Lil Wayne

Lil Wayne was hospitalized this week in L.A. following what appeared to be multiple seizures ... TMZ has learned.

Sources close to the rapper tell us, Wayne suffered the seizures Tuesday night after shooting a music video in L.A. and was subsequently taken to Cedars-Sinai hospital. Weezy was released several hours later, early Wednesday morning. We're told he's doing much better now.

It's not the rapper's first encounter with seizures either -- TMZ broke the story ... Wayne suffered two seizures on board separate airplanes last October.

Lil Wayne later acknowledged he'd been prescribed seizure medication by his doc.

Weezy's rep declined to comment.

This used to happen to my ex. Every few months your body grows immune to the meds and the dose has to be raised. I am not even a fan of his and I think it is pretty sad that people automatically assume drugs or alcohol are involved.

I wonder if these guys are drinking those energy drinks. My daughter had a series of seizures and come to find out it was becuz she was drinking alot Red Bull or Monster type energy drinks. Just a thought!

Little known fact:
Lil' Waynes real middle name is "Quits".
When his Father came into the maternity ward, he looked at Lil' Wayne then looked at his Mother and said:
Let's call it Quits.

Something else is wrong with Lil Wayne, they just aren't saying. People don't keep getting seizures all the time for no reason or he's not taking his meds.
