Lil Wayne was hospitalized in Chicago on Sunday after he suffered an epileptic seizure and was found unconscious in his hotel room, TMZ reported. He later suffered a second seizure at the hospital and is now resting following the medical ordeal, the website added.
A representative for the Grammy-winning rapper confirmed to TMZ that Lil Wayne, 34, had suffered “multiple seizures.” A Las Vegas show, which he had been scheduled to perform late Sunday night, was canceled, the rep added.
Drai’s Beachclub Nightclub confirmed the cancellation on its Facebook page on Sunday night.
“Our priority is the health and well-being of our artists. Everyone at Drai’s wishes Lil Wayne a speedy recovery during this time,” the club wrote.
Lil Wayne, whose real name is Dwayne Michael Carter Jr., has been hospitalized in the past for seizures. In 2016, his private jet had to make an emergency landing during a cross-country flight after he suffered multiple seizures in the air. In 2013, he was admitted to an intensive care unit in Los Angeles after enduring what the rapper later described as life-threatening seizures.
