UPDATE 10:15pET 3/18/13 – LIL WAYNE LEAVES HOSPITAL IN LOS ANGELES!
Monday 6pET 3/18/13
Lil Wayne was rushed to the hospital on Wednesday – 6 days ago – and has remained in ICU since. He was reportedly found unconscious by his bodyguard. He reportedly had his stomach pumped 3 times and od’ed on sizzurp. He had multiple seizures, something that he began having last year and was previously hospitalized for and is widely reported to be because of the sizzurp addiction. News broke late Friday that Lil Wayne was ‘near death’. Those reports were wrong and upset some of his closet friends. AXS TV’s DJ Skee will bring you the REAL story of what happened to this multi-platinum rapper plus an update on Lil Wayne’s condition LIVE tonight. Use #axsLilWayne to let us know you’ll be following this story as it develops.
Here’s what Skee had to say about the story breaking Friday night:
Friday night as T.I. and I were coming off stage at SXSW., we learned together of the TMZ reports on Lil Wayne.
Emotions were high. But when we talked to those actually with Wayne and heard he was not in fact near death, those emotions turned raw. Tip was no longer a superstar rapper — he was a friend and a father, hurting as his brother and family were forced to endure lies spreading like fire.
But that’s only the beginning of the story.
