Rapper Lil Wayne was found unconscious in a hotel room in Chicago on Sunday after suffering at least one seizure, according to TMZ. He was immediately rushed to Northwestern Memorial hospital, where he reportedly had another seizure.
Lil Weezy was scheduled to perform with Rae Sremmurd at the Drais Beachclub in Las Vegas later that evening, but doctors advised him to remain hospitalized. Wayne’s reps told TMZ his Vegas performance was cancelled so he can rest.
The ‘Lollipop’ rapper confirmed he had epilepsy in 2013 during an interview with Power 106. Wayne explained,”This isn’t my first, second, third, fourth, fifth, sixth or seventh seizure. I’ve had a bunch of seizures. Y’all just never hear about them. But this time, it got real bad because I had three of them in a row.”
Lil Wayne’s daughter Reginae Carter gave an update on Twitter, saying Weezy’s “doing fine” and thanking fans for their concern. She, however, did not say if he’s been released from the hospital.
