It wasn't looking too good for Lil Wayne last night as the likes of TMZ were reporting that he was being "read his last rites" following a series of seizures.

However, according to the rapper himself "Wayne is alive and well" and "don't believe the nonsense about comas and tubes to breathe...that's false," which is good news.

We'll bring you the official statement when we have it.

Update: The statement can now be read over at CNN.
