A plane carrying rapper Lil’ Wayne was forced to make an emergency landing yesterday (Thursday October 15, 2012) when he suffered “seizure-like symptoms,” TMZ reports.
The private jet landed in Texas, when Lil’ Wayne (real name Dwayne Michael Carter, Jr) was transported to a local hospital for treatment. According to TMZ, he remained at the hospital for several hours before checking out at around 6pm. It’s unclear at this stage what the cause of the seizure was, or whether an exact diagnosis was given. TMZ have been told however, that Weezy is “doing better.”
For one reason or another, Lil’ Wayne is rarely out of the news. Recently, he spoke to MTV about the forthcoming US presidential elections. Wayne can’t actually vote this time, because of his previous convictions but he’s done a fair bit of research anyway, just so he’s got the measure of whoever the voting public do vote in next month.
“I can't vote, so all I can do is figure out who these people are and whoever you guys choose at least I know a little bit about them,” he said, adding “I am paying attention to it and you know for me following it meaning I kinda did my research on who both of these people were and not really about what they're talking about or what they're politicking about... but just to figure out who these people are.”
