CHICAGO — Lil Wayne was hospitalized again this weekend for his ongoing bout with epilepsy and the seizures that come with it, TMZ reports.

Wayne was hospitalized Sunday in Chicago after he was found unconscious in his hotel room at the Westin on Michigan Avenue, TMZ quotes multiple sources as saying. He reportedly had suffered at least one seizure.

He was taken to Northwestern Memorial Hospital, where he reportedly suffered another seizure.

Sources say his team tried to have him discharged late Sunday afternoon so he could make it to his Las Vegas  show.

However, doctors advised against the discharge, saying he should be grounded for a few days. Wayne has suffered seizures while flying before, and doctors felt it was too risky.

Wayne was supposed to perform at Drais Beachclub in Las Vegas at midnight but was forced to cancel the show.

Seizures have plagued Wayne for years.  Last year he had to cancel an appearance in Las Vegas because of his epilepsy.

It’s not clear whether he has been released from the hospital.
