Lil Wayne Hospitalized Yet Again For Seizures

    May 1, 2013

Back in March, rap star Lil Wayne was hospitalized after suffering what was reported to be multiple seizures. That episode followed one in October 2012 when the rapper’s plane flight was diverted after he began suffering seizure-like symptoms.

This week, Lil Wayne is back in the hospital after suffering another seizure. A TMZ report states that the 30-year-old was taken to Ceadars-Sinai in Los Angeles on Tuesday. He was treated for the episode and released early on Wednesday morning.

Lil Wayne reassured fans this afternoon, tweeting out a short message conveying his thanks for supportive messages:

Lil Wayne’s previous trip to Cedars-Sinai was more serious, with doctors labeling him as being in critical condition. He spent nearly one week in the hospital’s intensive care unit, and his mother flew in to make medical decisions on his behalf. TMZ reported on that occasion that the rapper had to have his stomach pumped multiple times to remove drugs.
