Rapper Lil Wayne recovering after health scare

LIL Wayne has assured fans he is fine after his health scare.

The rapper has been released from hospital and is resting at home after an in-flight medical scare on Thursday (25.10.12), when his private jet was forced to make an emergency landing in Texas when he suffered "seizure-like symptoms" but he insists he is feeling good.

He tweeted: "Thanx for all the prayers! I am good (sic)"

Wayne - whose real name is Dwayne Michael Carter, Jr. - was rushed to hospital the moment his jet touched down in Texas after the pilot radioed in to say the rapper was suffering a seizure.

However, a representative for the 30-year-old rapper denied this and said he was only treated for a severe migraine and dehydration.

He explained: "He is at home on doctor mandated rest and will return to work soon.

"He appreciates all of his fans for their support and love."

The 'No Worries' hitmaker is currently preparing for the release of his 10th album, 'I Am Not a Human Being II', which is due out in December.
