  • Lil Wayne seems to be on the mend. The 30-year-old rapper has reportedly been moved out of the Intensive Care Unit at Cedars-Sinai hospital on Monday, March 18 after being readmitted on March 13.

    According to TMZ, Wayne (real name: Dwayne Michael Carter, Jr.) is now in stable condition and is walking and eating on his own. The "Lollipop" rapper was first rushed to the hospital to treat severe seizures on March 12. He was released the following day, only to be readmitted soon after.

    TMZ initially reported that Wayne was being read his last rites, but the rapper tweeted March 15 "I'm good everybody. Thx for the prayers and love." His rep also told Us, "Wayne is doing well."

    Why was he in the hospital? "He drank too much sizzurp to get a better high," a source explained to Us. (Sizzurp is an addictive narcotic concoction of prescription-strength cough syrup, sugary sodas and hard candies.) "He needs rehab but he's not close to death or anything. He's fine and just coming down off the high."

    Wayne was visited in the hospital by several of his A-list friends on March 16, including Nicki Minaj, Drake and Birdman. Though conflicting reports on the "Got Money" rapper's health have been circulating this past week, his mentor Birdman tweeted Friday that he "will be home real soon."
