The rapper recently underwent dental surgery responsible for delaying his upcoming jail sentence.
Lil Wayne just had one of the gnarliest oral surgeries in the history of dentistry. We're told it was a marathon session that included a stomach-turning eight root canals at one time. We're told during the eight hour procedure, Wayne had his grill worked on, several tooth implants redone, more implants added and had the few real teeth he had left repaired. This is the critical dental surgery that kept Wayne from being shipped off to the big house last week. (TMZ)
The rapper's attorney, Stacey Richman, recently spoke on his jail delay.
Earlier this week we speculated that the dental surgery keeping Lil Wayne from jail for another few weeks was the removal of his famous diamond grills. We just got off the phone with Wayne's lawyer, Stacey Richman, however, and while she doesn't know what exactly the procedure is ("I'm not a dentist. I went to law school"), she assures us the grills aren't going anywhere. Also, apparently the reason things didn't get done before the scheduled sentencing on Tuesday is that Wayne's dentist recently had to go on a last-minute charity mission to Nicaragua. When asked if she expects any other postponements in the case, Richman replied, "Barring some sort of tsunami, no, but it's happened in New Orleans before, so who knows." Lil Wayne's lawyer: almost as irreverently entertaining as he is! (NY Mag)
Dr. Sherry Rudd previously weighed in on Wayne's speculated tooth trouble.
"He probably has a bad tooth, a tooth that's abscessed," Dr. Rudd explained in an interview. "With having all of [gold and diamond material] in his mouth, it's going to be really difficult to get clean because of all of the different crevices. I don't know if they're bridges or if they are all individual. But if it's going to be two weeks [from surgery to recovery], then I don't think he's going to get them all off, because of the potential damage. Without knowing what's exactly there, it's probably decayed and the decay got into the nerve, which causes the nerve to die." (MTV)
The rapper is scheduled to be sentenced to a year behind bars Tuesday, March 2nd.
