On Monday Lil Wayne Reveals He Has Epilepsy was a top story. Here is the recap: (Radio.com) Lil Wayne has had a rough time in recent weeks. He was rushed to the hospital after having multiple seizures on a music video set, reported to have been near death, tweeted that he was, in fact, OK, and finally, he made it home in time to announce a new tour. After all that, Weezy recently revealed that he suffers from epilepsy.
On Thursday (March 28) Wayne admitted that he has suffered from multiple seizures in his lifetime that he kept from his fans. "The thing is, man, the bad news is, I'm an epileptic, so I'm prone to seizures," the rapper said in a radio interview. "This isn't my first, second, third, fourth, fifth, sixth, seventh seizure. I've had a bunch of seizures; y'all just never hear about it. This time, it got real bad because I got three of 'em in a row and on the third one, my heart rate went down to, like, 30 percent. Basically, I could've died soon. That's why it was so serious."
During Wayne's hospitalization rumors circulated that Weezy's seizures were a result of ingesting Sizzurp, a promethazine and codeine cocktail that has been known to cause death. Wayne offered a different explanation.
"The reason being for the seizures is just plain stress, no rest and overworking myself," he said. "That's typical me, though." - He also shared his opinion of TMZ
