Lil Wayne suffers seizure on flight out of Milwaukee

According to a report from TMZ, rapper Lil Wayne's private jet from Milwaukee to California had to make an emergency landing this afternoon in Omaha, Neb., after the rapper suffered a seizure mid-flight.

On the ground, the report says Lil Wayne became alert again and refused medical support, but suffered another seizure shortly after the jet took off again, grounding the flight a second time. TMZ's most recent update says paramedics first treated him on the jet before transporting the rapper to a hospital by ambulance. 

This is far from Lil Wayne's first bout with seizures. In 2012, back-to-back flights were reportedly grounded due to a pair of seizures. The following year, Wayne suffered a seizure attack that put him in the intensive care unit – with TMZ even reporting (and then deleting) that the rapper received his last rites.

In later interviews, Wayne blamed the seizures on epilepsy; however, the new TMZ report cites an Instagram video featuring the rapper drinking out of a double Styrofoam cup as evidence that he's drinking lean again – something he said he quit because of seizures in 2013.

Rapper Lil Wayne was in Milwaukee on Sunday night for a concert at the UWM Panther Arena with Jeezy.
