Lil Wayne reportedly suffered another mid-flight seizure today (June 13), which forced his private jet to make an emergency landing in Nebraska.
TMZ reports that the rapper was on a flight from Wisconsin to California when he had his seizure, which led to the pilot staging an unplanned landing in Omaha, NB. Sources said Lil Wayne had blacked out once the plane landed, but he is said to now be awake and alert. Paramedics were on site at the landing strip, but the hip-hop figure reportedly turned down any assistance.
UPDATE (6/13, 5:45 p.m.): According to TMZ, Lil Wayne suffered a second seizure after re-boarding the plane. The aircraft was once again forced to make an emergency landing in Omaha, where paramedics treated the rapper inside the private jet.
This is not the first time Lil Wayne has suffered a health scare during air travel. In 2012, Wayne had been experiencing “seizure-like symptoms” during a flight which led a pilot to make an emergency stop in Texas.
In 2013, Lil Wayne had been hospitalized after reportedly suffering a seizure during a video shoot, and was put back under care a few days later after experiencing more seizures.
Lil Wayne’s camp has not yet officially commented on today’s events.
