Lil Wayne is in Los Angeles' Cedars-Sinai Hospital after suffering a seizure on Friday afternoon, according to multiple reports. An anonymous source close the MC confirmed to the Associated Press that Wayne, 30, had a seizure; a rep for the rapper emailed Billboard to say Wayne was “recovering.”
Longtime Wayne associate Ronald "Slim" Williams, CEO of Cash Money Records, told Chicago's WGCI Friday night that "there ain't no truth in what you heard today. He's chillin'. We sittin' here watching the basketball game with each other. He good." He declined the radio host's request to put Wayne on the line.
A confusing series of tweets and reports ensued after TMZ reported at around 4:30 p.m. PT that last rites were about to be administered to the rapper – that report was vehemently denied via Twitter by reps from his label, who promised to issue "an official statement shortly but dont [sic] believe the nonsense about comas and tubes to breathe."
