Rapper Lil Wayne experienced an in-flight medical scare twice during a 24-hour period. On Thursday, Wayne’s pilot had to make an emergency landing in Texas after he was complaining of a severe migraine during the flight, while other reports suggest that he suffered seizure-like symptoms. However, the hip-hop star’s spokesperson has since played down the claims.
The representative said the “Lollipop” hitmaker was suffering from a serious headache and dehydration.
“Lil Wayne was successfully released from the hospital after being treated for a severe migraine and dehydration. He is at home on doctor mandated rest and will return to work soon. He appreciates all of his fans for their support and love.”
Wayne, whose real name is Dwayne Michael Carter, Jr., was on the plane traveling from Texas to Los Angeles when he started convulsing and the plane was forced to immediately divert to Louisiana. The 30-year-old singer was released Thursday and was heading home.
But then on Friday, the rap star was back in hospital following another mid-air emergency – this time over Louisiana.
He was admitted to Ochsner Medical Center in Kenner, treated and released.
Wayne is currently at home resting in Louisiana.
