binge which caused the seizures. At one point yesterday, Lil’ was reported to be in critical condition and near death and rappers from the hip hop community have gathered by his hospital room. There have been numerous conflicting reports about whether he was close to death or in stable condition. His people seem to think he is fine. TMZ would like him as near death as possible without actually dying. It is kind of the same way they feel about Kris Humphries. All of this goes to show you that even if you know you might or probably will die, it can be tough to give up your addictions.

  • No news source is infallible. At the end of the day they rely on ‘sources’ and if their sources want to exaggerate or lie then they are going to end up printing a false story. The seizures do not have to be directly connected to him drinking sizzurp. He has been having them for a while, if that was the cost I like to think that he would have had the good sense to stop by now. Not dead yet? That headline is mean.

    • “He has been having them for a while, if that was the cost I like to think that he would have had the good sense to stop by now.”

      ROFLOL – Because that’s how narcotic addicted folks behave?!

  • It is so amazing how people can hate on someone even when they may or may not be on their death bed. Someone said something about “narcotic addicted folks”. Are you the type of human who also thinks weed causes more deaths than alcohol? Do you lump all narcotic addicted “folks” together? You have not a god d^*% clue about anything. At all. That CEO who is your best buddy and a great “family man” could shoot H every single day all day and you’d never know it, and that homeless man on the street who seems like an addict could just be that, and homeless man who looks rough from living on the street. Never judge a book by its cover, if people judged you that way the way your so quick to judge over the Internet, I’m sure you’d have not one friend in this world. Think before you speak.

    – a former “narcotic addicted folk” according to you
