Oh no. Lil Wayne was hospitalized once again because of another severe seizure! The ‘Believe Me’ rapper was about to take the stage in Las Vegas when the seizure hit, forcing him to cancel the show and get some emergency medical attention!
Lil Wayne, 33, what is going on with you, man? The rapper has a known history of medical issues, but lately, he’s been constantly in-and-out of hospitals! Less than a month after his flight had to make an emergency landing due to his seizures, Weezy was rushed to the emergency room for the same life-threatening problem!
Lil Wayne was reportedly seconds away from taking the stage at the TAO nightclub in Las Vegas sometime “last week” when this latest medical catastrophe happened, according to TMZ. Weezy was set to perform at a pre-UFC 200 party, but that show was scrapped. Thankfully, Lil Wayne made it to a hospital in time. After a stint in the ICU, he was released and, according to TMZ, he is resting in Miami.
What could have triggered this new attack? Wayne has reportedly chalked it up to a “medication issue,” sources tell TMZ. Weezy’s doctors have reportedly been struggling to find the right balance of drugs to control his medical problems. It seems they haven’t figure it out quite yet.
Another thing Wayne hasn’t figured out yet – how to quit sizzurp. The combination of prescription-grade cough syrup and soda is highly addictive and an expert EXCLUSIVELY told HollywoodLife.com that the drink can trigger his seizures and quite possibly “kill” him. Though quitting the drug might save Wayne’s life, a source EXCLUSIVELY tells HollywoodLife.com that drinking it “is in his blood and who he is” and he’s not going to quit anytime soon.
Lil Wayne was allegedly drinking massive amounts of sizzurp during his June 13 appearance in Milwaukee, Wisconsin before boarding his private jet. He suffered so many serious seizures that the flight needed to make an emergency landing on Omaha, Nebraska. Though paramedics met Wayne on the landing strip, he refused medical treatment. Yikes. After nearly dying in 2013, Weezy made some serious changes in order to save his life. Hopefully, he makes another change to keep him out of the hospital and on the stage.
