In the last few days, there have been reports about Lil Wayne suffering from seizure-like symptoms that have prevented his travels. Rumors suggests the 30-year-old rapper had two flight ending seizures. But, according to his camp, the famous hip-hop mogul didn’t have a seizure. His rep told “E! News,” the “Got Money” artist made an unexpected stop in Texas to treat a severe migraine headache and dehydration; not a seizure. The second emergency landing in as many days occurred after his flight departed from Texas to California, and again, Wayne’s camp attributed his illness to another migraine headache episode. Perhaps’ one emergency landing could perhaps have been due to a severe headache but two of them, back to back, suggests the explanations for Wayne’s mysterious seizure-like attacks are more problematic than the artists has revealed.
When MTV reported the incident, they stated that Wayne suffered a second seizure in Louisiana, but added that team Weezy claimed reports that the artists was suffering from seizure-like attacks are greatly exaggerated, maintaining he has no seizures and that the rapper was at home resting.
There is no time frame on when Wayne will return to work, but he already canceled a Saturday appearance at the Jefferson Mall in Louisville, Kentucky, in support of his TrukFit clothing line.
The problem with these explanations are twofold. For one, Wayne’s midair health scare prompted his private pilot to land in Texas so the artists could medical attention. If his plane was headed to California, which is not that far from Texas, a migraine headache and dehydration are all self-treatable conditions unless they were at an extreme level. In that case, what doctor in his/her right mind would have release the rapper to continue his travel.
Secondly, the fact the star’s attempt to continue his journey was again interrupted by the same abrupt illness, resulting in his private pilot having to make a second emergency stop implies that there may be more with Wayne’s condition than the rapper is revealing.
Moreover, the description given by the hip-hop-star’s pilot, who reported that Lil Wayne had suffered a seizure, saying he began to convulse mid-flight is enough cause for concern.
After landing, Wayne was admitted into Ochsner Medical Center in Kenner, treated and then released, but this time he was under doctors’ orders to rest.
It was the second health scare for Wayne in roughly 24 hours. TMZ, citing explanations of migraines and the young starlet’s excuse of “dehydration” as contributing factors to his recent problems, urges its readers to start compiling your own theories as to what makes Southern rappers suffer seizures—and “seizure-like” symptoms—aboard airplanes in the fall. Daylight Saving Time?
That said, the Blueprint Group said Friday he will return to work soon. It says the New Orleans-based rapper appreciates his fans’ support and love during his recent health scare.
Lil Wayne tweeted Saturday he’s “good.” He says, “Thanx for all the prayers!”
The multi platinum performer is working on a follow-up to his last album, last year’s “Tha Carter IV.”
Lil Wayne, aka Dwayne Carter Jr’s., upcoming solo album, “I Am Not a Human Being II,” is scheduled to launch in December.
He’s also written a memoir, “Gone Till November,” about the eight months spent at the New York City’s Rikers Island prison on a gun possession charge.
Unless the rapper has another emergency experience while in flight, it’s not likely that anymore information about the incident will be forthcoming from those close to his empire.
Nevertheless, in the future, don’t be surprised if the artists is afflicted by another mysteriously unexplainable emergency, especially given the grueling schedule he keeps.
If in fact this does happen again, I suspect we’ll be fed the same problematic migraine headache explanation.
