According to a report from TMZ, Lil Wayne was hospitalized for seizures in Los Angeles this week. The star suffered a seizure on Tuesday after shooting a music video and was taken to Cedars-Sinai hospital.

“Weezy was released several hours later, early Wednesday morning. We’re told he’s doing much better now,” the tabloid writes.

This wasn’t the first time the rapper has been hospitalized for seizures, informs The Huffington Post.

On Oct. 25, his private plane made an emergency landing as the singer suffered a seizure-like attack while en route. The rapper’s rep claimed he just had a migrane and was dehydrated.

“Lil Wayne was successfully released from the hospital after being treated for a severe migraine and dehydration,” Wayne’s rep said at the time. “He is at home on doctor mandated rest and will return to work soon. He appreciates all of his fans for their support and love.”

However, on Oct. 26, the rapper was hospitalized a second time after he reportedly suffered a seizure while on board another flight.

Soon after that Lil Wayne admitted  that he was taking seizure medication and that doctors had ordered him to “drink four water bottles a day.”

On Tuesday, the rapper was with Nicki Minaj in California shooting the music video for her “Re-Up” single, “High School.”

“Everybody that’s around him is taking care of him. Wayne has so many people around him that truly, genuinely love him. I’m not worried at all,” she said.

“Even him being on the plane, thank God that there was somebody there right away that was able to help him. I’m just thankful that he was OK.”

The news comes a month after the scandal ivolving the rapper surfaced.

During a live performance for NBA’s All-Star Weekend in Houston a month ago, Lil Wayne obviously mocked at Heat players, whom he blames for throwing him out of a game in Miami.

The famous rapper said from the stage at the time: “When I say f-ck you say nba.. When I say f-ck you say the Miami heat.”

“You let them ni–as know I’m from the streets so this ain’t no Twitter beefin or no online beef, just take it to the motherf–king streets, ni–a. F–k all them ni–as. F–k LeBron, f–k She-Wade, f–k Chris Bosh, f–k all them ni–as, man.”

“And, and, and, I f–ked Chris Bosh wife,” he rapped, wrote The New York Daily News.

Fortunately, Mrs. Bosh doesn’t seem to be anxious of Wayne’s comments regarding her. The Miami Heat forward’s wife took to Twitter to brush off the comments.

“Some people attack those who have the peace & joy they wish they had! Pay them no mind! Live your dream, strut & wave,” Mrs Bosh retweeted a post from actress Gabrielle Union, who is dating Wade.

Another retweet on Adrienne’s page stated: “Truth prevails. Today stand in your truth and ignore the chatter around and about you…. Some people create hate for profit, and some people create love for free. Pay no mind to the haters, embrace the love…. They will never bring me down.”

However, the website reported that the rapper had a fling with the bombshell before she started dating to her current husband, and the relationship ended with her conning him.

Adrienne and Wayne’s bounds were broken after she told him she had cancer and needed help paying for medical treatment — only to take his money and run.

According to sources, only a few people knew about what happened, and the story became known gossip in industry circles — so much so that rapper Gillie Da Kid used the tale to take a shot in “Fronting Like Ya Daddy.”
