*Lil Wayne had to cancel his scheduled appearance Tuesday at the Electronic Entertainment Expo after suffering what his rep described as two minor seizures during a flight on Monday.
The rapper and Samsung pitchman was due at the company’s booth at the Los Angeles Convention Center to show off his mobile skateboarding game, “Sqvad Up.”
TMZ reported that the rapper’s private jet was forced to make two emergency landings at an Omaha airport after he experienced the seizures Monday afternoon.
Lil Wayne’s rep says the 33-year-old is under the care of his own doctors and was in good spirits.
E3 continues through Thursday and Samsung says Lil Wayne may be rescheduled.
On Tuesday, he took to Twitter to thank fans for their prayers.
thanx for all the prayers!! I love y’all

This was the fourth high-profile seizure Wayne has suffered in the past four years. In October 2012, he suffered a seizure while mid-flight from Texas to California. He suffered another seizure in March 2013. He admitted at the time that he suffers from epilepsy and is “prone to seizures.”
TMZ reported Tuesday that Weezy drank a large amount of lean (Promethazine/Codeine syrup) in the hours leading up to his latest seizures. Witnesses told the site that he had five 16 oz. bottles of the concoction during his club appearance in Milwaukee over the weekend, with one onlooker saying Wayne downed three bottles just by himself. He also reportedly continued sipping during the after-party.
Wayne previously said he stopped sipping lean because of his history with seizures and epilepsy. Apparently, that was short lived.
