Not A Hoax: Lil' Wayne's Jet Makes Emergency Landing & Rapper Is Rush To Omaha Hospital

Lead Stories has independently confirmed that a private jet carrying Lil' Wayne from Milwaukee to Los Angeles made an emergency landing in Omaha, Nebraska, because of a health crisis striking the rapper Monday afternoon.

A DJ who was with Lil' Wayne in Milwaukee posted that he "had a seizure this morning leaving Milwaukee heading to California." TMZ later reported that Lil' Wayne was treated by paramedics at the Omaha airport and then rushed to a hospital.

Flight records viewed by Lead Stories confirm the Omaha flight diversion. The hip hop star's representatives have not commented on his health condition.

Lil Wayne has been the subject of numerous online health scare hoaxes, although he was hospitalized in 2013 for serious seizures.
