Lil Wayne Rushed To Hospital

Rapper Lil Wayne is recovering from another seizure, a month after his last hospitalisation.

Lil Wayne reportedly suffered the epilepsy scare on Wednesday, just moments before he was due to hit the stage at Las Vegas’ TAO nightclub, where he was co-hosting a pre-party ahead of the weekend’s Ultimate Fighting Championship 200 event.

The health issue prompted Wayne to pull the plug on the club gig at the last minute and head to a nearby hospital, where he was treated in the intensive care unit, according to

The hip-hop star was subsequently released and is now recuperating at his home in Miami, Florida.

A source claims the medical emergency was caused by Wayne’s prescription medication, which doctors are trying to balance out to prevent further seizures.

Wayne has yet to comment on his latest hospitalisation, which came just weeks after his private jet was forced to make an emergency landing in Nebraska on 13 June (16), when the rapper suffered a seizure en route from Wisconsin to California.

Reports suggest the 33-year-old refused medical attention and then suffered a second seizure as his plane prepared to take off again.

His representative later claimed Wayne’s health emergencies came after he ran out of his prescribed medication and couldn’t find a replacement in Wisconsin, where he was flying from when the seizure drama occurred.

Wayne took to a day later to thank fans for their prayers and thoughts, simply writing, “thanx (sic) for all the prayers!! I love y’all.”

The star went public with his epilepsy diagnosis in 2013, after suffering a near-fatal seizure which prompted doctors to place him in a medically-induced coma at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles.

He was also hospitalised for a pair of dramatic mid-flight health scares in October, 2012.

Speaking to MTV News at the time of his health revelation, he claimed his seizures come with “no warning, no nothing,” adding, “I don’t feel sick.”

“I go to sleep and wake up in the hospital,” he said. “I don’t feel anything. I just hope it stops happening.”
