A Young Money publicist has reportedly confirmed rap star Lil Wayne suffered a seizure heading into the weekend despite claims of him being well. According to publicist Sarah Cunningham, Weezy F. Baby did experience a medical complication in Los Angeles Friday (March 15).
Sarah Cunningham, a publicist with the Young Money record label, acknowledged that Lil Wayne had a seizure. The public relations department at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, the Los Angeles hospital where the rapper is reportedly being treated, did not confirm or deny that Lil Wayne is there, per its policy. The rapper’s independent publicist, Kia Selby, said only, “Lil Wayne is doing well.” She strongly denied reports he was in a medically induced coma, as reported by TMZ. (CNN)
After reports of Wayne being in critical condition and on the verge of dying surfaced late last night (March 15), Young Money president Mack Maine publicly spoke out.
“Wayne is alive and well! We watching the Syracuse game…thanks for the prayers and concern..he will update you all soon. #love,” he tweeted March 15th.
“We will be releasing an official statement shortly but dont believe the nonsense about comas and tubes to breathe…that’s false!!
