Lil Wayne hospitalised after seizures

HOSPITALISED: Lil Wayne

LIL WAYNE was hospitalised on Sunday (Sep 3) after being found unconscious in his hotel room following multiple seizures.

The 34-year-old singer was rushed to Northwestern Memorial hospital in Chicago, Illinois after being discovered in his room at the Westin Hotel on Sunday afternoon. According to TMZ, the rapper suffered at least one seizure in his room before having another at hospital.

He had been due to perform at Drai's Beachclub in Las Vegas on Sunday night alongside Rae Sremmurd, and while his team were apparently keen to have him discharged on Sunday afternoon, doctors apparently advised against releasing the singer.

This isn't the first time Wayne has suffered a bout of seizures while flying before, and medics are said to have stated that getting on a plane in his current condition was too risky.

A representative for the star later confirmed to TMZ that Wayne's Vegas gig was cancelled and the singer is "currently resting".

The A Milli emcee went public with his epilepsy diagnosis in 2013, after suffering a near-fatal seizure which reportedly prompted doctors to place him in a medically-induced coma at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles.
