Rapper Lil Wayne struck by epileptic seizure

Lil Wayne suffered another seizure on Tuesday night.

The 'Lollipop' rapper - who confirmed that he is epileptic and nearly died after his heart rate decreased to "30 per cent" in March - was taken to Cedars-Sinai hospital in Los Angeles, after suffering another single attack.

A source told gossip website TMZ.com that the 30-year-old Grammy Award winner was treated and released early yesterday morning.

The rapper assured his fans that he is doing well after his latest health scare and wrote on Twitter: "I'm fine. Thank u."

He previously opened up about his condition after spending six days in intensive care in March.

He said: "[I'm] prone to seizures. This isn't my first, second, third, fourth, fifth, sixth, seventh seizure. I've had a bunch of seizures, ya'll just never hear about them.

"But 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."

The father-of-four made his first public appearance after being released from hospital in early April in Miami to promote his new album 'I Am Not A Human Being II'.

He was most recently spotted cheering on the Los Angeles Lakers on Friday night.
