2:45 PM PT --
Wayne was just released from Ochsner Medical Center in Kenner, Louisiana ... and TMZ obtained a photo of the rapper as he entered his waiting SUV (see photo above). 

3:58 PM PT --
A person claiming to be Wayne's rep has released a statement saying our story is false and that he's at home in Louisiana recovering from migraines.

But TMZ has confirmed our story with people who were at the hospital and people who positively represent Wayne ... and we are positive our story is correct.

Lil Wayne
is about to be released from a Louisiana hospital ... after suffering ANOTHER seizure on board an airplane ... his 2nd seizure in 24 hours ... TMZ has learned.

Weezy was on board a flight from Texas to LAX -- when he began to convulse. We're told the flight was immediately diverted to Louisiana ... and Wayne was admitted to a local hospital for treatment.

We broke the story ... Wayne had been hospitalized last night after a pilot reported that the rapper was experiencing seizures on board his flight.

Wayne was treated in Texas -- his rep insisted Weezy was only suffering from dehydration and migraines ... and was released hours later.

You'd think the dufus would figure out every time he goes to the lav and looks in the mirror this is what happens.

Its from the withdrawl of xanex and promethazine. The same reason Rick Ross had those seizures last year. If you a copious amount of Xanex and then just stop, even for a few hours you automatically seize. And Xanex is the one drug (besides alcohol) where you can DIE from the withdrawls. I myself had a seizure from withdrawing off xanex, thought I was okay, shook it off (for lack of a better term) and then hours later had another one. The fact that these rappers are just passing it off as "dehydration" is horrific. When you have a seizure it takes DAYS to recover. Your speech stays slurred, your brain cant remember things it should, you cant form sentences.. your brain literally hit the RESET button and needs ALOT of time to get back to a normal state. Knowing hes probably going to leave the hospital and get on a stage or a tourbus and continue to party is sad. Drugs are and will be the downfall of the music industry.
