Lil Wayne is back in the hospital on Mar. 15 and things are looking dire for the 30-year-old rapper. He’s reportedly in the ICU in critical condition after suffering another seizure. The rapper had already been admitted to the hospital for seizures once this week, on Mar. 12, but was released the following day.
TMZ reports that just hours after Lil Wayne was released from the hospital on Mar. 13, one of his bodyguards found him in his room, unconscious on the floor. He was then rushed to the hospital again, but unlike other time, he did not stabilize.
He was taken to the ICU, where he was reportedly placed in restraints because he was uncontrollably shaking. According to TMZ, he is currently “unstable” and has been placed in a medically-induced coma, breathing through tubes.
The scene in Lil Wayne’s room is reportedly a grim one, with several people crying at his bedside. A number of rap artists and family members are said to be on the way. TMZ’s sources say that it’s quite violent, as the rapper shakes uncontrollably.
The rapper’s mother is reportedly flying to Los Angeles, and all major decisions on his health, including the decision to stop life support, will be made once she arrives.
Sources further allege that Lil Wayne may have gone on a Sizzurp binge after being released from the hospital on Mar. 13, as doctors have reportedly found high amounts of codeine in his system. It’s reported that his stomach was pumped three times to remove the drugs from his system.
As previously reported, Wayne had been rushed to Cedars-Sinai Hospital in Los Angeles on Mar. 12 after suffering what appeared to be multiple seizures. He was released just a few hours later, early in the morning of Mar. 13.
Wayne had also previously ben hospitalized on Oct. 25, 2012, after experiencing “seizure-like symptoms”
