Did Lil Wayne Relapse And Nearly Die From A Drug Overdose?

Written by DeShawn McQueen on Monday, 25 March 2013. Posted in Celebrities, Breaking News

Lil Wayne Overdose

If you have not already heard, let me be the first to inform you that Lil Wayne nearly died during this past month! The internet was abuzz with reports that Wayne did in fact die! Clearly that was not the case, as he has since that time been discharged from Cedars Sinai, in Los Angeles. He has even been tweeting to his well-wishers, supporters and followers.

With that said, apparently he was dealing with some health-related ailments that ranged from alcohol poisoning and a drug overdose to refuted seizures.

In fact, with regard to the later, reputable reports revealed that Wayne's seizures were so volatile that doctors, afraid for his life, put him in a drug-induced coma. Doctors involved in Wayne's care did not expect him to live.

Although Wayne's camp denies that he nearly died, reports continue to pour in confirming that Wayne did have a near death experience, that did in fact involve a drug overdose, not a routine seizure as was was reported.

This new information comes on the heels of the fact that Wayne had been clean and sober, as he has struggled with an addiction to a concoction of cough syrup and codeine, not to mention alcohol. Wayne was court-ordered to remain drug and alcohol free through 2014.

If you did relapse, Wayne we in the recovery community welcome you back with open arms. Take it one step at a time and get well soon.
