Lil Wayne: I have epilepsy

    052512-music-tweets-lil-wayne.jpgLil Wayne has finally come clean about a medical condition that he’s been battling in secret for years.

    After suffering another run of seizures while he was in Los Angeles shooting the video for “High School” with Nicki Minaj, Wayne revealed that he’s got epilepsy.

    “I’m an epileptic, so I’m prone to seizures,” Weezy told Power 106 in Los Angeles. The condition is a brain disorder that causes victims to repeatedly suffer seizures. “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 it.”

    Weezy did not, however, confirm rumors that he was in a medically induced coma after his most recent episode. That doesn’t mean that he glossed over the severity of the medical emergency, admitting that he almost didn’t make it.

    “It got real bad because I got three [seizures] in a row, and on the third one my heart rate went down to, like, 30 percent,” said Wayne. “Basically, I could’ve died soon. That’s why it was so serious.”
