Wayne was first rushed to the L.A. hospital, Tuesday night, after suffering from several seizures. His stay was short, as he was released on Wednesday but returned that night after allegedly being found, unconscious, by his security guard, on the floor of his hotel. Sources say Wayne went on a “Sizzurp” binge after he was discharged. This is his third time being treated for seizures.
On Friday night, news that Wayne was in critical condition hit the Internet. Colleagues of the multi-platinum rapper quickly grabbed their fire extinguisher and combated the original report found on TMZ that said:
“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.” Sources say, friends were weeping by his bedside.

YMCMB President Mack Maine, took to Twitter to dispel rumors, saying “Wayne is alive and well! We watching the Syracuse game…thanks for the prayers and concern..he will update you all soon.
#love.” Birdman, Cash Money co-Founder, then tweeted “My son is in good spirit..feelin much betta…be home soon.YMCMB.” Wayne’s camp’s account of what was happening didn’t match reports from TMZ, who seemed to be foreshadowing a grave outcome. Mack Maine claimed Wayne would be tweeting, soon, to reassure the Twitterverse that he was indeed fine, and that the reports circulating the net were false. A few minutes later a status from Wayne’s @Tunechi account began to be retweeted as a sign of good faith. But, it fell flat when watchful eyes noticed the tweet was sent from a different IP address, than the location of Cedars-Sinai.
I'm good everybody. Thx for the prayers and love.—
