Lil Wayne admits he could have died from latest epilepsy episode

Lil Wayne has revealed that he was potentially close to death after his recent seizure outbreak.

As previously reported, the US rapper was recently hospitalised after suffering a seizure, but he was later released.

Speaking to Power 106 FM, Wayne admitted that he has a long-running problem with epilepsy and has kept his previous seizures quiet from the public.

However, his latest outbreak saw him have three seizures in a row, with his heart rate dropping to near a fatal level. 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."

Wayne continued: "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%. 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."
