Everybody chill the bleep out.
That's the message coming from friends of Lil Wayne, whose fans feared the worst Friday amid reports that he was in critical condition and being read his last rites.
While the rapper's camp has slammed speculation that he was near death - T.I. put TMZ on blast - peeps close to him do acknowledge that he has issues.
"TMZ was so off base. Wayne is fine," an insider dished. "He drank too much sizzurp to get a better high. He needs rehab but he's not close to death or anything."
"He's better now and just coming down off the high."
