I don't know if there's any truth to it, but I heard that he might have been on cocaine when it happened. Whatever happened or caused it, it's a scary situation.

has seizures because he's a drug addict. no big surprise. he's been a drug addict forever. during his 1st or 2nd visit to rehab more than 20 yrs ago, he had the nerve to compare himself to keith richards. yes - he said this to me. he's an egomaniac. and i pray for him.

Don't jump to conclusions about drugs. Seizure disorders come in a variety of forms. And Epilepsy is frightening to people who don't understand it. That's why many celebs who have it hide it. It would cause this kind of speculation, potentially ruining their careers by branding them unmarketable.

Actually, most who have it don't tell anyone but those close to them because of this kind of stigma.

quite a publicity stunt to promote his clothing line. i wonder if the flight would've been interrupted if he'd been a black woman from Haiti? I doubt it. ANd I seriously he could be the first passenger to have an inflight medical emergency. Don't they usually just treat someone onboard?

Scott has been clean for years. He has had one minor relapse with cocaine a couple years ago after his brother died. I suggest people start getting their facts straight before they start spreading lies.
