Lil Wayne has been readmitted to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center because of seizures amid conflicting reports on his condition.
With one website reporting that he was near death, and with family and friends, including Drake gathering at his bedside, the president of his Young Money label went on the defensive.
"dont believe the nonsense about comas and tubes to breathe...that's false!!" Mack Maine tweeted late Friday, with the promise that "we will be releasing an official statement shortly."
That statement never came.
The Southern rapper, whose real name is Dwayne Michael Carter, Jr., was admitted to the hospital on Wednesday after a bodyguard found him unconscious on the floor just hours after he was released from the hospital following multiple seizures the day before.
Whatever his exact condition, it is serious. "His family is there," a source confirmed to Us magazine. "Everyone is praying for him."
