Webbie Carried Out of Building Following Medical Scare at Show – Report
Fans witnessed Webbie experience a medical scare during a recent show, but thankfully, he's recovering.
Webbie performed at the 213 Lux Lounge in Roanoke, Va. last Friday (Aug. 20) when the incident occurred. His show went off without a hitch, but at some point during his time at the venue, the rapper appeared to fall ill and was rushed out of the building. Footage obtained by TMZ on Sunday (Aug. 22) shows the Louisiana rhymer walking gingerly toward an exit with his security in tow. Before he reaches the exit, he stops by a trash can, where his is surrounded by his team. Bystanders can be heard assuming the rapper is vomiting. Several seconds later, he appears to fall on the ground and his legs are seen sprawled on the floor. He is scooped up and carried out of the building by his security.
It isn't exactly known what caused the "Independent" rapper to fall. He was reportedly taken to a nearby hospital where he was given medical attention. He has since left the hospital after being cleared by doctors and is currently on the mend. Despite initial speculation that Webbie may have suffered a seizure, a rep for the rapper tells the celebrity news site that is not the case.
XXL has reached out to Webbie's team for comment.
Webbie, who has been somewhat quiet on the music scene compared to his former partner-in-rhyme, Boosie BadAzz, released his most recent project, Savage Life 6, last October. Webbie is slated to perform at Boosie's Boosie Bash 3 concert, which takes place next weekend in Baton Rouge, La. on the campus of Southern University.
