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.

I think he was just having after-shocks from being beaten with the ugly stick.

No worries. Someone on the flight may have accidentally splashed him with holy water.

Stop doing drugs and help Assumption Parish. I thought this man was from Louisiana? It's funny how rappers claim to want to help the South and then abandon Assumption Parish. Fail.

I know or have known hundreds of people in my lifetime and NOT ONE has ever had to be hospitalized for so-called dehydration. Dehydrated? Have a couple of glasses of water.

Why do these drugged-up people continue to put out such a stupid an patently untrue reason for their health issues? Make something up... appendicitis attack, hernia, shortness of breath, whatever... at least try to lie well.
