Lil Wayne

Won't Appear at His Trial

Lil Wayne will not appear at his trial after suffering several seizure-like episodes, and the only Wayne the jury will see is his video deposition -- a depo which the judge said shows he acted like an irresponsible little child.

As we told you ... Wayne is suing Quincy Jones III over a documentary about the rapper that he calls a "scandalous portrayal."

Wayne was not in court today because of his medical emergency on Thursday on board a private jet. The pilot radioed Wayne had seizures and he was subsequently hospitalized.

Wayne's lawyer told the judge he will play Wayne's deposition tapes for the jury, but there will be NO Wayne in person. But that's a huge problem because the tapes -- which TMZ posted last month -- show Wayne acting like a child, giving glib one liners and refusing to answer questions.

The tapes are hilarious -- but the judge wasn't laughing today, chastising Wayne for displaying "unreasonable conduct in the deposition" and "irresponsible behavior."
