Lil Wayne said publicly for the first time what we told you about 2 weeks ago ... he was near death after suffering multiple, violent seizures.

Wayne, during an interview with Power 106 in L.A. yesterday, said he's an epileptic and prone to seizures.  And he said ... he's been having seizures for a long time.

As for the episodes earlier this month that landed him in ICU for 6 days at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center ... Wayne said he suffered 3 seizures in a row and his heart rate went down to 30%, adding, "I could've died."

Epilepsy is horrible, and I sympathize w/ anyone suffering. That said, I feel considering the platform he holds, that he should have been honest and direct. The purple sizzurp crap seems to be the cause here. It's not cool or funny. Stress!and lack of proper rest and nutrition are unhealthy, but they don't typically cause seizures. I think,he's played quite a part in this ridiculous trend, and should vocalize the dangers.

What kid of idiot who knows he has seizures is going to do sizxurp. He gets my vote for one of the stupidest people on the planet. Knowing that you have seizures and doing any drugs is SUICIDE. It is just a matter of time before this freekin idiot is DEAD. great way to raise your family A$$HOLE.

What's sad is, he'd be much better off if they'd simply allowed him to die.

My cousins epilepsy was caused by his drug use. EXCEPT, after one seizure he cleaned up his act. This Wayne dumbass had multiple seizures and has children
