Prayers up for Lil Wayne.
Things are not looking good in Los Angeles right now as friends and family of the Young Money boss man gather at Cedar Sinai Hospital. According to reports, Lil Wayne is currently in critical condition in ICU after experiencing multiple seizures caused by a Sizzurp binge.
We broke the story … the 30-year-old rapper was rushed to Cedars Sinai Hospital in L.A. Tuesday night after suffering multiple seizures. He was released Wednesday but just hours later one of his bodyguards found him in his room, on the floor and unconscious.
Wayne was rushed to the hospital again, but this time he did not stabilize. He was taken to ICU, where he was placed in restraints because he was shaking uncontrollably.
We’re told Wayne is currently “unstable,” and has been placed in an induced coma. He is breathing through tubes.
We’re told several people are at Wayne’s bedside crying, and a number of rap artists and family members are on the way. Sources say the scene is violent as Wayne shakes uncontrollably.
Sources say there’s evidence Wayne went on a Sizzurp binge after being released Wednesday, because doctors found high amounts of codeine in his system.
We’re told Wanye’s stomach was pumped 3 times to flush the drugs from his system. credit:Necolebitchie
5:16 PM PT — We’re told Wayne is being given his last rites … with his family surrounding him to say their goodbyes.
So sad. Let’s pray he pulls through.
In two weeks, he is slated to release his 10th solo LP, I Am Not a Human Being II.
Update from Birdman:
8:55pm update from TMZ:
Wayne’s mother is currently on a plane flying to Los Angeles — and we’re told all major decisions about Wayne’s health (including the decision to discontinue life support) will not be made until she arrives.
9:30PM Update from Lil Wayne’s Twitter
9:30PM Update from TMZ
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 saying he’s OK and thanking people for the prayers and love.
LIL WAYNE AND DRAKE ..SAY….We Are NOT Paying A $400,000 Judgment for A GIG they were never told about!!! !
#LIL WAYNE & #DRAKE ..WE ARE NOT PAYING A $$400,000 JUDGEMENT!
Lil Wayne and Drake say there is NO WAY IN HELL they’re gonna fork over $400,000 to a company that sued them for allegedly bailing on a club appearance … because they claim they were never told about the gig.
The rappers have joined together to fight a default judgment entered against them. The judge ordered the duo to pay $432,337.50 to Imperial Entertainment Group. The company sued, alleging L.W. and Drake promised to perform at a 2011event but were no shows.
The rappers now claim in legal docs … they were never told about the appearance, never signed ANY contracts and were never even served with papers to show up in court.
Drake and Lil Wayne allege that IEG used a third party to book them — Melanzh Enterprises — which they claim had no authority to book them.
The two want the court to cancel the $400k plus judgement … STAT.(tmz)
