Last night, some shocking news broke about the status of Rapper Lil’ Wayne’s health as TMZ put out a report that the rapper was on his death bed, in critical condition, using tubes to breathe after suffering from seizures earlier this week, TMZ claiming that he suffered from more on Friday night. The website went even further to claim that Lil’ Wayne’s mother was on a plane flying out to Los Angeles and that he was given his “last rites”. Prayerful messages were being sent out left and right for Wayne and his family and friends as many thought that he wasn’t going to make it. Well it didn’t take long before those close to Lil’ Wayne called BS and squashed the report that the website was running with. President of Young Money and Lil’ Wayne’s childhood friend Mack Maine was one of the first to break their silence as he promptly took to his Twitter account to dispel the story, saying that Wayne was okay and that he was watching a basketball game with him, also adding that an official statement would be released concerning the incident and Wayne’s health status.
Birdman followed suit as he too said that Lil’ Wayne was okay and not dying, Nicki Minaj also subtly speaking out against the story by retweeting Mack Maine’s tweet. Before the night ended, Lil’ Wayne himself assured everyone that he was good and thanked them for their love and prayers. Lil’ Wayne’s response to TMZ writing him off as a dying man was short and to the point. Mack Maine and T.I. though had a few choice words for TMZ:

T.I., who has no problem dragging folks on social media networks for disrespecting his, let TMZ know how he really felt about the Weezy story they put out (Read from bottom to top):
Lil’ Wayne’s ex-wife Antonia “Toya” Wright posted a message on her Instagram account directed at the website. Toya wrote:
As for the youngest of the bunch, Lil’ Wayne’s daughter Reginae Carter, the newest edition to YMCMB, she didn’t let the rumor get to her as she laughed off the “fool” and their talk about her father.
The caption she added along with the photo she posted on her Instagram account reads: “Don’t listen to The Lies, I swear there all lies TMZ you a fool.”
As we are glad to hear that Lil’ Wayne is not on his death bed, Young Money publicist Kia Selby did confirm that he suffered from a seizure and is “recovering” from it.
