Lil Wayne is stable and in “good spirits” after suffering a minor seizure earlier today (June 13), a rep for the rapper tells Billboard.
As previously reported, the hip-hop artist’s private jet was forced to make an emergency landing in Nebraska as Lil Wayne suffered a seizure. The artist was reportedly on his way from Milwaukee, Wisconsin, to California at the time and had blacked out upon the plane’s landing.
Wayne’s reps confirm that he did experience a “minor” seizure, though his recovery is underway. “Under the guidance of his own doctors, he is now in stable condition and good spirits. He thanks his fans for their everlasting support, prayers and well wishes,” the rep adds.
This is the fourth high-profile seizure the rapper has suffered in the past four years, dating back to October 2012. Wayne, who admitted in 2013 that he suffers from epilepsy and is “prone to seizures,” has said that he suffers seizures due to stress, lack of rest and overworking himself.
