Birdman Says Lil Wayne Is in ‘Good Shape,’ Refutes Drug Reports

Lil Wayne and Birdman

There have been conflicting reports surrounding Lil Wayne’s health. TMZ claims that he is still in intensive care and being watched closely six days after being admitted to the hospital. But Birdman called into Angie Martinez’s show on Hot 97 to tell a different story.

According to the Cash Money boss, Wayne has been in the hospital since Tuesday after suffering a single seizure (TMZ reports multiple seizures). “All the stuff people is saying, there’s no truth to it at all,” said Birdman.

“He’s doing much, much better and he’s in good shape right now,” he said.

He refuted reports that the seizures were triggered by an overdose of codeine aka “sizzurp.” Instead, he attributes the seizure to his work ethic and dedication to music.

“It had nothing to do with drugs, no such thing like that. He work ’round the clock. He’s just a hard grinder for this music. It wasn’t nothing about no drugs.”

Doctors have told Weezy to take it easy. “He just needed to get some rest, relax. Take it one day at a time. He’ll be back to normal as anybody else.”

He downplayed the near-death reports. “He never was in that kind of situation throughout the whole few days we’ve been in the hospital. He never been about to die or nothing like that.”

Weezy was on his way to shoot a music video when the seizure occurred. Birdman acknowledged that Wayne had suffered seizures in the past, so they knew what to do. “This like the second or third time, so automatically we just lay him down and we called the ambulance and get him to the hospital.”

Doctors have given him medication, but there is no immediate solution. “This is nothing that they can cure. It’s out of our control. It’s something we have to live with and maintain. They can’t tell you nothing, but get some rest and change what you been doing.”

When asked about the sizzurp reports, Birdman responded, “I really don’t know, but you really don’t want to see nobody doing that or something that could be harmful to you in any kind of way. But at this point, that’s not what they’re saying the cause of what’s going on. It’s more of not getting the proper rest.”

He may leave the hospital as soon as Tuesday once doctors give the OK.

Birdman also chided TMZ for scaring his fans and family.

“He’s in great health and he’ll be home soon,” said Baby. “Thank everybody for the support and the love they’ve been giving to him.”

    Saving face, sugar coating and blatant lies.

    If he was a-ok, he wouldn’t still be in the hospital, especially ICU if that’s true.
    And you don’t have seizures solely because you need sleep. It can be attributed to that but that’s not the root.

    They want to stay in denial but ain’t nobody in the hospital for a week do as well as they say. I pray Wayne get some real friends around him thats not just about some money and reputation. I’m not even into his music like that but damn…bruh take it easy. You got kids and all the worries in the world thats behind them!

    So, he’s going to leave ICU and go straight home? No hospital time? Never had to have his stomach pumped? hmmmm.

    I think it’s because Lil Wayne may still be on probation so they’re trying to protect him from going to jail.

    CONTRADICTS

    “He’s in a great health…,” said Baby

    Seizures are a sign of something neurologically malfunctioning so call it what it is. I understand respecting someone’s privacy but this sounds like the same PR speak of “exhaustion” widely used when celebs are hospitalized.

    If he’s good then why are his visitors only staying for about an hour? Why not stay there and kick it with him? Why not do a video or audio of him speaking?

    Yeah he good.

    - Been in the hospital 4+ days. Its good though, because all he needed was some good rest
    - All his friends and family are visiting him in the hospital, some even flew out there so they can support their pal well he rest up in ICU
    - Wayne isn’t having seizures from lost of rest, so that means no drugs are involved.
