Young Money leader Lil Wayne is reportedly being forced to stay grounded and avoid hopping on airplanes any time soon just a week after his publicized medical complications.
While details are slim, Weezy F. Baby is supposedly under strict orders from his doctor.
Lil Wayne is under STRICT ORDERS from his doctor to keep his ass off airplanes for the foreseeable future ... after his mid-flight medical emergency last week, TMZ has learned. We're told Wayne's been to the doctor twice since his hospitalization and has nurses coming to check on him regularly. The rapper's telling friends he feels the seizures were a result of working himself too hard after his jail stint -- and has been calling the health scare a "life-changing event" and an "eye-opener." We're told Weezy is planning to return to his Miami home shortly -- but he won't be taking a plane ... he'll be traveling inside a luxury bus. (TMZ)
Over the weekend, close friend 2 Chainz gave a small update on Wayne's condition.
"I talked to him last night before ya'll heard about anything, so he's straight," 2 Chainz told MTV News, confirming that all was well with his longtime friend and collaborator. "Young money for life--you dig? Get well soon homie. Hit me up," he said, adding a quick message for Wayne. (MTV)
The Young Money boss also jumped on his Twitter page to assure fans he is on the road to recovery.
"Thanx for all the prayers! I am good.," Weezy tweeted October 27th. (Lil Wayne's Twitter)
Initially reported as seizures, Wayne's camp later said his medical problems stemmed from non-fatal issues.
A New York Daily News report explains that Wayne was hospitalized twice within two days for "severe migraines and dehydration " The medical conditions forced Lil Wayne to miss his scheduled court date on Friday in his case against Quincy Jones III, says the New York Daily News. Whether his legal team will present the case without Wayne, or if it will be declared a mistrial, is unknown at this time. (Examiner)
