Lawrence recently responded to fears about his stability by claiming he was "healthy as hell."

The two have been best friends for decades, but tipsters told us it's Lawrence who needs the extra TLC these days.

"It's no secret Martin was overwhelmed by the cheering crowd at the premiere, but Will was there to bolster him and calm him down," spilled the insider following a viral video that fueled concerns. "Martin's had health issues in the past, but he's got a brother from another mother in Will, who's been a tower of strength for him all these years. Will's looking after him and making sure he doesn't fall down that slippery slope again."

As we previously reported, the former sitcom sensation was hospitalized for extreme exhaustion and dehydration in 1996 and again in 1999, when he was in a coma for three days.

More recently, Lawrence responded to fears about his stability by claiming he was "healthy as hell."

The star was put on the spot during a candid interview. "Now Martin, everybody's talking [about] you on the balcony waving at people, [you're] looking around, where you're looking around? Were you looking around like, 'Yo, this is massive?'" host Ebro Darden asked. "Because people took it like there was something wrong with your health."

Lawrence, however, insisted there was no reason for fans to be worried about his well-being.
