TMZ has a photo of Weezy’s Young Money label mate walking into the hospital at 8:50 P.M., just before the end of visiting hours.
As reported last night, Weezy was taken to the hospital after suffering a seizure, his second this week. TMZ alleged the seizure was caused by a codeine syrup binge and that the rapper was in the ICU in a medically-induced coma. TMZ even said Wayne's condition was so bad that he was read his last rites. But Wayne's crew came to his defense, claiming reports were overblown.
At 5:19 P.M. Mack Maine, the president of Young Money, tweeted "don't believe the nonsense... that's false!!" And Birdman, Wayne's mentor and the co-founder of Cash Money Records, tweeted at 5:33 PM, "My son is in good spirit..feelin much betta...be home soon.YMCMB."
Wayne later tweeted, "I'm good everybody. Thx for the prayers and love," and soon TMZ updated their original story, deleting mentions that he had been given last rites and claiming, "Sources at the hospital tell us Wayne is still in critical condition in the ICU ... but stabilizing. We're told the prognosis is uncertain. Wayne is sleeping right now ... which is odd, because he just tweeted."
T.I. chimed in from SXSW, lambasting TMZ for the dire report.
