Lil Wayne is having health issues, but the media isn’t sure if it’s a seizure or something less life threatening. TMZ broke the story that Weezy suffered a seizure while on a private jet late Thursday (Oct. 25), forcing an emergency landing. Friday (Oct. 26) afternoon, the site reported that he had yet another seizure, but people close to the rapper are telling a different story.
Wayne’s, management released a statement claiming that the 30-year-old was merely suffering from a really bad migraine. “Lil Wayne was successfully released from the hospital after being treated for a severe migraine and dehydration.He is at home on doctor mandated rest and will return to work soon. He appreciates all of his fans for their support and love.”
Sources close to the rapper also told MTV News that the entire story had been “overblown.”
TMZ did a little extra foot work by confirming their original story with people who were at Ochsner Medical Center in Kenner, La., where the father of four is said to have been transported. They also obtained a (grainy) photo of someone resembling the New Orleans rapper standing near and ambulance, and posted it online.
We’re not sure exactly what’s going on here, but in the coming days more details are likely to be released.
