According to gossip website TMZ.com, troubled rapper Lil Wayne was released from Cedars-Sinai hospital yesterday, where he was treated for recurrent seizures related to a reported drug overdose.
Confusion reigned when Wayne was re-admitted to Cedars-Sinai on Friday after a bodyguard found him unconscious on the floor of his hotel room.
Sources on the west coast told several websites, including this one, that Wayne was on his death bed. But the rumors turned out to be false. A tweet allegedly sent from Wayne’s phone only added to the confusion — and confirmed suspicions that Wayne was in no condition to send the tweet himself.
According to Nibletz.com founder Kyle Sandler, the Tweet made by Lil Wayne was not made from his location at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center.
“@TMZ FYI @LilTunechi tweet did NOT originate from 34.0766385, -118.37954589999998 (the lat/long for Cedars Sinai),” said Sandler from his @startuptechguy account, which boasts close to 100,000 followers.
If Lil Wayne’s Tweet did not originate from the location Sandler listed, it’s likely that a rep for the rapper or someone else may have instead posted to the rapper’s Twitter account.
The Young Money artist was hospitalized on Thursday, March 14th and little about the rapper’s condition has been revealed since.
