Lil Wayne Reveals Epilepsy Diagnosis
Rapper admits he has had many more seizures than the public know about...
The rapper has been hospitalised on several occasions over the last year after suffering from seizures.
Speaking to Power 106 FM in Los Angeles, he said: "The bad news is I'm an epileptic, I'm prone to seizures.
"Like, 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 them.
"This time it got real bad 'cause I had three of them in a row and on the third one, my heart rate went down to like 30 per cent.
"Basically, I could've died, so that is why it was so serious. But the reason being for the seizures is just plain stress, no rest, overworking myself."
But Weezy insisted that his entourage know how to take care of him in the event of another episode.
"They already know how to handle it," he said. "Certain times I don't even go to the hospital, but this time, it was real bad because, like I said, it was three in a row, and I've never had three back to back like that."
Wayne released his 10th album, I Am Not A Human Being II, this week.
