“We wish Famous Dex a speedy recovery after his epileptic seizure last night,” TMZ reports. “He is currently in good spirits and hopes to return back to finishing his new album. He thanks all his fans for their prayers and well wishes.”
TMZ also reports that the Los Angeles County Fire Department received a call about someone having a seizure at 2 a.m. and they arrived minutes later.
It’s unknown what led to this seizure, but the rapper has struggled with codeine addiction. Last year during an Instagram Live session Dez dozed off while talking to his followers, a common aftereffect of drinking codeine. While it hasn’t been proven that Dex’s seizure is a direct result of drinking lean, the drug has been said to lead to seizures.
Sipping codeine is popular drug among rappers. The late Pimp C died from complications with lean in 2007. In Rick Ross’ memoir Hurricanes, the Miami rapper admitted that his codeine abuse lead to him having seizures.
