(Newser) – Lil Wayne was taken to a hospital Monday after a series of seizures forced his private jet to make two emergency landings, both in Omaha, Nebraska. The rapper, who in 2013 revealed he has epilepsy, was flying from Milwaukee to California when he suffered a seizure, reports TMZ. Once on the ground, Lil Wayne refused treatment and his jet set off again.

Minutes later, however, he suffered another seizure, forcing a second emergency landing. He was taken to a hospital by ambulance, though he walked off the plane himself, reports E! His rep tells Billboard he's "in stable condition and good spirits." Billboard calls Monday's events the "fourth high-profile seizure the rapper has suffered in the past four years." (Lil Wayne recently did something pretty cool for service members at an airport.)
