If you were confused and concerned about Lil Wayne’s condition last night, you can now breathe a little easier. Contrary to what was being reported, the rapper is now recovering after being hospitalized for multiple seizures.
Things blew a little out of proportion last night when TMZ initially reported Friday evening that Lil Wayne was in critical condition at Cedars-Sinai Hospital in Los Angeles following a seizure.
The rapper was was first hospitalized on Tuesday night. He was released the next day but was soon taken back to the hospital after he was found unconscious in his room.
According to TMZ, the situation was extremely serious, with them reporting that Wayne was being given his last rites and that his family was surrounded around him to say their goodbyes. The update has since been deleted.
But if that didn’t satisfy those who were still in doubts, Lil Wayne officially tweeted, “I’m good everybody. Thx for the prayers and love.”
So with all of that being said, this has been one confusing ride. I’m still trying to make out what happened exactly, but his story goes to show that one must confirm all sources before publishing something!!
This must have been terribly embarrassing for TMZ.
Hopefully they’ll acknowledge their error so that future stories won’t go the same way.
