33-year old US rapper Lil Wayne has reportedly suffered a pair of seizures whilst on his private jet, forcing the plane to make two separate emergency landings.
TMZ is reporting that Lil Wayne was flying from Milwaukee to California when he suffered the first seizure before losing consciousness, with the plane making a landing in Omaha. Paramedics rushed to the airstrip but the rapper reportedly refused treatment and insisted the plane take off again.
Just two minutes after taking off, its alleged Lil Wayne began seizing, once again losing consciousness and after landing on the same airstrip was rushed to hospital.
In 2013, a number of seizures left the rapper on life support and in an induced coma, a short time after which he confirmed to media outlets that he was in fact an epileptic.
Lil Wayne had supposedly quit drinking to reduce the risk of his seizures, however footage has emerged of him with drink in hand in Milwaukee yesterday evening. Messages of support from fans have also flowed in on Twitter.
