Lil Wayne Breaks Silence On Hospitalization, Admits “I’m Epileptic” [Audio]
After being hospitalized in LA’s Cedar-Sinai Medical Center for suffering seizures, and reports saying it was a result of “high amounts of codeine” and “last rights were being prepared,” Lil Wayne has finally reached out to set the record straight. In a conversation with DJ Felli Fel of Power 106, Wayne admits he’s epileptic and denies other reports .
“The bad news is I’m epileptic so I’m prone to seizures,” Wayne explained. “This isn’t my first, second, third, fourth, fifth, sixth or seventh seizure. I’ve had a bunch of seizures. Y’all just never hear about them. But this time, it got real bad because I had three of them in a row. With the third one, my heart rate went down to like 30 percent,” he explained. “The reason being for the seizures is just plain stress, no rest and overworking myself.”
When asked if he was mad at TMZ. “Nah. That’s what they do. I can’t be upset at that. I get upset at my kids when they do things I tell them not to do. I can’t get upset at TMZ for doing what they do. They gon’ probably come out tomorrow and say something else about somebody else that ain’t true. That’s what they do. The truth isn’t good enough for them so they gotta twist everything up.”
