Lil Wayne has opened up about his recent health drama, revealing he has epilepsy and regularly suffers life-threatening seizures which fans never hear about.

The Lollipop hitmaker has been in and out of hospital in recent weeks after collapsing on the set of Nicki Minaj's video shoot for new single High School, even ending up in intensive care following another admission to a medical facility.

He was released last week (18Mar13) and quickly put plans in place for a U.S. tour with his rapper peer T.I., but now the star has spoken out about the truth behind his health woes - he's epileptic.

Explaining how he often suffers seizures, he tells U.S. radio station Power 106, "This wasn't my first, second, third, fourth, fifth, sixth, seventh... I have had a bunch of seizures, you just never hear about them."

He then reveals the public found out about his most recent episode because he almost died: "This time it got real bad 'cause I had three of them in a row and on the third one, my heart rate went down to like 30 per cent. Basically, I could've died, so that is why it was so serious.

"Certain times I don't even go to the hospital, but this time, it was real bad because it was three in a row, and I've never had three back to back like that."

The star blames his hectic schedules for bringing on the trio of seizures, adding, "The reason being for the seizures is just plain stress, no rest, overworking myself. That's just typical me though."
