It appears TMZ has lost it’s crown as being the most credible source for breaking gossip news. After sending every rap fan in the world into a tizzy over news that Lil Wayne had been hospitalized after a syrup binge and read his last rites, Weezy F Baby himself shut down the talk in one simple tweet:
The panic started with the report below from TMZ which read:
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.
Since the original report, TMZ had made several updates, including removing a line that the rapper had been read his last rites. As of 8:15, they said Wayne’s mother had reportedly boarded a plane to LA and no decisions about Weezy’s current state would be made until she arrived
Members of YMCMB have downplayed TMZ’s reporting, with rapper Mack Maine being especially outspoken on Twitter about the site’s news. He recently tweeted:
Thank goodness this appears to be a case of careless reporting. But let’s hope Wayne does get a hold on his health so this story isn’t true one day — and that he’s the one who actually sent that tweet, since TMZ is skeptical, putting in their latest update at 6:30 pm PT:
Wayne is sleeping right now … which is odd, because he just tweeted saying he’s OK and thanking people for the prayers and love.
We’ll try to keep you updated as best we can.
