Lil Wayne hospitalised for another seizure

Lil Wayne

Rapper Lil Wayne suffered yet another seizure Tuesday night, but was treated and subsequently released from hospital Wednesday morning.

The 30-year-old epileptic rapper has endured a series of uncontrollable convulsions within the past few months.

On March 12 he was taken to a Los Angeles hospital for an episode where he stayed in the Intensive Care Unit for six days.

TMZ reports Wayne once again sought treatment for the condition at Cedars-Sinai hospital in Los Angeles Tuesday night.

Apparently it was a single seizure and following medical care the star was released early Wednesday morning.

The hip-hop star previously opened up about his lifelong battle with epilepsy.

He was diagnosed with the disease in his childhood.

“[I’m] prone to seizures,” he told Power 106's DJ Felli Fel recently. “This wasn't my first, second, third, fourth, fifth, sixth, seventh... I have had a bunch of seizures, you just never hear about them.

“But this time it got real bad 'cause I had three of them in a row and on the third one, my heart rate went down to like 30 per cent. Basically, I could've died.”

Wayne explained his whole team is aware of his problem and he is surrounded by people who know what to do should he become unwell.

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Aquarius:

This is a great time to go shopping. You'll find some clothes, furniture or artwork that seems tailor made to your taste. Don't worry about spending more money than usual. The things you buy will give you years of pleasure. If you're looking for work, volunteer at a charitable organisation that is close to your heart. This will lead to a paying position that is emotionally fulfilling. You're tired of dead end jobs that leave you cold. It's time to move in a more rewarding direction.More
