A person close to the superstar's camp confirmed Lil Wayne had a seizure and was recovering. The 30-year-old rapper has a history of seizures in recent years that have led to previous hospital visits.

Rapper Birdman, Lil Wayne's mentor, also downplayed reports that Lil Wayne was in a grave condition, tweeting: My son is in good spirit..feelin much betta...be home soon."
