Rapper Lil Wayne Now ‘stable’ After Suffering Seizures
TMZ reported that the Grammy-winning performer was taken to hospital after his private jet was forced to make two emergency landings at an Omaha airport on Monday afternoon.
Dennis Messina, an operations supervisor at Omaha’s Eppley Airfield, said a plane landed at around 2.40pm due to a medical emergency, but that treatment was refused.
The plane refuelled and was just taking off when the pilot declared another medical emergency and returned to the airport.
Mr Messina could not confirm that Lil Wayne, whose real name is Wayne Carter, was on board the aircraft.
Spokesman Derek Sherron said the rapper “thanks his fans for their everlasting support, prayers and well-wishes”.
