Lil Wayne Released From Hospital, According To Mack Maine
UPDATE: Mack Maine uses Twitter to confirm that Lil Wayne has left Cedars-Sinai Medical Center after doctor clearance. He also refutes claims that he spoke to XXLMag.com regarding Wayne's tweets.
In the developing Lil Wayne hospitalization story, Young Money Records President Mack Maine admitted today (March 18) that it is indeed unclear if the rapper sent out the Friday health status tweet.
In the moments following TMZ's initial report of Lil Wayne's second seizure hospitalization, Mack Maine and Birdman both refuted information in the reports, including that Wayne was in a coma and on assisted breathing. Moments following that update, Lil Wayne's @LilTunechi Twitter account notified fans that reports were misleading. "I'm good everybody," allegedly said the Young Money founder and star.
I'm good everybody. Thx for the prayers and love.— Lil Wayne WEEZY F (@LilTunechi) March 16, 2013
"That [Friday] tweet wasn’t sent out on that same phone line,” Mack Maine told XXLmag.com today. “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.”
The revelation came just hours after questions arose on latitude and longitude coordinates from Wayne's March 15 tweet. A Tech source pointed out that the status update could not have come from Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Beverly Hills, California, where Lil Wayne has been housed for over four days.
UPDATE: Hours after XXLmag.com's report, Mack Maine has updated the Lil Wayne story, and refuted earlier information.
