: The Webbie scandal has taken another turn. MediaTakeOut.com just got official word that Webbie was double booked for an appearance in Charlotte North Carolina and Greensville, South Carolina last Friday. But according to his publicist the rapper intended to make both appearances. Who knows how he intended to do that.
MediaTakeOut.com also learned that Webbie’s team is sticking with their “seizure” story. Here’s the official word from Webbie’s publicist:
On Friday, February 22 Webster Gradney aka Webbie traveled via train to Washington DC due to severe weather conditions in New York City. Webbie was traveling to Greenville, SC to do a radio show for Cox Radio. After boarding the plane in Washington, Webbie suffered a epileptic seizure. After landing in Atlanta, GA, he was transported to Dekalb Medical at Hillandale in Lithonia, GA.
After emergency treatment, he was hospitalized until late Saturday, February 23 for observation. Webbie has been on tour for the last 8 weeks, promoting his sophomore album Savage Life 2, which hits stores Tuesday, February 26.
“I would never play my fans like that or the people that support me,” said Webbie. ” This is bigger than money for me. I’m from the mud so this is all I have.Being on the road is no joke, sometimes it just catches up with you. I had to chill for a minute, but I’m back out here getting it. You just gotta keep movin'”
O.K. we’re confused. If dude was on his way to South Carolina – how’d he end up in a hospital in Atlanta????
This story just keeps getting worse and worse…
