So, it’s possible he is still be in hospital at the time of this reporting. This would naturally jeopardize the show. Also, the rapper has suffered seizures due to flying in the past and doctors did not want to run the risk in order to get him to his Vegas gig.
As fans know, Wayne’s battle with epilepsy has been a lifelong struggle. In June 2016, he experience a seizure during a flight and refused treatment. Then, one month later, he experience another seizure minutes before he was set to go on stage. But the most terrifying episode occurred in 2013 when he was admitted ICU following multiple seizures. At the time, sources alleged that Wayne consumed a large amount “Sizzurp,” a codeine and cough syrup-based drink, prior to the episode. Afterwards, the rapper revealed that the seizures scared him enough to make some big changes in order to stay safe going forward.
