2:15 PM PT --
Wayne has since suffered a 2nd seizure and was hospitalized in Louisiana.

10:30 AM PT -- 
TMZ just spoke to the San Angelo Airport Director, who tells us the pilot of Lil Wayne's plane had declared a medical emergency for a passenger on board, who had suffered from a seizure. That passenger was Lil Wayne.

There was no mention of dehydration in the pilot's report.

When the plane landed, the director tells us, it was greeted by fire trucks and paramedics who removed Lil Wayne within ten minutes of the plane's emergency landing, and transferred him to a nearby medical center.

Lil Wayne
has been released from the hospital and is resting at home ... after suffering an in-flight medical scare yesterday, which caused his plane to make an emergency landing.

Lil Wayne's rep tells TMZ ... Wayne was treated for a severe migraine and dehydration.

The rep adds, "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."

TMZ broke the story ... Wayne's private jet made an emergency landing​ over Texas yesterday ... after our sources tell us, Wayne suffered seizure-like symptoms mid-flight. He was rushed to the hospital the moment the plane touched down. 

FYI, the pilot initially radioed in that Lil Wayne suffered a seizure.

Dehydration & migraine = PR folks code for a cracked up African American. That's what happens in a society where a dumb african american can make more money than any doctor or lawyer. This guy made more money than he was ever worth to society, and it is just enable d-baggery. Give $100 mil to an idiot - that's what you'll get. That's right, dehydration, folks. Like we gave a damn.

Too much weed and purp. Matter of time before he croaks. He already can't speak.

Nice oral hygiene. He had to to have 17 root canals because his nasty teeth were rotting out of his empty skull due to his “grillz” - I pity the poor dentist that had that job, hope he charged this dirtbag $$$$$ to do the deed. He's so dirty and smelly - can't imagine that weed breath.

Amazing how often celebrities suffer from dehydration. When I'm dehydrated I drink some water. I've never had to go to the hospital over it. Yes, I know they are saying migraines too, but if that was such a problem why even mention dehydration?

It's to funny seeing all the haters comment. No need to be mad that a black guy makes more money than all of you will in your lifetime.
