TMZ claimed the rapper suffered seizure-like symptoms while traveling on his private jet and had to seek medical treatment after making an unexpected landing in Texas.

The hip-hop star's spokesperson, however, says Wayne was suffering from a serious headache and dehydration.

A statement reads: "Lil Wayne was successfully released from the hospital after being treated for a severe migraine and dehydration. 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."
