The internet and twitter world was in a frenzy after learning that Cash Money rapper and Young Money CEO Lil Wayne was admitted into Cedars Sinai intensive care unit last Wednesday. According to TMZ, the rapper was reportedly on his death bed being read his last rites. However, TMZ has since removed that claim but continues to stick by their claims that Wayne is extremely ill and not improving.
Lil Wayne is still in rough shape … and remains in the intensive care unit at an L.A. hospital 6 days after being admitted for seizures stemming from a suspected drug overdose … TMZ has learned.Sources tell us … Wayne’s condition has not improved enough to be moved out of the ICU … and he continues to be monitored very closely by staff at L.A..’s Cedars-Sinai hospital.We know Wayne has been surrounded by friends and family since he was admitted to the ICU this past Wednesday … and we’re told the mood around Wayne’s bedside has been very serious.Among Wayne’s visitors — Drake, Chris Paul, Nicki Minaj, Birdman and others.TMZ broke the story … Wayne’s stomach was pumped at least 3 times after doctors suspected he had overdosed on the prescription drug codeine … the main ingredient in “sizzurp.”Wayne has struggled with codeine for years — and just a few months ago suggested he had quit using the powerful painkiller.
Y’all pray for Wayne. I think his family and close friends are not letting on to the actual seriousness of his situation, which I totally respect. No one wants the media in their personal business but unfortunately that is the nature of the beast when you’re a superstar celebrity.
It is also reported that rapper Eminem is in LA to see Wayne, although he wouldn’t comment on whether or not he would being paying the Cash Money rapper a visit.
