Real Housewives of Orange County star Shannon Beador wasn’t the only one who suffered a massive health scare over the holiday weekend. According to TMZ, rapper Lil Wayne, who suffers from epilepsy, was found unconscious in his hotel room at the Westin in Chicago after suffering at least one seizure.
He was reportedly rushed to Northwestern Memorial Hospital, where yet another seizure occurred, as the outlet confirmed with his rep.
His Vegas show was consequently cancelled, though both his rep and his daughter, Reginae Carter, say that the 34-year-old is now on the mend.
“My dad is doing fine everyone!” she confirmed in a Twitter post thanking fans for their concern.
She also gave a word of caution, telling followers not to “believe everything they hear.”
It’s not the first time the musician has been plagued with an epileptic episode — he suffered similar attacks last year, several of which forced his plane to make an emergency landing, while another forced him to cancel a separate Vegas appearance.
As he shared with MTV’s Sway back in 2013, he sometimes doesn’t remember his seizures, which often come about without warning (“No warning, no nothing,”), and wakes up confused in a medical facility. “I don’t feel sick,” he explained. “I get headaches real bad.”
We’re very happy to hear that the “No Frauds” singer is doing okay, and are wishing him the speediest of recoveries!
