Lil Wayne was hospitalized Tuesday after suffering a seizure, TMZ reports. The rap star, 30, was taken to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles late Tuesday night by his bodyguards after a single seizure and released early Wednesday morning, according to the website report.
“I’m fine. Thank u,” Lil Wayne tweeted at 11:23 a.m. PT Wednesday.
His publicists did not return requests for details or confirmation of the TMZ story.
Wayne, who recently revealed that he has epilepsy, spent almost a week at Cedars-Sinai in March after suffering several seizures.
“I’m an epileptic, so I’m prone to seizures,” he told L.A. radio station Power 106 afterward. “I’ve had a bunch of seizures. Y’all just never hear about it. This time it got real bad because I got three of ’em in a row, and on the third one, my heart rate went down to, like, 30%. Basically, I could have died soon. That’s why it was so serious. The reason being for the seizures is just plain stress, no rest and overworking myself.”

Sizzurp isn’t over-the-counter stuff, it’s a combination of prescription-strength cough syrup containing codeine and, often, the anti-allergy drug promethazine, with soft drinks such as Sprite and Mountain Dew, usually drunk from a styrofoam cup. Some users will drop in a Jolly Rancher sweet to mask its medicinal taste.
