Music Superstar Cancels Shows, Hospitalized After Multiple Seizures

September 04, 2017Sep 04, 2017

One of the biggest names in the music industry is canceling shows after a serious health issue has sent him to the hospital. The hit singer and rapper, Lil Wayne, has been hospitalized in Chicago.

His admittance to the hospital came after Wayne suffered two minor seizures, according to Rolling Stone. Wayne was scheduled to perform on Sunday night at a Las Vegas nightclub. He was forced to cancel the show.

"Due to unforeseen circumstances Lil Wayne will be canceling his previously scheduled performance," Las Vegas' Drai's nightclub said in a statement Sunday. "Our priority is the health and well-being of our artists. Everyone at Drai's wishes Lil Wayne a speedy recovery during this time."

Reports said Wayne was reportedly found unconscious in his hotel room on Sunday. He was transferred to a local hospital to undergo treatment.

The incident is strikingly similar to another event Wayne suffered in 2016. In that instance, Wayne’s jet was forced to make an emergency landing after he suffered other seizures.

"I'm prone to seizures," Wayne said in 2012, months after the rapper suffered a seizure aboard another private jet flight, which also forced an emergency landing and a Texas hospitalization. "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 them."
