Associate Says Lil Wayne Released From Hospital Six Days After Being Admitted To Intensive Care

Stable: Lil Wayne has reportedly been moved out of intensive care after his condition stabilised

Lil Wayne has been released from hospital - six days after being admitted to intensive care suffering from uncontrollable seizures.
It was reported earlier on Monday how doctors at the Cedars-Sinai hospital in Los Angeles moved the rapper out of intensive care after determining his condition had stabilised.
According to website TMZ Lil Wayne has now left hospital and while he is still feeling 'weak' plans to recuperate at home.
has been moved to a regular room in the hospital and no longer requires round-the-clock medical attention.
The news comes just hours after it was alleged that the mood remained 'very serious' at the hospital, with doctors concerned that 'Wayne's condition has not improved enough to be moved out of the ICU'.
The weekend saw stars including Nicki Minaj, Drake, Chris Paul and Birdman visit Wayne's bedside.
On Friday the 30-year-old took to Twitter to reassure his fans after reports that he was dying and being read his last rites.
'I'm good everybody. Thx for the prayers and love,' he tweeted.
His friend and president of the rapper's Young Money record label, Mack Maine refuted TMZ's story tweeting just prior to Lil Wayne.
'Wayne is alive and well! We watching the Syracuse game...thanks for the prayers and concern..he will update you all soon.'
He added: 'We will be releasing an official statement shortly but don't believe the nonsense about comas and tubes to breathe...that's false!!'
Wayne - real name Dwayne Michael Carter - was initially rushed to hospital on Tuesday after suffering multiple seizures whilst shooting Nicki Minaj's new single, High School.
He recovered enough to be released on Wednesday morning, but hours later a bodyguard found him unconscious on his bedroom floor.
TMZ reported: 'Sources say there's evidence Wayne went on a Sizzurp binge after being released Wednesday, because doctors found high amounts of codeine in his system.'
This is not the first time the singer has suffered from seizures.
Back in October, Wayne was onboard a flight from Texas to LAX when he started to convulse.
The flight was immediately diverted to Louisiana where he was admitted to hospital.
TMZ reported at the time that he was released after receiving treatment and recovered at his mother's house.
The rapper later tweeted to his fans, assuring them that he was doing well.
'Thanx for all the prayers! I am good,' he wrote on the social networking site.
Just hours prior to the incident, the star's private jet was also forced to make an emergency landing in Texas when he suffered from the same health scare.
After being taken to a local Texan hospital, a spokesman for the rapper insisted he was only treated for a severe migraine and dehydration.
