Rapper Lil Wayne got a brand new face … and it has many in the entertainment community wondering whether the rapper recently got a facelift, Media Take Out has learned.
Lil Wayne has a history of serious drug abuse, and it’s taken a toll on his career – and his looks. Media Take Out confirmed that Wayne suffered from a codeine addiction for nearly 20 years. And even though he’s now claims to have beaten the disease, he still has a lot of the scars.
But this weekend, Wayne popped up in Atlanta looking like a new man. According to the images, which his longtime friend Missy Elliot posted online, Wayne’s face appears to be at least 20 years younger.
As soon as the image was posted, thousands on Twitter immediately began speculating that Wayne had to have undergone some sort of surgical procedure on his face.
