The Cash Money rapper's plane was forced to make an emergency landing in Omaha, Neb., on Monday after he suffered two seizures. However, the rapper reportedly refused medical attention and got back on the plane. We're told his plane was in the air for minutes when the 2nd seizure occurred ... and was forced to land in Omaha once again. In a statement released Monday, Lil Wayne's rep said he thanks his fans for their support.

Lil Wayne was previously hospitalized in March 2013 and October 2012 for seizures and dehydration, respectively.

In the past, Wayne has maintained the seizures are due to his epilepsy.


He has been taken to the CHI University medical Center for continued treatment.

He said: "This isn't my first, second, third, fourth, fifth, sixth or seventh seizure".

“I've had a bunch of them, but y'all never get to hear about them. Basically, I could've died soon”.


He has said he is "prone to seizures", which can be brought on by stress, lack of rest and being overworked.

Over a two-decade career, Lil Wayne has become one of the biggest names in rap music.

 

The rapper is scheduled to perform in Kansas City this Saturday.
