Earlier reports of Lil Wayne’s failing health may have been exaggerated. TMZ initially claimed that the rapper was in a coma and his situation looked dire, but Wayne’s representatives have refuted the reports. Sarah Cunningham, a publicist with Wayne’s Young Money record label, acknowledged Wayne’s having had a seizure, while his independent publicist, Kia Selby, said only, “Lil Wayne is doing well.” She denied reports of a medically-induced coma.
Mack Maine, president of Young Money, gave an update to fans via Twitter.
“Wayne is alive and well! We watching the Syracuse game…thanks for the prayers and concern..he will update you all soon. #love,” Maine tweeted. “We will be releasing an official statement shortly but dont believe the nonsense about comas and tubes to breathe…that’s false!!”
“@TMZ it’s certain sh*t you should not talk about or play with if u don’t kno what u talking bout….don’t deceive the fans or the people,” he added. “@TMZ and definitely don’t try to kill a man before his time….so from the bottom of my soul and on behalf of my fam……F**K YOU”
