Just how ill is Lil’ Wayne? The rapper was admitted to hospital last week after suffering multiple, apparently serious seizures. He was admitted on Tuesday (March 12, 2013) and then reportedly re-admitted to the ICU the following day, after he was discharged but found lying unconscious on the floor, by his bodyguard. Sources at the hospital told TMZ that Lil’ Wayne was in a critical condition, but stabilizing. However, several members of his circle are keen to convince his fans that he’s doing just fine.

Nicki Minaj visited Wayne in hospital on Saturday (March 16, 2013) and took a huge bundle of balloons with her and she’s not the only hip-hop superstar to pop in to Cedars-Sinai hospital to see how he’s doing. Birdman and Drake have also taken some time out to pay the guy a visit and messages have been sent from Lil’ Wayne’s Twitter page to reassure people that he’s doing ok. On Friday, a message was sent out to say “I’m good everybody. Thx for the prayers and love.” Birdman, his label boss tweeted “My son is feelin Good. will be home real soon” and according to The Guardian, denied the reports that Lil Wayne was in an induced coma and breathing through tubes. “Dont believe the nonsense about comas and tubes to breathe … that's false!!" tweeted Young Money president Mack Maine. "Wayne is alive and well!” he’s reported as saying.

There have been no photos of Lil Wayne made available since he was admitted to hospital and conflicting reports of his state of health make it difficult to ascertain just how sick he is.
