Lil Wayne Hospitalized After Suffering Multiple Seizures

Lil Wayne performs during the 2017 Billboard Music Awards at T-Mobile Arena on May 21, 2017 in Las Vegas.

Lil Wayne is recovering in hospital after he suffered multiple seizures in a Chicago hotel room, according to reports.

The 34-year-old rapper, who has epilepsy, missed a performance in Las Vegas on Sunday night after enduring a number of fits, TMZ reports.

Doctors at Northwestern Memorial advised against immediately releasing Wayne due to his latest run of poor health. As a result, his scheduled show Sunday night at Drais Beachclub in Las Vegas was canceled.

“Lil Wayne and the entire Young Money / Maverick team are valued partners and members of the Drai’s LIVE family,” the show’s promoters explained in a social media post. “Our priority is the health and well-being of our artists. Everyone at Drai’s wishes Lil Wayne a speedy recovery during this time.”

The rapper, whose real name is Dwayne Michael Carter Jr, has had a string of well-publicised health setbacks in recent years.

He was hospitalized in June 2016 after suffering what was described at the time as two minor seizures just days prior to his planned appearance at the E3 Expo in Los Angeles. And in 2013, Wayne spent time in an intensive care unit. “The reason being for the seizures is just plain stress, no rest, overworking myself. That’s just typical me though,” he said at the time.

Police Put on Leave after Arresting Nurse

A Salt Lake City police officer has been put on paid leave after he was filmed arresting and roughing up a nurse at a hospital for refusing to allow blood to be drawn from an unconscious patient.

Nurse Alex Wubbels said she was frightened when the police officer handcuffed and dragged her screaming from the hospital in July.

After Wubbels and her lawyers released the dramatic footage of the arrest in the state of Utah, prosecutors called for a criminal investigation and Salt Lake City police put Detective Jeff Payne on paid leave on Friday.

In a tweet, the police department said another “employee” who was involved was also on administrative leave pending investigation.

“This cop bullied me. He bullied me to the utmost extreme,” Wubbels said in an interview with The Associated Press news agency. “And nobody stood in his way.”

The Salt Lake City police chief and mayor apologised and changed department policies in line with the guidance Wubbels was following in the July 26 incident.

Wubbels said she adhered to her training and hospital protocols to protect the rights of a patient who could not speak for himself.

The video has gone viral, with many on social media once again raising questions about police brutality in the United States.

Payne wrote in a police report that he grabbed Wubbels and took her outside to avoid causing a “scene” in the emergency room.

He said his boss, a lieutenant whose actions also were being reviewed, told him to arrest Wubbels if she kept interfering.

The detective left Wubbels in a police car for 20 minutes before realising that blood had already been drawn as part of treatment, said her lawyer, Karra Porter. Wubbels was not charged.

The hospital said it is proud of the way Wubbels handled the situation.

The patient was a victim in a car crash and Payne wanted the blood sample to show he had done nothing wrong, according to the officer’s written report.

The patient, William Gray, is a reserve police officer in Rigby, Idaho, according to the city’s police. They thanked Wubbels for protecting his rights.

Gray is a semi-truck driver and was on the road when a pick-up truck fleeing from authorities slammed into him and his truck burst into flames, police reports say.

Fatal Accident at Ohio State Fair

A chaotic scene unfolded at the Ohio State Fair after a ride malfunctioned during opening day — killing one person and injuring several others.

A video posted online appears to show several people on the Fire Ball ride seconds before parts of the structure, including a full row of seats, split up and fell.
Tragedy struck around 7:20 pm (local time) Wednesday at the popular fair in Columbus. The Fire Ball, which consists of at least six rows of seats that spin around 40 feet above the ground as the entire structure moves like a pendulum, broke apart while it was in motion.
Ohio State Highway Patrol Superintendent Col. Paul A. Pride said one person was killed and seven others were injured, two of whom are in critical condition.
‘It’s my worst nightmare’
Rhonda Burgess said one of her sons was standing in line at a nearby ride when the incident took place.
“The ride had four riders per cart. This piece snapped off and the riders came out of the cart,” she said. “At least two (people) flew through the air at least 20 feet before landing on their backs on the concrete.”
Within seconds, Kaylie Bellomy found herself in the middle of a crowd. She had been waiting her turn to get on the Fire Ball when she watched the turmoil erupt.
“Everybody was running. I got ran over trying to get out of the way,” she told CNN affiliate WCMH. “I just don’t think I’ll ever ride a ride ever again.”
Deputies asked attendees standing near the ride to step back as someone screamed “it’s my worst nightmare,” video footage shows. Workers were also seen placing barriers as medics and staff tend to those injured.
Three patients were taken to Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center, hospital spokeswoman Eileen Scahill said.
As of Thursday, one was in serious condition and the two others were in critical condition, the hospital said in a statement.
David Evans, the center’s medical director, said it was helpful to see video of the incident that was posted to social media because it helped them look for certain types of injuries.
“Having that video really showed us that this was a great force and a great mechanism, really consistent with a high-speed motor vehicle crash with an ejection, really something more along those lines,” he said.
The other four people injured were taken to Ohio Health Grant Medical Center. CNN has reached out to that facility for an update on their conditions.

Kanye West Still in Hospital

Kanye West is on the road to recovery.

<a href=”https://itsvainsworld.files.wordpress.com/2016/11/kanye-west-1.png”><img class=”alignnone size-full wp-image-872″ src=”https://itsvainsworld.files.wordpress.com/2016/11/kanye-west-1.png&#8221; alt=”kanye-west-1″ width=”474″ height=”356″ /></a>

The 39-year-old rapper is “doing much better” after being hospitalized on Monday, and his wife, Kim Kardashian West, is supporting her husband 100 percent, a source close to the couple tells ET.

“He just needed some rest,” the source says of Kanye. “[Kim] is currently with Kanye right now at his side. Kim feels more connected to Kanye than ever. Their marriage is doing great.”

Kanye remains hospitalized at UCLA Medical Center where he continues to recover from what a source called “a mental breakdown.” Prior to the hospitalization, Kanye had been making headlines for erratic behavior at his latest shows, before abruptly canceling the rest of his Saint Pablo tour on Monday.

<a href=”https://itsvainsworld.files.wordpress.com/2016/11/kanye-1-598×340-sized-770x415xc.jpg”><img class=”alignnone wp-image-871 size-full” src=”https://itsvainsworld.files.wordpress.com/2016/11/kanye-1-598×340-sized-770x415xc.jpg&#8221; width=”770″ height=”415″ /></a>

“It was a combination of a lot of issues: stress, anxiety, paranoia. He just broke,” the source previously told ET. “There have been signs recently of him just overwhelmed. Kanye hasn’t been himself for a while.”

According to our source, 36-year-old Kim was “terrified” when she heard the news of Kanye’s hospitalization. Kim was in New York City to attend the Angel Ball, but quickly flew back to Los Angeles and straight to the hospital to see Kanye.

“She was so scared when she heard the news and rushed to his side,” the source said. “There was no question about her staying in NYC. She had to be with him last night.”

Meanwhile, the Kardashians are showing their full support for Kanye. Kourtney Kardashian sported Yeezy sweat pants flying back to Los Angeles from NYC on Tuesday, in a clear sign of support for her brother-in-law.

ET spoke to his mother-in-law, Kris Jenner, at the Angel Ball on Monday, when she said she thought Kanye was “exhausted.”

“I think he’s exhausted. Just really tired,” Jenner said. “It’s a grueling tour.”
