Nicki Minaj

Nicki Minaj spent her Saturday night visiting Lil Wayne at Cedars-Sinai hospital -- where he's recovering from several seizures he suffered earlier this week -- officially adding her name to the HUGE list of superstars checking in on the rap mogul.

Our photog spotted Minaj (and her plethora of get-well balloons) arriving at the hospital around 8:00 PM. She was seen again, about an hour later, leaving. The two go way back, Nicki has been signed to Young Money (Wayne's label) since 2007.

Minaj is the latest in a long list of celebs to visit Weezy ... others include Birdman, Drake, and Clippers star Chris Paul.

TMZ broke the story ... Wayne was hospitalized Tuesday night after suffering multiple seizures. He was released and then re-admitted to the ICU on Wednesday after his body guard found him lying unconscious on the floor. He is currently recovering.

True friends would get him off the sizzzup and other drugs. A million for a birthday present is good but a true friend would help him out the best they possibly can with his drug addiction. Like he needs another million. He needs true friends. Tough spot he got himself him. I think he can pull threw it. Bible lesson- Judas got the gold and then killed himself.

Harvey and Terrific Crew!

Read this one, please! And investigate this idea, Please! It could be a life and death matter for Lil Wayne. I think I may know what's wrong with him and somebody or anybody with a loud voice need to to raise this issue. The issue is his dental work. All that metal and outrageous procedures he's had done could very well be causing these electrical imbalances that resulting in seizures. What makes me say this you asked? No, I'm not a doctor, just a health enthusiast, whose researched dental and other issues for my own benefit. Just saying somebody needs to check this out before its too late for Lil Wayne and bring some attention to this irresponsible behavior (and possibly ignorant) dentists that put people in risk this way. I know you may not buy into this thesis but somebody with a voice as easlly heard as TMZs needs to care enough or be curious enough to invest a few hours of one of your super intelligent and funny staffers to check this out and put it out there. Please! Okay, okay a moderately intelligent person would do. Thanks.

Damn, Nikki is so weird acting! She acts like she is a stuck up bitch and I understand she is!!! Her ghetto is showing!!! She also should wear looser clothes, she has big thighs and a big bubble butt. She is a fashion hot mess!!!!

She's carrying balloons. Somehow, I think if he was in a coma or on his death bed, that would be inappropriate, even for the likes of skanky rap chick.

I think he is fine, and enjoying the attention, publicity, etc. from his self-induced ongoing sizzures.


Oh well, he'll be back in there again in a couple of days. Must increase sales of the new album and whatnot.

He's a twisted publicity whore.

And yet, so beloved and important to so many, apparently.

How long will he keep his flock waiting on edge to find out if he survives to sing another tune?


The anticipation must be agonizing for those that think he is so special in their (pitiful) lives.

I think he's fine, the balloons say it all, it looks like a celebration of life in there more than a 'last rites' grieving unless nicki is so insensitive and or trying to fool us with the 'props'

Imo tmz got this story right from the beginning. Now there is a media blackout. I think this story has 3 options right now. A. Wezzy is brain dead but will survive. B. He is on his death bed and will die or C. He is dead already and/or dying and will be replaced by a body double

Yep, you broke the story, which was nothing more than hearsay and half truths AND OVER-HYPE. Get over yourselves. Really.
All the hype Friday night over a bunch of made up crap and now nothing except to pat yourselves on the back for making up **** in the first place AND NOT EVEN GETTING IT RIGHT? STUPID.
