A source close to Lil Wayne has confirmed that the rap superstar suffered last night (March 15) from his second seizure this week, following his March 12 hospitalization. Young Money has confirmed Lil Wayne’s current Twitter status saying he’s all right, as they deny far more alarming reports filed by TMZ.
The source spoke anonymously with the Associated Press due to Lil Wayne’s history with seizures, including two that he suffered in October 2012. The source also came forward as TMZ had reported that the rapper was listed in critical condition and in an induced coma. “Sources say the scene is violent as Wayne shakes uncontrollably… We’re told [Wayne]‘s stomach was pumped 3 times to flush the drugs from his system,” the site said.
However, both Cash Money and Young Money have denied TMZ’s reports to be true. “We will be releasing an official statement shortly but dont believe the nonsense about comas and tubes to breathe…that’s false!!” Mack Maine, Young Money president, said before he released a hashtag statement of his own.
