Lil Wayne in Critical Condition, Rumored to Be Receiving Last Rites Friends Say He's Fine [UPDATED]

Lil Wayne suffered another seizure after ingesting "high amounts of codeine" and was hospitalized in critical condition earlier today. TMZ currently reports, "We're told Wayne is being given his last rites ... with his family surrounding him to say their goodbyes."

We broke the story ... the 30-year-old rapper was rushed to Cedars-Sinai Hospital in L.A. Tuesday night after suffering multiple seizures. He was released Wednesday but just hours later one of his bodyguards found him in his room, on the floor and unconscious.

Wayne was rushed to the hospital again, but this time he did not stabilize. He was taken to ICU, where he was placed in restraints because he was shaking uncontrollably.

We're told Wayne is currently "unstable," and has been placed in an induced coma. He is breathing through tubes.

We're told several people are at Wayne's bedside crying, and a number of rap artists and family members are on the way. Sources say the scene is violent as Wayne shakes uncontrollably.

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.

We're told Wanye's stomach was pumped 3 times to flush the drugs from his system.

Best wishes all around.

UPDATE: As of 5:30 pm today, Lil Wayne's friends and family Tweeted that he's fine:

UPDATE 2: TMZ has now taken down the thing about the last rites. So, who knows.

Oprah is not offended by Terrence Howard's comments about her gigantic boobs—in fact, she confirms, "I Do Have Big Breasteses!"

Oprah explained she is in the upcoming Lee Daniels movie, and that the scene "was supposed to be a little scene," but "because Terrence Howard misbehaved, it turned into a bigger scene, and then a bigger scene. He's a misbehaving kind of boy. I heard him... he was on Twitter the other day talking about my breasteses."
