Wayne is reported to have blacked out before the plane reached Omaha as it was flying from Milwaukee to California. After the plane was forced to land, Wayne reportedly regained consciousness.
Wayne was set to appear at the E3 conference this week in Los Angeles to promote his new mobile game, Sqyad Up. While it has not been confirmed whether or not he will be able to attend, the star was allegedly refusing medical attention.
Karen Civil tweeted that Young Money President Mack Maine wanted to assure fans that Weezy was doing just fine. But it has been reported that Wayne suffered a second seizure after he refused medical treatment and had re-boarded his jet. The plane was back in flight when the second seizure occurred and it returned to Omaha.
“The bad news is I’m an epileptic, I’m prone to seizures,” Wayne told Power 106. “Like, this isn’t my first, second, third, fourth, fifth, sixth, seventh seizure. I’ve had a bunch of seizures, y’all just never hear about them.”
“But this time it got real bad ’cause I had three of them in a row and on the third one, my heart rate went down to like 30 percent,” the rapper revealed. “Basically, I could’ve died, so that is why it was so serious. But the reason being for the seizures is just plain stress, no rest, overworking myself.”
More details as this develops. Karen Civil’s tweet is below.
Per Mack, Lil Wayne is fine now ❤️
