He was just working too hard...
Birdman says that Lil Wayne's seizure was caused by stress and not drugs. The Cash Money co-CEO spoke with Hot 97 and said that the rapper suffered a single seizure, not multiple as has been reported and that it was caused by working too much and too hard.
"It didn't have nothing to do with drugs," Birdman said. "No such thing like that. To me, it's just how he works. He works around the clock, he's just a hard grinder for this music. But it wasn't nothing about no drugs. He just needs to get some rest and relax."
He added of the seizure, which took place on Tuesday during a music video shoot, "I was there with him. I mean the ambulance came so we got him straight to the hospital where they can contain him."
TMZ has reported that a second seizure took place on Wednesday, hours after he was released, that was nearly fatal. Birdman said of the report, "We was watching the game when that popped off. No, he's never been about to die or anything like that...We got family and kids, so when you putting out false rumors like that you can really damage families like that. He'll be home soon."
