During a recent interview Lil Wayne revealed that the reason he has been in and out of the hospital is because he is epileptic. He said:
The bad news is, I’m an epileptic. I’m prone to seizures,” he said on the radio. “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 ’em. This time it got real bad because I had three of them in a row and then after the third one my heart rate went down to, like, 30%. Basically, I could have died. That’s why it was so serious.
He says that the reasons for the seizures is stress and a lack of rest. In response to TMZ trying to kill him off via social media he said:
That’s what they do. I can’t be upset at that…. I can’t get upset at TMZ for doing what they do.
