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? No, the reason you have seizures is because you've been sippin sizzurp since you were like 15 fool.

Heart rate went down to 30%? 30% of what? That is not something a medical professional would say.

Epilepsy is caused by drug abuse, and yes we medical people see them die on the table all the time.

I can't stop laughing at his comment. Sizzurp causes seizures you uneducated fool. To "I almost died" from seizures is correct but not from having one, but from drinking codeine. All the money you could want and you constantly need and seek out attention because for whatever reason you are desperate for it. Spend some times with your kids, clean yourself up and stop acting like an idiot. Perhaps then we will once again care about what the heck is going on with you.

Didn't the reports state that they did not know what was causing the seizures the first time it was reported. If he has been epileptic for a long time then there would have been no doubt as to why he was having seizures. Looks suspicious to me.

Why didn't he have the decency to die when he could have.
Epileptics generally are controlled with medication.
This sounds like an alibi.
If true, why was his stomach pumped?
