Lil Wayne's Multiple Seizures Caused by Drinking Large Amounts of Lean

Illustration for article titled Lil Waynes Multiple Seizures Caused by Drinking Large Amounts of Lean

Only a day after Lil Wayne suffered from multiple seizures aboard his private plane while en route to California, forcing it to make an emergency landing in Nebraska, TMZ has reported that a large amount of lean imbibed by the rapper caused the health scare.


According to the gossip site, Weezy was seen “cruising around with five 16 oz bottles” of the drink—a cocktail of promethazine and codeine syrup—at a nightclub in Milwaukee over the past weekend. One witness purported that the performer drank at least three bottles “just by himself.”

Wayne was hospitalized in Omaha, Nebraska after suffering multiple seizures aboard his private jet ... prompting 2 emergency landings.

Wayne previously said he doesn’t sip lean anymore because of his history with seizures and epilepsy[.]


Since the incident, one of Wayne’s representatives reported that the rapper is now in stable condition, and in “good spirits.” [TMZ]

Kylie Jenner apparently really likes her new boyfriend PartyNextDoor. I thought this was something you’re supposed to do when you have a significant other? At least have a mild tolerance for the person you smack faces with on the regular? IDK.

While Jenner’s friends told people that she got with PND (real name Jahron Anthony Brathwaite) to make rapper Tyga, her ex, jealous. But according to what one unnamed source told People, this might not exactly be the case. As the source told a reporter in an exclusive with the magazine, the couple isn’t “serious,” but Jenner’s “friends and family are actually surprised how all over him she is.”

Um, okay? [People]
