OFFICIAL statement from Young Money publicist: “We can confirm Lil Wayne did have a seizure and that he is recovering.”
Multiple media outlets are reporting the Young Money rapper Lil Wayne has suffered more seizures and is not breathing on his own.
According to reports, the rapper was rushed to a LA hospital where he was placed in a induced coma after he was found on the floor unconscious by his bodyguard. However, there seems to be some conflicting reports on his condition. TMZ is saying his condition is bad however, his Young Money family is saying he’s fine.
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.
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. Wayne is currently “unstable,” and has been placed in an induced coma. He is breathing through tubes.
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. – TMZ

We’re told the prognosis is uncertain. – TMZ
