Lil Wayne was hospitalized after suffering what his publicist called “two minor seizures”.
As reported by TMZ, the rapper’s private jet was forced into two emergency landings on Monday in Omaha after he got the seizures Monday afternoon.
According to an operations supervisor at Omaha’s Eppley Airfield, the plane landed at about 2.40pm CT due to a medical emergency – but the rapper refused treatment. So the plane refueled and was on its way taking off when the pilot declared another emergency and landed once more.
Messina wouldn’t confirm that Lil Wayne was on the plane, but KETV reported that he was taken to CHI Health Creighton University Medical Center where he was treated in the emergency room and stayed overnight.
Derek Sherron, publicity director of the Chamber Group, says the rapper “thanks his fans for their everlasting support, prayers and well wishes.” usatoday.com
