Lil Wayne’s private jet was forced to make an emergency landing in Omaha after Weezy reportedly had a seizure, according to TMZ.
The Young Money ringleader supposedly blacked out before the plane touched down in the Nebraska city. The plane was flying from Milwaukee to California when it was forced to stop.
Lil Wayne reportedly was alert at the time of publication but was refusing medical treatment.
The Carter rapper was scheduled to appear at E3 conference this week in Los Angeles to promote his new Sqvad Up mobile game. It has not been reported if he will be able to attend as planned.
This isn’t Lil Wayne’s first seizure scare. He had multiple seizures in 2012 and 2013. The second year, he suffered two in one week with one allegedly being near fatal. Tunechi was reportedly back to drinking lean in January after quitting the drug in 2013.
Karen Civil, on behalf of Young Money President Mack Maine, issued out a tweet to assure the fans that Weezy was doing just fine, however, TMZ is claiming that he suffered yet another seizure after refusing the aforementioned medical treatment as he attempted to reboard his private jet. The plane was reportedly in the air for minutes when the second seizure occurred, forcing it to make another emergency landing in Omaha.
