Lil Wayne has reportedly suffered a seizure forcing his private jet to make an emergency landing.

The New Orleans rapper, whose real name is Dwayne Michael Carter Jr, was flying from Milwaukee to California when his pilot was forced to land in Omaha on Monday, TMZ reports. He apparently blacked out when the plan touched down.

Carter suffered two seizures in 2012 and another in 2013. He's previously said that he's epileptic and has suffered seizures since his childhood.

"This isn't my first, second, third, fourth, fifth, sixth or seventh seizure," Carter told Power 106 in 2013. "I've had a bunch of seizures. Y'all just never hear about them. But this time, it got real bad because I had three of them in a row."
