article imageRapper Lil Wayne admits he is epileptic

By Leo Reyes     Mar 30, 2013 in Entertainment
Grammy award-winning rapper Lil Wayne admitted he is an epileptic and recently had three back-to-back seizures which he attributed to lack of rest and stress.
"The bad news is I'm an epileptic. I'm prone to seizures," he tells radio's Power 108 (via Rap-Up.com). "This isn’t my first, second, third, fourth, fifth, sixth, seventh seizure. I’ve had a bunch of seizures, ya’ll just never hear about them. But this time it got real bad ’cause I had three of them in a row and on the third one, my heart rate went down to like 30 percent. Basically, I could’ve died, so that is why it was so serious." billboard.com writes.
Wayne's past confinement in jails for drug and gun-related charges as well as his lack of rest and too much work, could have taken its toll on his health.
IN 2010, Lil Wayne, whose real name is Dwayne Michael Carter Jr., served a one year jail term at the Rikers Island jail in New York after he was sentenced for illegal gun possession.
The charge stemmed from a 2007 traffic stop of his tour bus in New York when authorities said they smelled marijuana, and as they approached, he tossed aside a bag with a loaded .40-caliber handgun. Read more:
Last year, Wayne was reported to have several seizures while flying on his private jet which required the aircraft to make an emergency landing in Texas for medical assistance. This was followed by another emergency landing in New Orleans the day after he had a seizure aboard the plane.
Wayne's publicist denied the reports about Wayne's medical condition saying the reports were exaggerated.
Last Thursday, the popular rapper admitted he had three seizures in a row.
