Lil Wayne's representative has released a statement to clear up the smoke on the rumors surrounding his recent health scare. As previously reported, the rapper called for an emergency landing in Texas while flying on his private jet on Thursday, October 25.
The earlier reports said Wayne was treated for seizure-like illness. His rep explained, "Lil Wayne was successfully released from the hospital after being treated for a severe migraine and dehydration. He is at home on doctor-mandated rest and will return to work soon. He appreciates all of his fans for their support and love."
This put to rest the rumor that he was overdosing on drugs. MediaTakeOut.com initially reported "THE STREETS say that earlier that day Weezy was sippin EXTRA HEAVY on that lean. And that it may have caused the health issues."
On a separate note, Wayne will be forced to cancel an appearance on Saturday at the Dillard store inside Jefferson Mall in Louisville, Kentucky. He was due to promote his TrukFit clothing line that day but will reschedule it. Customers who made qualifying purchases are advised to keep their receipts and the wristbands. Dillard is also offering 300 shoppers to purchase $150 or more in TrukFit apparel at the Louisville store to gain access to a VIP party at the store on the day Wayne makes his appearance.
