Lil Wayne OK: Rapper Lil Wayne tweeted Friday that he was fine after it was reported that he was in a coma.
Lil Wayne said that he is recovering at a hospital after a report on Friday said he was in a medically induced coma and in critical condition.
The 30-year-old rapper was rushed to Cedars-Sinai hospital earlier this week after he suffered a seizure.
Celebrity gossip website TMZ said that Wayne was essentially at death’s door on Friday, citing an unnamed source saying he was in “unstable” condition. The report also said he was violently convulsing and had to be restrained.
TMZ also said he received his last rites, but it later deleted that part from the report.
But Wayne tweeted later on Friday: “I’m good everybody. Thx for the prayers and love.”
Mack Maine, who runs Wayne’s Young Money record label, also tweeted: “We will be releasing an official statement shortly but dont believe the nonsense about comas and tubes to breathe…that’s false!!”
Maine said that he and Wayne, born Dwayne Michael Carter Jr., were watching a Syracuse basketball game.
Wayne’s publicist Kia Selby said, “Lil Wayne is doing well,” according to CNN. She denied reports by TMZ that he was in a coma.
