    The Lollipop hitmaker hit headlines on Monday after a video titled, "RIP Lil Wayne, Rapper Found Dead", surfaced online and falsely reported that the star, who is epileptic, died after suffering a seizure.

    Many are speculating that the video itself is a virus, since users have to share the clip on Facebook before viewing it, which is a common template used by hackers to spread malware on computers.

    But fans can rest assured that Wayne is fine and not deceased, as the video reports.

    Earlier this year, the rapper was said to be near death after suffering a seizure and being placed in a medically-induced coma in the intensive care unit at Cedars Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles.

    However, he later took to Twitter to assure devotees he was making a recovery, writing, "I'm good everybody. Thnx (thanks) for the prayers and love."

    The health scare subsequently prompted Wayne, 31, to go public with his epilepsy diagnosis.
