Lil Wayne Lil Wayne

After speculation about Lil Wayne's health went into overdrive (and sometimes fictional territory) during his recent hospital stay, the rapper has now revealed the cause of his seizures.

"The bad news is, I'm an epileptic, so I'm prone to seizures," Weezy revealed Thursday on Los Angeles' Power 106 radio station. "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. 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 percent. Basically, I could've died soon. That's why it was so serious."
