Rapper Lil Wayne spent Tuesday night (30Apr13) in hospital after suffering another seizure, according to a U.S. report.

The Lollipop hitmaker, who recently revealed he suffers from epilepsy, was allegedly taken to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles by his bodyguards following a fit.

According to Tmz.com, he was treated by doctors and was discharged early on Wednesday (01May13).

The hip-hop star, real name Dwayne Carter, Jr., has been in and out of hospital in recent months - he collapsed on the set of Nicki Minaj's video shoot for her single High School in March (13) and was admitted to the intensive care unit at Cedars-Sinai the next day after suffering three seizures back-to-back.

It was only then, after being released from medical care, that Wayne, 30, opened up about his health troubles and told fans he has been struggling with epilepsy since he was a child.
