Lil Wayne Reportedly Rushed To Hospital After His Private Jet Forced To Make An Emergency Landing

Lil Wayne’s private jet was forced to make an emergency landing in Nebraska on its cross-country flight from Milwaukee to California today, reports TMZ.

The 33-year-old rapper allegedly suffered a seizure on the flight, and when paramedics arrived the scene, Wayne came to refused medical treatment.

After paramedics left the scene and Wayne’s private jet took off from Nebraska, they were in the air for a matter of minutes before he suffered a second seizure, and the plane needed to land once again before even passing through Omaha.

The details of his condition are still unfolding.

Lil Wayne, who is a self-proclaimed epileptic, claims that he’s had several seizures in his lifetime, many of which have not been reported. In October 2012, Wayne’s jet needed to make an emergency landing for a similar situation, which his managers would later chalk up to a “severe migraine and dehydration.” In 2013, Wayne nearly died after suffering multiple seizures that put him in a medically-induced coma in the intensive care unit for nearly a week, Pitchfork reports.

Weezy has previously said that he quit drinking lean to lessen his seizures looked to be up to his old ways hours before the incident.

The anti-drug people gave him a $50 savings bond for his brave contribution to crime-fighting, and upon the bond’s maturity 10 years later, he used it to buy his very first bag of marijuana.
