Reginae Carter

Li'l Wayne's fans feared for his life after the 34-year-old rap superstar was hospitalized in Chicago after reportedly suffering seizures on September 3.

According to gossip webloid TMZ, Wayne, whose real name is Dwayne Michael Carter, Jr., was found unconscious in his hotel room at the Chicago Westin at 909 N. Michigan Avenue on Sunday.

Wayne, pictured above with Reginae at her 18th birthday party in Atlanta last year, was scheduled to perform in concert at Drais Beachclub in Las Vegas, NV on Sunday. That concert was cancelled after he was hospitalized.

To prove she wasn't worried about her father, Reginae posted photos of herself smiling next to a Mercedes Benz SUV Wayne gifted her for her birthday last November.

Wayne has a history of epileptic seizures, likely related to his heavy dependency on prescription cough syrup (promethazine and codeine) mixed with grape soda called "lean", "Purple Drank" and "Sizzurp".

Wayne reportedly quit drinking prescription cough medicine after suffering multiple seizures on board a private jet in 2016. He also spent 6 days in the ICU after suffering seizures in 2013.

Legendary Texas rapper Chad Lamont Butler, aka Pimp C, died from an overdose of lean in 2007.

Stress, lack of sleep, alcohol, and poor nutrition are some of the factors that can trigger an epileptic seizure even when a patient is taking his anti-seizure medications as prescribed.

All of Wayne's reported seizure activity have occurred while he was on tour over the years.

    Take better care of yourself.... that's all I got. Hope y'all have a great day!

    Lil Wayne fell on my mind last week. I read on another site that even after finding him passed out, his people wanted him to go on to the next show ?. If he makes it this time, he needs to decide whats important in life cause his people don't care nothing about him, they just want that ?.

  • Kanyade

    So Wayne has been bothered with seizures prior to his use of "lean". I wish him well. Get off the lean, get on the proper medication for anti-seizures, be blessed, live life, love your family, etc. etc. etc.

    Legendary Texas rapper Chad Lamont Butler, aka Pimp C, died from an overdose of lean in 2007.

    Can we get a post on how all of their (UGK) archival stuff was supposedly lost in Harvey but NOW his widow is saying its fake news? Well bitch where IS it? FOMF. Cough the shit up and give it to my husband Bun B to put in a safe deposit box somplace.

    *climbs off soap box*

  • You Could Never

    Get well soon Wayne.

  • Mojo2

    When you can make money and are rich you may not have real friends but just leaches. Sad. Hope he recovers.

    The Grime Reaper spears no one and ya can't take your shit with ya. So be wise.

  • SpiceGirl

    speedy recovery Dwayne

  • sunni_daze

    For some reason I don't believe her and I don't believe he stopped drinking lean.

  • xenaD

    U think they're telling her everything??!... please. She's the child of course they're "cleaning it up" for her. He is sick. He needs rehab and I hope he doesn't ...

  • Renee26

    I bet he doesn't want to give up drinking and drugging for the seizure meds...sad

  • Mec-One

    "And on today's episode of celebrity intervention ........."

  • Ms Thang

    My bff mom was on drugs really bad and she kept having seizures and she finally had one that ended her life

  • Indies beauty

    I was 8 during that famous summer of 99, ever since then Lil Wayne has helped me release my inner ratchet.

  • Ms.Devereaux

    I was just a bout to say everytime on tour this happens

  • Rayne

    He needs to get himself together. You coulda stayed in the hood if you wanted to be a crackhead. Get rich just to do drugs. Man I wish.....

  • Unknown User

    Lil Wayne has a well documented issue with drugs, and he needs to chill. Regine is on her way to college, so I know she isn't stupid.

  • Hell_On_Heelz

    I THINK he can't afford to stop touring (if if he wants too). All the child support orders, THOT financing, etc.

    It seems to be a glorified life, but then it appears to be extremely sad.

    I wish him a speedy/healthy recovery.

  • SingleGalCrazyWorld

    Exactly she is a child and lives in her own spoiled world so she probably doesn't even care. Wayne is the bank and everyone in his family is the recipient. I was just watching the Whitney Houston documentary "can I be me" and in one part her bodyguard said she needed rehab but her momma and family said no she's making "US" money. Honestly I would be shocked that his oldest would think about his health or sobriety as narcissistic and her and her momma are...

  • MythCalledLove

    Can we please retire posing like this.

  • MissyJ

    Where can I find it?

  • SingleGalCrazyWorld

    Its on Showtime...

  • darealwifey


  • darealwifey

    Weezy and Toya created one gorgeous, narcissistic child. I hope Wayne gets the help he needs before he is yet ANOTHER artist lost too soon.

  • KarmaBackAround

    Prayers for need for negativity about what he SHOULD be doing.. none of us are perfect..

  • MissyJ

    I meant online ROFL Showtime? Where they do that at? lololol

  • SingleGalCrazyWorld

    IDK my bad I pay for my cable....It may be on the bootleg sites...

  • APeachLikeMe

    Get well Soon Wayne - BUT your child is ANNOYING AF!!!!!!

  • klwbaby

    I saw that documentary also. That was so messed up that the one person who tried to help, ended up being fired.

  • SingleGalCrazyWorld

    My fist was balled up after that I dont like anybody in her family anymore...they were all leaches and didn't wanna do what was best because they wanted to keep the money train coming...

  • klwbaby

    I was feeling the same. I was shocked at the end when I saw that quote from bobby saying if Robyn remained in Whitney's life, things might have been different. But her mom couldn't stand Robyn.

  • ChocolateChick84, that site has EVERYTHING!

  • Str8tUpMenace

    I can't stand that lil girl

  • ramosyo

    Spoiled lil bish

  • ramosyo

    Jen isn't gonna stop till his heart stops. Can't tell this troll NOTHING

  • SingleGalCrazyWorld

    That last half of the documentary had me balling especially when he said that. It was true tho Robyn was pushed out by everybody because of her lifestyle. Bobby knows he's to blame for Robyn leaving and Im glad he recognized the truth...

  • Lady_Elle

    She is OBNOXIOUS!!!

  • klwbaby

    It was just a sad and tragic story...

  • Applebootay

    He should go to rehab just like any other addict should...

  • KarmaBackAround

    You should keep ur negativity and opinions to urself especially if ur life not n order..tuuuh!

  • Lia Washington

    Leave that shit alone Sir....

  • Applebootay

    My life is in order as far as drugs are concerned and suggesting that someone goes to rehab is actually a POSITIVE thing. I didn't say anything NEGATIVE. I'm a parent and for his and his children and family sake he should seek help. But I guess I can play the new fool like you and live in a world where having fking seizures is cool and we all keep quiet until we reading his obituary. FOH....and Grow TF UP!

  • Dahl

    She probably thinks he's fine because this is yet another seizure, he's always recovered before, and she's used to it. Unfortunately, if he doesn't change negative habits, the next time he may not be as fortunate. Speedy recovery...

  • Queen B

    He said "i cut bk on the syrup now im in better health" i see he didn't keep his word smh get well Wayne we need to hear that Carter V

  • Drea982

    My grandmother drank lot and had seizures. In and out of the hospital until the last one ended it and she wasn't a celebrity. Celebrities live very stressful lifestyles and are under extreme pressure. He needs rehab and probably therapy. Why does everyone hate Toya and Reginae lol?

  • ?Royalty?

    Crackheads never keep their word. It's like in the Crackhead handbook/bylaws or something.

  • Allihave2say

    Um tell the truth. Even if he stopped drinking lean the damage is already done to his brain and those storms will continue until death.

  • Allihave2say

    Reginae has a big head to hold her huge mouth. She needs to know her place and be in it. Toya is just bland.

  • Allihave2say

    I refuse to watch any of them. I've rented Sparkle a million times and never actually watched. I'm not emotionally equipped for it. I also don't watch any of the MJ videos.
    Last month on our monthly trip the hubby played some WH, I listened and allowed it. I played her music for almost a year daily when she died then just quit cold turkey.

  • KarmaBackAround

    All he needed was ur prayers n not ur criticizing..ON MY DAMN POST I ASKED FOR NO NEGATIVITY N HERE U ARE DROPPIN NEGATIVITY..all we can do is pray for someone n that situation not TELL them what they should do..u could learn a thing or 2 about being a parent n read a book hoe.

  • KarmaBackAround

    I feel like u argue with me alot..dont have time..blocked!

  • Malai

    I loathe Reginae... that is one little pretentious wench

  • Malai

    I'm sorry but I found this hilarious ? It's true tho! Why get rich and become a druggy?! Go travel and learn about different cultures...just anything!

  • Applebootay

    Wait whet? sound like a nut case. Suggesting someone go to rehab is not negativity or criticizing. Rehab will and can save his life. Are you literate? Do you even know what Rehab is? Do I need to dumb it down for you?

    Drug rehab: short for Drug Rehabilitation (often drug rehab or just rehab) is the processes of medical or psychotherapeutic treatment for dependency on psychoactive substances such as alcohol, prescription drugs, and street drugs such as cocaine, heroin or amphetamines.

    My house is filled with books, I'm college educated and teach at one of the most prestigious universities in Chicago and I've been celibate for several I can't be any of those things...LMAO....i'm being facetious (meant to be humorous or funny) and petty but its true. You are obviously ignorant (without knowledge). Bird---Fly Away....

  • Rayne

    Ok forreal. Gimme the chance lol

  • Nala Shakur

    Why do i have a feeling this is only the beginning...Lil Wayne has had one too many gna be quiet--i dnt want to sound harsh--but the way we've been losing artists lately...

  • Nala Shakur

    Pimp C was KILLED for exposing downlow rappers...the lean was just a BS cover up bc ppl will go along with whatever sounds good and believable

  • cottonscandyheary

    IF cash money stayed local that lil rat would be working at rallys right now. She better be glad juvenile put them on a map.
