Lil Wayne's recent seizures were reportedly a result of him not taking his epilepsy medicine. It had been previously supposed that they had been caused by his heavy lean intake.
The rap world was in for a major scare earlier this week, as it was reported that Lil Wayne suffered two seizures on board his private jet, forcing his pilot to make two separate emergency landings. Luckily, Wayne's folks soon confirmed that he was in stable condition, but a worrisome report claimed that the Young Money boss had been downing copious amounts of lean on the night before his seizures. All in all, though, the situation didn't seem to dire, as Weezy performed a show two nights ago (June 15), just a day after getting released from the hospital.
While he should probably still control his codeine intake, one of his reps has now told TMZ that Wayne's seizures were a result of him not taking the medicine he's prescribed for his epilepsy. Wayne apparently forgot his meds while on the road, and he couldn't get his hands on an Rx in Milwaukee, where he was set to perform. He thought he could make it through the trip regardless, but clearly, he was mistaken. Fortunately, he had a pilot who's trained in the art of an emergency descent.
Wayne has suffered with epilepsy for years, and it's unclear if his latest seizures were more threatening than those he's had in the past. Regardless, he's hopefully learned to keep his meds on him at all times, especially when he's on an airplane.
