U.S. rapper Lil Wayne says he's good and thanked fans for their concern after a reported seizure that led celebrity website TMZ.com to claim he was in a medically induced coma and near death.
The 30-year-old rapper's spokeswoman said in an email that "Lil Wayne is recovering," but did not specify what he was suffering from.
TMZ said the rapper was admitted to Cedars-Sinai suffering from seizures and subsequently released.
But the website said he was readmitted the next day after his bodyguard found him unconscious.
Wayne, whose real name is Dwayne Michael Carter Jr., has suffered several unexplained seizures in the past few months, including two in January while on a plane.
He is scheduled to release his tenth studio album on March 26th.
