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," Paris Hilton wrote: “Great to hear, was so worried. Love you Wayne.”
Pregnant Black Eyed Peas singer Fergie wrote: “My prayers go out to Lil Wayne & his family tonight. #PrayForWeezy @LilTunechi,” 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.”
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.
