According to TMZ, the first seizure occurred in the middle of a cross-country flight from Milwaukee to California, forcing the pilot to make an emergency landing in Omaha.

The rapper initially refused medical attention and re-boarded his private jet, the site reports, but suffered another seizure just minutes after taking off, which led to another emergency landing and Wayne being transported to a hospital.

The 33-year-old GRAMMY winner has described himself as having epilepsy and spent six days at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles in 2013 after suffering a seizure in his sleep.

Following the 2013 episode, Wayne reached out to his fans, tweeting, "I'm good everybody. Thx for the prayers and love."
