Lil Wayne - Lil Wayne in ICU following seizures

Lil Wayne is in intensive care after suffering more seizures.

The 30-year-old rapper was rushed to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles on Tuesday (13.03.13) after collapsing while filming the music video for Nicki Minaj's new single, 'High School'.

He was released on Wednesday (14.03.13) but according to gossip website TMZ: ''just hours later one of his bodyguards found him in his room, on the floor and unconscious.

''Wayne was rushed to the hospital again, but this time he did not stabilize. He was taken to ICU, where he was placed in restraints because he was shaking uncontrollably.''

He is now in an induced coma in intensive care where his condition is said to be ''unstable''.

The cause of the seizures is unclear but TMZ claim he had to have his stomach pumped three times after doctors found high amounts of codeine in his system.

This isn't Lil Wayne's first health scare; the 'Lollipop' rapper was taken ill on a flight in October which saw his private jet forced to make an emergency landing in Texas where he was then rushed to hospital.

At the time of the incident, a representative claimed he had suffered ''severe migraine and dehydration'' rather than a seizure.
