According to my west coast connect — who is very well connected — troubled rapper Lil Wayne suffered a seizure around 11 p.m. Tuesday, west coast time. My source says Wayne was rushed to Cedars Sinai in Los Angeles, the same hospital where he spent a week in ICU in March.
Rapper Lil Wayne is attempting to deflect rumors of his alleged drug use by claiming to be an epileptic. Epilepsy can be an acute (new) or chronic (longstanding) disruption of signals in the brain that results in controlled or uncontrolled convulsions (seizure activity).
In an interview with LA’s Power 106 on Thursday, Wayne, 30, said epilepsy is the reason behind his multiple hospitalizations — not his reported addiction to Promethazine/Codeine prescription cough syrup (aka Sizzurp or Purple Drank), which can also cause epileptic seizures.
Promethazine/Codeine is not prescribed for epilepsy.
