Rick Ross blames seizure on lack of sleep

REST: Rapper Rick Ross claims lack of sleep caused his seizures

RICK ROSS has blamed lack of sleep on the two seizures he suffered last month.

The rapper, who collapsed on a plane en route to a concert in Memphis on Oct 14, says that his inconsistent sleeping pattern was at the root of his ill health.

"I would get two hours of sleep and keep moving… that has to stop," he revealed on BET's 106 & Park.

The I'm a Boss star, who said that his musical commitments and label duties at Maybach Music had contributed to his irregular sleeping habits, was tested for cancer, diabetes and HIV, but was found to be "totally healthy."

"It was a case of me not getting enough rest, enough sleep," he added.

Ross first suffered a mid-air seizure on a flight to a concert in Memphis, Tennessee, forcing the plane to make an emergency landing while a doctor onboard administered CPR.

Soon after taking off for the second time, the rapper suffered yet another seizure, causing him to cancel his show.
