Lil Wayne is reportedly doing just fine after suffering from multiple seizures in Chicago on Sunday.

“My dad is doing fine everyone!” his daughter, Reginae Carter, tweeted Monday. “Thanks for the concerns you guys are amazing.”

Lil Wayne cancelled a concert in Las Vegas after suffering multiple seizures, a representative for the rapper told TMZ.

TMZ reported Sunday that Wayne was hospitalized earlier that day due to his recurring struggles with epilepsy.

Multiple sources told TMZ that Wayne was found unconscious in his hotel room at the Westin on Chicago’s Michigan Avenue after suffering at least one seizure.

Wayne was then rushed to Northwestern Memorial Hospital, according to TMZ, where he suffered another seizure.

Wayne’s team tried getting him discharged late Sunday afternoon so he could perform in Las Vegas later that night.

Doctors advised against discharging Wayne, however, believing flying would be too dangerous for him as he has suffered seizures while doing so before.

Wayne’s rep told TMZ that the rapper is currently resting, and doctors told his team to keep him grounded for a few days.

Wayne was slated to perform at Drais Beachclub in Las Vegas alongside hip hop duo Rae Sremmurd Sunday night.

The musician has suffered from epilepsy since childhood, a condition which has caused him to repeatedly experience seizures in recent years.

Wayne cancelled a scheduled performance in July 2016, for example, as part of an Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) pre-party.

The rapper had been scheduled to perform at TAO nightclub in Las Vegas ahead of the UFC 200 pay-per-view.

UFC 200 was headlined by a women’s bantamweight championship fight between then-champion Miesha Tate and challenger Amanda Nunes.

Wayne was also hospitalized in June 2016 after suffering at least two seizures aboard his private jet.

The incident forced the aircraft to make two emergency landings in Omaha, one for each seizure.

Wayne has sold over 100 million records worldwide, ranking him among the best-selling artists in history.

The performer has also had multiple hit singles, including “6 Foot 7 Foot,” “Lollipop” and “Got Money.”
