As previously reported by NewsOne, after suffering multiple seizures in recent months, Lil Wayne experienced a series of seizures in March that landed him in ICU in critical condition for over a week. TMZ erroneously reported that he was on his deathbed, but the rapper later admitted that it was more serious than he initially let on:
“The thing is, man, the bad news is, I’m an epileptic, so I’m prone to seizures,” he said. “This isn’t my first, second, third, fourth, fifth, sixth, seventh seizure. I’ve had a bunch of seizures; y’all just never hear about it. This time it got real bad because I got three of ‘em in a row, and on the third one, my heart rate went down to, like, 30 percent. Basically, I could’ve died soon. That’s why it was so serious. The reason being for the seizures is just plain stress, no rest and overworking myself. That’s typical me, though.”
