Lil Wayne leaves hospital following seizures
Rapper is emitted from medical facility after six days
Lil Wayne has left hospital after spending six days in intensive care following a series of seizures.
The news, confirmed by Lil Wayne's publicist as well as his Young Money label chairman Mack Maine, follows a dramatic weekend in which the rapper was found in a critical condition and rushed into hospital. Rumours of Wayne's death had circulated online, however, a tweet from the rapper's Twitter account assured fans that he was still alive. The tweet read:
I'm good everybody. Thx for the prayers and love.— Lil Wayne WEEZY F (@LilTunechi) March 16, 2013
However, despite news of his death being exaggerated, Wayne did stay in intensive care until Monday evening (March 18). It is reported that he suffered a seizure on the set of a music video on Wedneday night (March 14) with many speculating that his love of the drink "sizzurp", a mixture of fizzy drinks, hard sweets and codeine, may have led to his ill health.
Tweeting about Wayne leaving the hospital on Monday night, Mack Maine wrote: "Thanks to Cedar Sinai for everything!!! @liltunechi has been officially been released and is headed home....God is great".
