Lil Wayne is “in stable condition and good spirits” after suffering two “minor” seizures Monday afternoon, according to his reps.
TMZ reported that the rapper suffered a seizure, and his jet made an emergency landing in Omaha, Nebraska, where Wayne refused medical treatment. The plane departed only to make another emergency landing after a second seizure, at which point Wayne was hospitalized, according to TMZ.
The Omaha Airport Authority confirmed to EW that a jet traveling from Milwaukee, where Wayne had a concert Sunday, to Van Nuys, California, made an emergency landing at Eppley Airfield at 2:48 p.m. local time. A passenger refused medical treatment. The jet refueled and departed, but made another emergency landing at 3:55 p.m., at which point the passenger was taken to a local hospital.
The 33-year-old rapper previously suffered a seizure in 2013 while on the set of a Nicki Minaj video. And in October 2012, Wayne made two emergency landings due to health issues, including a seizure. After the 2013 incident, Wayne said he has epilepsy and has “had a bunch of seizures; y’all just never hear about them.”
