A NUMBER of celebrities have taken to Twitter to show their support for Lil Wayne.

The 30-year-old rapper - whose real name is Dwayne Michael Carter, Jr - is recovering in hospital following a seizure last week and although he insists he is doing well, his famous pals have been posting supportive messages on the micro-blogging website.

In response to his message, which read "I'm good everybody. Thx for the prayers and love (sic)," Paris Hilton wrote: "Great to hear, was so worried. Love you Wayne (sic)."

Pregnant Black Eyed Peas singer Fergie wrote: "My prayers go out to Lil Wayne & his family tonight. #PrayForWeezy @LilTunechi (sic)," while Jay Sean added "Sending all my prayers and love to Lil Wayne (@LilTunechi)right now.u gon be aight brother. @BIRDMAN5STAR my thoughts are with u bro. Love (sic)."

According to TMZ the Lil Wayne was rushed to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles on Tuesday (13.03.13) after having a seizure while filming the music video for Nicki Minaj's new single, 'High School', before being released on Wednesday (14.03.13), and readmitted after another seizure.

It was then claimed he was given his last rights and his mother was on her way to Los Angeles to make the final decisions on his care.

However, Lil Wayne has denied the reports and took to his Twitter on Friday (15.03.13), telling fans: "I'm good everybody. Thx for the prayers and love (sic)."

Last week's seizure wasn't Lil Wayne's first health scare; the 'Lollipop' rapper was taken ill on a flight in October which saw his private jet forced to make an emergency landing in Texas where he was then rushed to hospital.

At the time of the incident, a representative claimed he had suffered "severe migraine and dehydration" rather than a seizure.
