Drake Visits Lil Wayne in Hospital After Seizure Scare
Friends, how many of us have them? Well, Lil Wayne obviously does when he’s experiencing a health scare. After reports surfaced Friday that the ‘I Am Not a Human Being II’ rapper was in critical condition at Cedars-Sinai Hospital in Los Angeles, Drake paid him a visit.
Paparazzi snapped photos of the ‘Started From the Bottom’ rhymer as he entered the hospital where Wayne was reportedly in critical condition Friday night. Drake arrived around 8:50 p.m., close to the cut off time for visiting hours.
TMZ was the first media outlet to report on the developing story surrounding Lil Wayne’s seizures, listing the Young Money head honcho as being on his death bed after having returned to the hospital for treatment and placed in restraints because he was shaking uncontrollably.
Drake never uttered a word outside of the hospital, staying quiet about Wayne’s health condition as he made his way to his car. At this time, sources tell TMZ the ‘Love Me’ rapper is “stable and slowly improving” while doctors “are still watching him closely.”
Wayne’s visit to the hospital is apparently due to drinking large amounts of sizzurp after he was originally released from Cedars-Sinai Hospital Wednesday (March 13). Doctors found high amounts of codeine in his system.
TMZ was blasted by YMCMB president Mack Maine on Twitter for reporting news items that were wholly false. “@tmz and definitely don’t try to kill a man before his time….so from the bottom of my soul and on behalf of my fam……F— YOU,” Maine wrote. Birdman, one of Wayne’s closest friends and a father figure, took to the social media site to let his supporters know his “son” was improving. “My son is in good spirit..feelin much betta…be home soon.YMCMB,” he tweeted.
Late Friday night, the 30-year-old rapper tweeted about his current situation. “I’m good everybody. Thx for the prayers and love,” he wrote on his Twitter account. Rumors erupted that Wayne himself didn’t send the tweet because he was sleeping in a hospital bed.
Only Lil Wayne knows the real deal about his health. So until he officially speaks on the matter, fans will have to assume he’s as “good” as he says he is.
