Lil Wayne's "doing fine" after seizure reports, daughter says

Lil Wayne is "doing fine," his daughter Reginae Carter is assuring fans after reports her dad was hospitalized due to seizures.

He was taken to a hospital Sunday after suffering seizures in Chicago, TMZ reported. The rapper also known as Dwayne Michael Carter Jr. has been hospitalized before for the same reason in years past.

Lil Wayne and his ex, Toya Wright, are no longer a couple but are amicable co-parents. They teamed up for Reginae's 16th birthday bash a while back. The star-studded extravaganza was featured on MTV’s “Super Sweet 16” in February 2015 and included scenes filmed at Wright's Smyrna boutique, Garb.

“Her dad was like, ‘give her whatever she wants,'” Wright said of her ex-husband during an interview at the shop. “I’m big on budgets. We ended up pulling it off.”

“The most exciting part was getting my cars: I got a Ferrari and a BMW X4,” Reginae told us at the time. “That’s what I asked for but I didn’t know they were going to get it for me so that was surprising. I can’t really drive the Ferrari. I drive the Beemer a lot. That’s my every day car.”

The best gifts from her parents, though, are priceless.

“The best thing I inherited from my mother was the way she raised me to be humble and grounded,” she said. “With my father I’ll say his work ethic. I’ll go from singing to acting – I just like to do a lot of things. That’s what my father likes to do. It’s never enough.”

Here are her recent posts giving updates on her dad's condition:
