Lil Wayne has received a number of high-profile hospital visitors since experiencing a series of seizures last week.
Drake, Nicki Minaj, and Birdman all reportedly paid the rapper a visit in the hospital over the weekend. Lil Wayne has been receiving treatment at Cedars-Sinai in Los Angeles.
Rapper and American Idol judge Nicki Minaj stopped by to check on Lil Wayne over the weekend. TMZ posted exclusive video of the “Starships” performer arriving at the hospital. Minaj was signed to Young Money Entertainment back in 2007.
Cash Money CEO and mentor Birdman stopped by to check on Lil Wayne during his stay at Cedars-Sinai. NBA star Chris Paul and singer Drake also dropped in to see how the rapper was feeling.
Although reports surfaced on Friday that the singer was dangerously close to dying, a source revealed that these rumors are grossly exaggerated. The insider added that Lil Wayne’s hospital visit was due to a drink created with cough syrup, soda, and candy.
“He drank too much sizzurp to get a better high. He needs rehab but he’s not close to death or anything. He’s fine and just coming down off the high,” a source exclusively told Us Weekly.
Lil Wayne also informed his followers on Twitter that the situation wasn’t nearly as dire as reports indicated.
“I’m good everybody,” he tweeted.
The rapper was reportedly treated for seizures he experienced during a music video shoot early last week. His representative soon issued a statement which said Lil Wayne had been discharged from the hospital.
“Lil Wayne was successfully released from the hospital after being treated for a severe migraine and dehydration. He is at home on doctor mandated rest and will return to work soon. He appreciates all of his fans for their support and love,” the rep explained.
The rapper was reportedly still receiving treatment over the weekend. However, everyone around him seems to think he’ll be okay. Birdman, who refers to Lil Wayne as his son, also took to Twitter to address the situation.
