    Lil Wayne is in the hospital after suffering multiple seizures, a source close to the rapper confirms to E! News.

    But, according to his closest colleagues, his condition is nowhere near as dire as some stories would have it.

    "Wayne is alive and well! We watching the Syracuse game...thanks for the prayers and concern..he will update you all soon. #love," tweeted Young Money Entertainment president Mack Maine. He followed moments later with, "We will be releasing an official statement shortly but dont believe the nonsense about comas and tubes to breathe...that's false!!"

    "My son is in good spirit..feelin much betta...be home soon.YMCMB," tweeted Birdman.

    TMZ reported tonight that the 30-year-old Wayne was in a medically induced coma and not breathing on his own.

    Wayne's reps have remained mum on his actual condition, five months after shooting down reports that the hitmaker had suffered two seizures within as many days.

    A spokesperson said in October that he was hospitalized to be treated for a severe migraine and dehydration.

    Los Angeles' Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, where Wayne is reported to be at the moment, would not divulge any patient information.

    UPDATE: Wayne himself just tweeted: "I'm good everybody. Thx for the prayers and love.

    Reps for the rapper also tell E! News: "Lil Wayne is recovering. Thank you for your concern. We have no comment on his location for recovery."
