BREAKING: Lil Wayne On Life Support & Is In Critical Condition (UPDATE: Publicist Confirms)

Lil Wayne

Within the last couple hours, a big media scare came about in the form of rumors surrounding speculations on the potential passing of Dwayne Michael Carter, otherwise known as Lil Wayne. Recently, Wayne was admitted into the hospital on this last Tuesday for violent seizures, was later released on Thursday, and was readmitted tonight. According to TMZ, Wayne’s mother is currently in flight to LA to give the yay/nay on her son’s life support.

We’ll leave you to decide fact from fiction. Stay tuned as we provide updates on that matter. The following was pulled from TMZ’s original report (as of roughly 9:00 PM EST) on the situation. It’s been noted that TMZ’s pulled a part of the article that reads: “5:16 PM PT — We’re told Wayne is being prepared for his last rites … with his family surrounding him to say their goodbyes.”

Follow the jump for disagreeing tweets by Birdman, Mack Maine, and Erika Ramirez, an editor at Billboard.

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.


5:16 PM PT — We’re told Wayne is being prepared for his last rites … with his family surrounding him to say their goodbyes.

Wayne’s mother is currently on a plane flying to Los Angeles — and we’re told all major decisions about Wayne’s health (including the decision to discontinue life support) will not be made until she arrives.

I guess god picks and chooses, I guess he’ll save the children when he is done saving the rich drug addict ” lil wayne,” and everyone else who lives in a society that provides clean water and good health care ETC. you’re right, there is no lord, cause if there was he would be either evil or un able to help.
