Apparently, you’ll weren’t the only ones skeptical about a tweet, supposedly sent by Lil Wayne. By now, you’ve been over-saturated with all things Lil Wayne, seizures and liquid courage. But there’s one bit of information that some of you speculated about Friday evening. After news hit that Lil Wayne was in critical condition, near his death bed, Mack Maine told twitter fans that the man himself, Tunechi, would tweet ‘us’ and let us know that all was well with the Young Money president. And that he did. Lil Wayne wrote:

But according to founder Kyle Sandler, the tweet did not come from the hospital that Wayne is reportedly in. Kyle wrote:

“@TMZ FYI @LilTunechi tweet did NOT originate from 34.0766385, -118.37954589999998 (the lat/long for Cedars Sinai)”

Again, this is speculation. I’m no techie, so perhaps Kyle can have it all wrong. Are you more inclined to believe that there’s some truth to what Kyle suggests? Or do you believe that Lil Wayne sent the tweet? And don’t roll your eyes at me LOL!

UPDATED: Mack Maine has responded to allegations that Lil Wayne didn’t tweet the message in question on his own. In an interview with XXL, he explained:

“That Tweet [that he sent out on Friday] wasn’t sent out on that same phone line. I’m not sure if he Tweeted that or not. I wasn’t with him at the present moment. One of his fans could have Tweeted that, I’m not really sure where that came from.”

When asked about Wayne’s current condition, he said:

“He’s in the hospital regularly, [not ICU]. I can’t really give a comment on his situation right now ‘cus we’re not really sure, we’re just standing by him right now. Like I said, he’s in recovery as far as we know, so we’re just sitting back, just waiting until he’s come fully recovered before we can give a statement.”

UPDATED (7 p.m. EST). Monday evening, Birdman called into Angie Martinez’s radio show on Hot 97, to give some insight on what he says actually happened, despite TMZ rumors. In short, he says that Lil Wayne has been in the hospital since Tuesday, after he had a seizure at home. He says that he is doing much better than what is and was being reported and that doctors are not blaming his alleged addiction to drugs, but stress. He explained:

“It didn’t have nothing to do with drugs. No such thing like that. To me, it’s just how he works. He works around the clock, he’s just a hard grinder for this music. But it wasn’t nothing about no drugs. He just needs to get some rest and relax. I was there with him. I mean the ambulance came so we got him straight to the hospital where they can contain him.”

He also confirms Mack Maine’s version of what happened by saying that Wayne was watching the game, when rumors hit that he was near his death bed:

“We was watching the game when that popped off. No, he’s never been about to die or anything like that. We got family and kids, so when you putting out false rumors like that you can really damage families like that. He’ll be home soon.”
