The site reported that the rapper was hospitalized at Northwestern Memorial in Chicago after being found unconscious in his hotel room at Westin Michigan Avenue Chicago. Despite suffering from the debilitating seizures as a result of his ongoing bout with epilepsy, the “Lollipop” hitmaker has reportedly been released from the hospital.
The outlet also reports that a rep for the “Sucker for Pain” rapper has confirmed that he had to cancel his Vegas gig as a result of the multiple seizures he had this weekend. Additionally, the rep says that the music man is currently resting.
Since the rapper has previously suffered seizures while flying before, it is likely that doctors advised him not to fly due to his condition. In 2016, Wayne had to make an emergency landing during a flight from Wisconsin to California.
“Due to unforeseen circumstances Lil Wayne will be canceling his previously scheduled performance tonight at Drai’s Nightclub located at the Cromwell Hotel. In lieu of his absence T.I. will be performing in his place alongside DJ Franzen for another installment of Sundries,” announced the hotspot.
Back in 2013, Wayne alarmed fans when he was hospitalized after suffering multiple seizures. The performer later revealed that he’s epileptic and “prone to seizures.”
“This wasn’t my first, second, third, fourth, fifth, sixth, seventh…I have had a bunch of seizures, you just never hear about them,” he told Power 106’s DJ Felli Fel at the time. “My heart rate went down to 30 percent. I have people around me who know how to handle it. This time was real bad because I had three back to back and the third one was so bad.”
The performer has also admitted that the health scares can strike unprovoked and at any time.
However Lil Wayne appears to be getting better according to close family members. In a series of Twitter posts, the rapper’s daughter Reginae Carter updated fans on his health. “My dad is doing fine everyone! Thanks for the concerns. You guys are amazing,” she shared Monday morning. “Oh yeah.. & don’t believe everything you hear.”
