After suffering from seizures over the weekend, Lil Wayne has been released from the hospital and has been ordered to rest for two weeks.

According to a report from TMZ, sources close to Tha Carter V rapper say the seizures were a result of an extremely busy schedule mixed with a lack of sleep. The incident had nothing to do with Weezy drinking lean.

Wayne reportedly was healthy during back-to-back concerts before the seizures occurred but would hang out after shows and then head straight to the recording studio with no rest. Weezy will now take a short break from touring before heading back on the road Sept. 23.

Following news of the seizures, Lil Wayne’s daughter, Reginae Carter, tweeted about her father’s condition and said he was doing well. “My dad is doing fine everyone ! Thanks for the concerns😘😘 you guys are amazing 😇,” the 18-year-old wrote. “Oh yeah .. & don’t believe everything you hear 🙂.”

In 2016, Wayne suffered another bout of seizures on a private flight to California. As it often happens, fans of the rapper assumed the seizures were a result of the rapper’s use of lean, but Weezy told TMZ the incident occurred after he didn’t take his epilepsy medication. Wayne has reportedly suffered from epilepsy and seizures since childhood.
