(NEW YORK) — Don’t believe those reports that Lil Wayne is hospitalized and near death. At least, that’s what two of his closest friends are saying.
Mack Maine, president of Weezy’s label, Young Money/Cash Money, tweeted Friday night, “Wayne is alive and well! We watching the Syracuse game…thanks for the prayers and concern..he will update you all soon.” That tweet was followed by one 14 minutes later that declared, “We will be releasing an official statement shortly but dont believe the nonsense about comas and tubes to breathe…that’s false!!”
About the same time, Cash Money label head Birdman tweeted, “My son is in good spirit..feelin much betta…be home soon.” He also re-tweeted Mack Maine’s comments just a few minutes later.
TMZ reported Friday night that Wayne is in intensive care at Cedars-Sinai hospital in Los Angeles after suffering another seizure, just a few hours after he was released from hospital Wednesday, where he’d been taken following a seizure Tuesday night. TMZ reports one of Wayne’s bodyguards found him in his room unconscious on the floor and that by Friday, he was in critical condition and near death.
Maine wasn’t shy about letting TMZ know how he feels about their story. He tweeted the blunt hashtag, “F**KTMZ.”
