Lil Wayne 'banned from flying'

Lil Wayne has been banned from flying for the "foreseeable future".

The rapper suffered "seizure-like" symptoms during back-to-back flights last week, resulting in him being hospitalised first in Texas and then in Louisiana.

Now doctors have told him he must rest and avoid air travel for at least another week, reports TMZ.

Wayne has been recovering at his mother's house and nurses are believed to be visiting him on a regular basis to assess his progress.

The 30-year-old rapper, real name Dwayne Michael Carter Jr., has apparently also been to see a doctor twice since his seizure scare. He has reportedly accepted that he needs to reduce his workload and focus on his health.

"The rapper's telling friends he feels the seizures were a result of working himself too hard after his jail stint - and has been calling the health scare a 'life-changing event' and an 'eye-opener,'" added the website.

Wayne is set to return to his home in Miami soon, but he will apparently make the trip on a luxury bus rather than travelling by plane.

After the star's second health scare his representative confirmed Wayne was suffering from a migraine and severe dehydration.
