Lil Wayne Suffers Seizures on Plane, Refuses Medical Assistance
Rapper Lil Wayne reportedly suffered back to back seizures while flying from Wisconsin to California, and he refused medical assistance.
Reminiscent of his 2012 encounter with an emergency landing after suffering from a seizure, Lil Wayne again had to urgently land his plane, on June 13 after another seizure attack, TMZ reported. The rapper was in flight from Wisconsin to California when out of nowhere, a seizure occurred causing the "How To Love" rapper to black out.
Upon landing, paramedics arrived ready to provide medical assistance to the 33-year-old but, as E Online reported, "the party refused treatment." Upon believing his condition was stable enough to continue on his journey to California, Wayne reboarded the plane only to have a second attack causing the pilot to make yet another emergency landing in Omaha, Nebraska, and he actually received the medical attention that he previously declined at that point, being taken to a local hospital by ambulance.
It was revealed to the public back in 2012 that the Young Money executive has suffered from epileptic seizures for many years. According to MTV News, it was during a Rap Fix Live 2013 interview that Wayne revealed his condition and explained how the seizures happen at random, he usually doesn't remember them and there's really nothing he can do about it.
"No warning, no nothing, I don't feel sick," explained the New Orleans rapper. "...The bad news is I'm an epileptic, so I'm prone to seizures."
After his most recent encounter, a rep confirmed that he is showing improvement and thanks all of his fans and supporters for their well wishes.
"We can confirm that he did experience two minor seizures yesterday," a rep from Lil Wayne's camp explained as reported by E. "Under the guidance of his own doctors, he is now in stable condition and good spirits. He thanks his fans for their everlasting support, prayers and well wishes."
