Lil Wayne suffered a seizure today (June 13), forcing his private jet to make an emergency landing in Nebraska.

As reported by TMZ, the rapper was traveling from Milwaukee to California when he "blacked out" and experienced the seizure.

According to the report, paramedics are currently attempting to attend to Weezy, but he allegedly is refusing medical treatment (as of 1:30 p.m. PT).

The rapper has had several health scares in recent years, such as being hospitalized for seizures back in 2012 and 2013, with many speculating his health ailments were related to his partying lifestyle.

Lil Wayne has publicly stated in the past that he is epileptic and has dealt with suffering seizures as a result since he was a young child.

TMZ is reporting that Lil Wayne is currently alert.
