We are receiving conflicting reports at this time, but as of Friday evening, a number of outlets have reported that for the third time this week, Young Money’s Lil Wayne has been hospitalized, due to seizures. TMZ reports (read from the bottom up):

5:16 PM PT — We’re told Wayne is being given his last rites … with his family surrounding him to say their goodbyes. 0314_divider_graphicLil Wayne is in ICU in critical condition after suffering yet another seizure, and we’re told it doesn’t look good … TMZ has learned.We broke the story … the 30-year-old rapper was rushed to Cedars-Sinai Hospital in L.A. Tuesday night after suffering multiple seizures.  He was released Wednesday but just hours later one of his bodyguards found him in his room, on the floor and unconscious.Wayne was rushed to the hospital again, but this time he did not stabilize.  He was taken to ICU, where he was placed in restraints because he was shaking uncontrollably.We’re told Wayne is currently “unstable,” and has been placed in an induced coma.  He is breathing through tubes.We’re told several people are at Wayne’s bedside crying, and a number of rap artists and family members are on the way.  Sources say the scene is violent as Wayne shakes uncontrollably.Sources say there’s evidence Wayne went on a Sizzurp binge after being released Wednesday, because doctors found high amounts of codeine in his system.We’re told Wanye’s stomach was pumped 3 times to flush the drugs from his system.

Keep in mind, no one from Lil Wayne’s camp haven’t provided much of a status on him, besides a few tweets, contracting the report above.

Meanwhile, a few celebs have chimed in, a few of which are annoyed with TMZ:

UPDATED: 9:33 p.m. EST

CNN reports: 

Sarah Cunningham, a publicist with the Young Money record label, acknowledged that Lil Wayne had a seizure. The rapper’s independent publicist, Kia Selby, said only, “Lil Wayne is doing well.” She strongly denied reports he was in a medically induced coma, as reported by TMZ.

Lil Wayne also tweeted:

UPDATED: 9:53 p.m. EST. TMZ reports: 

 Sources at the hospital tell us Wayne is still in critical condition in the ICU … but stabilizing. We’re told the prognosis is uncertain.  Wayne is sleeping right now … which is odd, because he just tweeted saying he’s OK and thanking people for the prayers and love. 

And T.I. claims to have spoken with Lil Wayne on the phone:

Hmmm…Give me your two cents on this unfortunate incident. Should TMZ be thrown under the bus, although they’re been accurate with other high profile stories? And should we be concerned about Lil Wayne’s alleged addiction to said liquid substance? 

  • Choclatefox

    Reginae and LaToya’s twitter accounts are both deactivated. So something is going on.

    • No, they are not deactivated. They’re still up.

      • Choclatefox

        thanks, I just saw the error of my ways…

  • FOH

    Where’s Nicki’s comment tho?

  • Choclatefox

    There is definitely a concern. Having seizures and being hospitalized is not something to try and cover up. It’s obvious he needs some form of help. But I guess that is how the industry works when it comes to celebrities. TMZ shouldn’t be blamed for doing what they do. His publicist should have issued a statement before things got out of proportion. I thought publicists were there for damage control. But sometimes they seem to use it for more publicity for their artists. Could be wrong. smh

    TMZ should be ashamed of themselves for using a near-death situation to make money. I get the whole media thing, but as humans, where is the compassion for this man’s life/family/loved ones? Plenty of drama that is truly entertaining to report, this is not entertainment. They could at least act like they give a shit.

    Not that it’s relevant, however I believe the truth is somewhere between TMZs version and YM. If someone is awake watching a game, why can’t they just send the tweet then? Why would another grown man have to announce that ANOTHER grown man is going to tweet? And looking at tweets, it’s likely that someone else sends tweets on his behalf. Look through his tweets, it really sounds like a grown woman tweeting. Compare them to 2Chainz and T.I.s tweets. Just saying…

      Especially with all those exclamation marks. Not him.

        I trust TMZ.. I think somethin’s up definitely.. after TMZ broke the story on MJ first, I trust them. I’m sure it’s not something that Lil Wayne’s camp wanted to be announced so they up in arms.. but somewhere between the two stories lies the truth.. TMZ isn’t perfect, but I haven’t caught ’em lying yet

    Why doesn’t Wayne or someone just tweet a pic if they wanna prove so badly that all is well. Or if not just shut up and not try to prove anything to anybody? That’s just me though.
