Was Lil Wayne’s addiction to “lean” the reason for his most recent seizure during a plane ride? According to TMZ, the seizures may be a direct result of Wayne drinking Promethazine/Codeine.
The site reports several witnesses claiming to have seen the Cash Money rapper hanging out in a Milwaukee nightclub with five 16 ounce bottles of the drug. One witness alleges Weezy guzzled three bottles himself. He supposedly continued drinking the cocktail at an after party.
Lil Wayne was admitted to an Omaha, Nebraska hospital after suffering two seizures on his private jet. Due to the medical crisis, the jet made two emergency landings. Lil Wayne has gone on record claiming to have given up “lean” because of the seizures. However, it seems like he might’ve fallen off the wagon.
A rep for the New Orleans rapper says Wayne’s condition is stable and he’s in good spirits, but has not addressed these specific allegations.
The footage below shows Wayne with a large Styrofoam cup, but of course there is no way to determine what it contains.
This afternoon, Wayne took to Twitter to thank his fans for their support, but didn’t go into any details about his seizures or their cause. “Thanx for all the prayers!!” he wrote “I love y’all.”
